Local bands at Tree

Christmas kicks off this Friday (December 16) with an unmissable party at Aberdeen’s Lemon Tree with an eclectic mix of Scottish bands from local company Bedford Records.

Following their sell-out Christmas show last year, the 8pm to 1am gig will showcase some of the independent record label’s artists for a fantastic night of original music. There will be a live set from IndianRedLopez as well as a welcome return to the live scene for The Deportees.

In addition, there will be local rockers Velvet Audio, distinguished songwriters Stanley and The Maydays who will be making their first trip up North following on the back of a successful UK tour. Tickets (£6) are available online at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office.
