I ambled along to The Picture House in Edinburgh on Sunday with the Doc of Rock, to see a very un-rock-like band, Beirut. I'd never been to this venue before, and was interested to see what it was like. I say I've never been here before, but I had once, a very long time ago, when it was an extremely grotty club. Thankfully, it's no longer grotty, and is in fact quite presentable inside. Kind of like a smaller, cleaner, more friendly Barrowlands, but without having yet earned that rock 'n' roll grit.
It's a shame there aren't more bands that I want to see appearing at The Picture House, they often seem to have well-known covers bands or the like. That's the rough and tumble of the post-modern milieu I guess.
