Edinburgh band, First Offence bring Basser on stage to spazz.
(Almost) all girl group Hip Priest opened the night with a cool set of cover and originals. A band for whom, I believe this was only their second show they really killed it! They have a sound, I would say somewhere between the amazing Courtney Barnett (I hope to see her in Glasgow soon!) and The Smiths. The band consists of two guitarists, one male and one female both of whom share the vocals, a keyboard player and a bassist who occasionally swaps to drums. She is very entertaining to watch performing - as if she's laughing at a joke that nobody else is in on.
Then came the incredible First Offence who I know very well - if I was to recommend one band for a good night out (excluding us!)it would be these guys. High energy, original songs and sexy beasts! Fronted by Calum Anderson, with brothers Jack and Josh on guitar and drums respectively and Ben on bass guitar these dudes are not ones to miss. But I digress, to end their set they played '500 Miles' originally by Leith Twins, The Proclaimers - except First Offence do it better and the do it louder! This was my time to shine! So i got on stage, did occasional backing vocals, sang during the chorus and then it happened, they brought the audience to their knees. Literally. And all at the same time we all jumped up and went crazy. I performed my locally famous dance move the seizure (Ben really thought I was having a fit!! Haha) and they ended their set on a high note.
