This weekend saw the return of the excellent Strange Behaviours Festival at the Tolbooth in Stirling. The festival features several up and coming musical acts playing across three intimate stage set-ups in the Auditorium, Gallery and Attic within the Tolbooth. There was also an area set aside in the Gallery for some pop-up stalls selling cool merchandise and providing craft beer! Here are some of my photos below from over the weekend. Also, if you click the name of each band, it’ll take you to their websites if you’d like to find out more about them.
Failed at Sea kicking off the festival on the Friday.
Cameron Roxburgh providing a fascinating acoustic set in the Gallery accompanied by a double bass.
A mix of experimental electronica from Le Thug.
We Are Animals playing in the Attic. Finishing their set with a great cover of Neil Young’s Rocking in the Free World.
Bella and the Bear playing a secret set in the bar. Unfortunately, I only caught the last couple of songs and wish I heard more so will have to get along to a future gig as I was impressed with their music.
A Sudden Burst of Colour tearing it up in the Auditorium.
My Machines blending music and art. Really clever set-up with the artwork being projected on to a wall as it was being painted.
Have enjoyed listening to the The Van T’s recent Laguna Babe EP and have been meaning to get to one of their gigs for a while, so was glad to hear them live for the first time last night. Great energy and sound!
Can see a bright future ahead for Man of Moon. Outstanding!
Siobhan Wilson in a packed out Attic where the crowd were so attentive and quiet that no one dared make a sound as Siobhan was singing. Voice of an angel.
Admiral Fallow completing a Friday night full of eclectic musical greatness and part 1 of the Strange Behaviours festival. The band are now cementing themselves among the greats of Scottish music with three albums now under their belt and an ever growing fanbase. The band performed an encore of an accappella Four Bulbs which was breath taking!
The second night started with a fizzy explosion of good music from Soft Drinks Club.
Kieran Hughes playing a few acoustic tunes in the Gallery.
Things were lively in the Attic with everyone rocking out to Crashing Jets
Good music in the Auditorium from The Winter Tradition.
Ultrademon – If you get the chance, go and hear/see this band! Full of energy and noise and it’s not often you see a guitarist riding a skateboard through the crowd!
Super Inuit multi tasking with a pint while playing some songs in the Gallery.
Another band with a food related name in Carbs. Tasty tunes! Their album also comes in a unique and cool mini pizza box package!
Civil Elegies cranking the noise up in the Attic.
A great weekend of diverse music catering for all tastes at the Strange Behaviours festival closing with Outblinker and their amazing lit up disco ball! A band definitely worth checking out live!
