Hootananny launch a new night for lovers of loud music, Bring the Noise.


Each  night will feature a headline band with support act and DJ sets from special guests playing the likes of Queen of the Stone Age, Metallica, Placebo and Weezer.

The debut night (on the 7th of August) will see Paisley based Punk rockers, Carnivores. Indeed, “How could you hate a band that wrote a song called Harrison Fjord?!” asks Q Magazine in a recent feature on talent north of the border. The band released album ‘You DIsgust Me’ earlier in the year and since forming they have played  T in the Park, Belladrum and a crowd surfing enducing set at goNORTH this year.

This will be quickly followed up (on the 14th of August) by Atlas : Empire who are currently promoting EP ‘Somonus’, which showcases their “ mixture of forward-thinking alt.rock, ambient electronica and energetic post-hardcore.” Ravechild commented, of the bands recent gig that they are “all about creating massive walls of post-hardcore noise.” Perfect for a Bring the Noise night then !

Doors 8.00 pm with the events finishing round 11 pm (with it being a school night!).

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
