It’s totally brilliant that top Edinburgh rock ‘n’ rollers Lord Rochester will be playing at our Friday 16 May benefit gig. Each of our Pleasance concerts will have a hot and happening band playing in the Cabaret Bar before the Theatre acts take to the stage, so make sure you come before 8pm to catch them. Here’s what Siberian Tim (as he is known to his band mates) says about appearing at the gig:
“We are delighted to offer our support to the Soundhouse Project. Lord Rochester is a Rock’n’Roll band operating in the DIY spirit of Rock’n’Roll and we salute Douglas and Jane-Ann’s DIY approach to live music facilitation.
“If the city doesn’t have a suitable venue – don’t sit back and complain or wait for someone else to do it; make one yourself…in your own living room. And now they are taking their vision further to create a real venue run by and for musicians. An inspiration to us all.”
Tim Matthew, Lord Rochester
