I was going to go to Edinburgh Twestival today, but a thing happened and now I'm not. But maybe you should. What it is, right, is an event being held in Ghillie Dhu that has been organised and publicised on Twitter, all in the name of charidee. Or charity, for those who prefer correct spellings.
For £8 a ticket (or a little bit more on the door, not sure how much) you get several bands (including Idlewild, who are DJing, Shooting Stansfield, who played with DanDanDan the other month, and Mitchell Museum who are playing with Kid Canaveral next month at a gig organised by Peekno and Ayetunes); fabulous raffle prizes, and lots of cake. All of the money goes to Concern to help very worthy charities in places like Haiti.
In other news, the Guardian Edinburgh Beatblog, of which regular readers have seen me write, is now live here. I will be following with interest.
