Ooh la la, The French Wives will be playing a last minute gig in Avalanche Records on Sunday at 5pm, they will also play at sneaky petes the same day... but why pay when you can come to avalanche, buy their single then get back home and watch the Antiques Roadshow or the X-factor results if you mental.

this is what those pesky kids at the list have to say about them... Coming from the same mould of sunshine boy/girl pop of Belle and Sebastian and Camera Obscura that the usually dreich and dour Glasgow seems to embrace. Perfect for woolly jumpers your nan made, leaf tea and walking barefoot in Kelvingrove Park

So that is Sunday 1st November at 5pm


Here is local boy Withered Hand performing live in the shop

Here we see a straggle of shy retiring types trying to get you to support your local record shop...

Rachael Sage will play at avalanche on Thursday the 15th of October at about 5pm

She was born in Port Chester, NY and studied drama and ballet, before switching to music. She has released eight albums, as of August 2008, on her own label, MPress Records, and regularly tours both North America and Europe.
Sage is a self-taught pianist, influenced by her parents Doo-Wop and Beatles records, as well as Broadway cast albums, creating early demos on a 4-track recording system she received as a Bat Mitzvah present. During Junior High school, Sage gained admission to the School of American Ballet. Sage attended Stanford University, earning a degree in Drama.

Later, she was in the Actors Studio MFA program. Her performance in their New York Talent Search won Sage a place on the [http://www.lilithfair.com/artists/index.html Village Stage] of the 1997 Lilith Fair. The word theatrical has been used to describe Sage's sound. Judy Collins calls Sage's music a great gift of incredible beauty, while legendary rock producer Tony Visconti has described her as "incredibly talented. In early 2005, Sage's "Sacrifice" won in The 4th Annual Independent Music Awards for Best Folk/Singer-Songwriter Song.
