.:: Select Calendar of Indie, Post-Punk, Electro, New Wave, Artschool, Burlesque and PSItrance Clubs. Most of the INDIE clubs always feature a band or two and are good value. Edinburgh indie nights are generally solid weekly and monthly events and gigs and I am happy to give 'THE EGG' at ECA top billing for musical quality, friendliness, lack of hassle, cheap booze, ambience, value for money, door policy.
:: Every Sat :: The Egg :: which is also GOTH SAFE and friendly
Girls from Vogue, boys from bands, the rest from trainspotting, dancing like the Yoshiwara in metropolis :: music policy starts in the 60's and is at the links. Goth friendly, in fact at least 4 are there! If you like 'Planet Earth' or GOGO, you will love, 'The Egg'
