Top band at Tol­booth

Stirling Observer - - REVIEWS - Staff re­porter

The Tol­booth’s monthly indie/alt/ other night Strange Be­hav­iours is back to­mor­row (Satur­day) with an­other bou­tique mini-fes­ti­val, fea­tur­ing the best indie and al­ter­na­tive artists from across the Forth Valley.

The Strange Be­hav­iours an­nual fes­ti­val has been run­ning in ever-evolv­ing for­mats since 2015, stag­ing artists through­out the Tol­booth’s many rooms, pair­ing up lo­cal and wider Scot­tish artists with the build­ing’s unique spa­ces to cre­ate an un­par­al­leled “up-close­and-in­ter­est­ing” at­mos­phere, ex­pe­ri­enc­ing acts in a vis­ceral and real way.

This year, the Win­ter Party for­mat re­turns, and is a cel­e­bra­tion of all the ex­cel­lent acts on our doorstep, with a line-up for­ti­fied with choice bands and solo per­form­ers from across the area.

Line-up is as fol­lows: The Nick­a­jack Men Amer­i­cana-soaked an­themic indie rock; Live To Do - pair­ing punk, pro­gres­sive and clas­sic indie in­flu­ences into am­bi­tious, sprawl­ing, heart-felt songs; Walt Disco - 80s gui­tar pop a la Talking Heads, Devo, The Smiths; Joseph Hewer - ex­cit­ing emerg­ing singer-song­writer; Sulka - fuzzy garage rock; De­cem­ber ‘91 - an­tifolk en­gag­ing with raw lyri­cism; Kieran Hughes - singer-song­writer with gypsy-jazz lean­ings; C R P N T R - ac­ro­batic hip hop.

Tick­ets £8 ad­vance (£10 on the door) avail­able from cul­ture­stir­ling.org/tol­booth or 01786 274000.
