Flares n Seagulls #AdventCalendar : Day 24

And so we come t0 Day 24 – Christmas Eve – and what better choice for Xmas than The Xcerts. Originally from Aberdeen, they’re now based much further south in the UK but they make a point of being back in Aberdeen around New Year. They’ll be playing a free (first come first served) acoustic set in Bridge Street Social on the 30th December.

Have a Fantastic Christmas and a Very Merry New Year from all at Flares n Seagulls. We’ll see you in 2017.

Flares n Seagulls #AdventCalendar : Day 23

If you’ve never come across our yellow-clad Day 23 pick, then you really need to remedy this. Colonel Mustard & the Dijon 5 are probably one of the best festival bands you’ll come across.

Flares n Seagulls #AdventCalendar : Day 21

Day 21. This year we said goodbye to Hector Bizerk, however, Louie is never one to rest on his laurels and so Louie & the Lochbacks came into existence; a mashup of Louie, Be Charlotte & Pronto Mama, seen here at the last ever Brew at the Bog.

Flares n Seagulls #AdventCalendar : Day 20

Day 20 and we’ve picked Gun. Yep, they’re still going and as banging as they ever were –  packing out venues and gathering new fans along the way. Word Up!

Flares n Seagulls #AdventCalendar : Day 19

For Day 19, we bring you Ricky Warwick & the Fighting Hearts. SB caught them when they supported Stiff Little Fingers earlier in the year, and said it was good to see Ricky with his Fighting Hearts after already seeing him in The Almighty, Thin Lizzy and Black Star Riders.
