This week’s Alive & Amplified’s Edinburgh Gig of the Week is We Were Promised Jetpacks at The Caves on Friday night.
Personally this will be one of the gigs of the year for me as one of my favourite bands play in an awesome venue in my hometown. I have seen We Were Promised Jetpacks in a range of venues from the sold out show at The Liquid Rooms to the tiny underground basement that was Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar in Brighton. However the gig that really made me fall in love with this band was the first Haddow Fest when they played in the old Bongo Club, what a night that was.
Jetpacks are in the middle of a UK Tour, which included shows in Aberdeen tonight (17th) and Dundee tomorrow (18th). They will be heading off to Europe next week and then onto the States, where they have gathered a massive fan base, regularly playing sold out shows coast to coast.
It’s all coinciding with the release of their 3rd album “Unravelling” which will be released in the UK on Monday 4th October. You can pre-order the album here.
Here is a little taster of few of the track that have been released in the last couple of months.
And a couple of classics…
Support on the night (and the Aberdeen and Dundee shows) comes from Edinburgh’s Man Of Moon.
As far as I am aware tickets for this one are completely sold out however I have seen a few people who can longer attend selling their tickets on Facebook and Twitter, so if you want to go please check.
