After their sellout gigs in 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 The Smyths return once again to The Liquid Room, Edinburgh. MORE THAN A TRIBUTE We formed the band back in 2003 because of our passion for The Smiths. We didn't just want to be a tribute band - we wanted to play the music of The Smiths and recreate what is was to see and hear The Smiths live - it just happens that when you do that, the world calls you a tribute. For us that was a world of silly wigs and props - everything we felt a homage to The Smiths shouldn't be. So we spent a year rehearsing every week to make sure that when we launched we sounded genuine - The Smiths and their fans (like us) demand nothing less. We focussed on the sound and spirit of The Smiths live. Fast forward 11 years and some 500 shows later and we see and hear ourselves now spoken of as being in the top tier of tributes globally. The years in between have seen us play throughout the UK, overseas and at major festivals such as Glastonbury. We've appeared on numerous TV and radio shows and many a newspaper column written. The word tribute has also developed and grown in respect in that time, coming to represent something that is not silly or trite but the best way to see and experience the music of bands no longer with us played by artists who are as passionate and dedicated to their shows as actors and actresses. It's a pleasure and privilege to be seen as the foremost tribute to The Smiths.

“I honestly never thought anyone could cover Kate this faithfully.” - Robert Godwin, author of ‘The Illustrated Collector’s Guide to Kate Bush’ 2 hours of hits (WUTHERING HEIGHTS, BABOOSHKA, RUNNING UP THAT HILL) and album classics performed with stunning authenticity by fan-favourite tribute band CLOUDBUSTING, featuring the astounding vocals of MANDY WATSON. “Absolutely, surreally brilliant.” Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine. It’s no wonder Kate Bush was listed second (after John Lennon) in the Telegraph’s Best British Singer/Songwriter Category. Pioneering, influential, unshackled by anyone else’s rules, she occupies a musical genre of her own. Following record-breaking ticket sales for her live concerts of 2014, she became the only female artist in history to score eight simultaneous entries in the UK album charts. There is truly no other artist like her. “If you missed out on seeing Kate Bush herself, Cloudbusting are the next best thing.” Simon Mayo, BBC Radio 2. CLOUDBUSTING take the concept of the ‘tribute band’ to the next level. Richly detailed arrangements and stunning visuals let Kate fans know, from the very first note, that her legacy is in safe hands. At no point ever pretending to ‘be’ Kate, vocalist MANDY WATSON steps in and out of the emotions of each song, sharing her delight in, and respect for Kate’s music alongside an enchanted audience. And audience reaction to the show up and down the UK has been ecstatic… “Her vocals were so good, I could have been listening to Kate herself!” Preston Heyman, Kate’s studio and tour drummer. “The versions that Cloudbusting are performing are the closest by far from any tribute I’ve ever heard” – Del Palmer, Kate Bush’s longtime musical collaborator

Karnival feat Vitalic (Live) Voyager tour Pascal Arbez-Nicolas aka VITALIC is back with his new album "Voyager" and touches down for the Edinburgh leg of his European tour this October at Karnival in the Liquid Rooms ! Tickets on sale via Resident Advisor & Ticet Scotland RA link : residentadvisor.net Ticket scotland : tickets-scotland.com It’s been a good fifteen years now since Vitalic took it upon himself to redefine techno using his native French sensibility, mixing energy and melody to forge his own recognisable style. Many of those tunes, like “Poney”, “La Rock 01”, “My Friend Dario” and “You Prefer Cocaine” went on to become club classics, blurring the boundaries between techno, disco, rock and pop, and profoundly inspiring and stimulating a scene that had been struggling since the end of the ‘French touch’ to find something a little more refreshing than filtered disco house. It could be said that Vitalic ushered in the French Touch 2.0, masterfully bringing bangers back into fashion and putting France back on the dancefloor map. With his first production signed by tastemaker DJ Hell for his Gigolo imprint, Vitalic paid scant regard to genre boundaries and concentrated on simply knocking out some killer tunes – a mix of irresistible melodies, stampeding synths and pure energy. Within a few years, French electronica had changed direction, eschewing the dancefloors for which it had originally been conceived and starting to tour, live. A revolution was born - Vitalic opened the way and Daft Punk, Justice and Etienne de Crecy followed. Since his first album, “OK Cowboys” in 2005 which mixed galloping techno, brass bands, 100,000 volt electric guitars and languorous pop songs so sad they could make a stone weep, Vitalic has constantly tried to reinvent himself, pushing his idea and vision of disco to the extreme. This constant renewal is no doubt where the producer finds his strength, exploring every facet (like a disco...
