Stars In Their Eyes feat. Broken Records + Meursault + Jesus H. Foxx + Eagleowl @ Pilrig St. Pauls (Ed), £5 Buy Tickets

This night sounds absolutely brilliant. Eagleowl have taken the concept from Stars In Their Eyes and are going to let it loose on Edinburgh gig goers. All the groups playing will be taking on the appearance and music of a famous act and I’ve even heard rumours Matthew Kelly will be there (he won’t). Everyone attending is encouraged to dress up, and the night is open to all ages and also bring your own booze (that does not mean teeny boppers can turn up with their bucky btw)!
