Rock/Dance Music 08/05/09

Sons & Daughters

Their particular brand of music isn't about to have clubbers of the non-indie variety throwing too many shapes on the dancefloor, but Scottish two guys/two girls combo Sons & Daughters (pictured) have enough fans of their country/folk/rock-style songs, reminiscent of a riot grrl version of the B52s or the angular punkabilly sound of The Cramps, and tinged with the lyrical brilliance of Leonard Cohen, to secure a place at the top of the bill at tonight's CQAF gig in Custom House Square.

With an eight-year-long career and three albums behind them, Sons & Daughters have worked alongside some of Scotland's art-rock royalty, including Franz Ferdinand and Edwyn Collins, as well as Suede's Bernard Butler, who produced their last album, The Gift.

The Caledonian theme continues with Selkirk's best known indie rockers Frightened Rabbit appearing at this evening's show, with Belfast-based 12-piece folksters Lowly Knights.

The event is curated by Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody, who will be making a DJ appearance behind the decks alongside band mate Tom Simpson and Belle & Sebastian's Richard Colburn. Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets are £8.
