LYG's Friday Night Speakeasy with Franz Nicolay, Chris T-T, Dave Hughes
"Bloggers putting on gigs? It'll never catch on..." - JIM CONNICK.

Maybe not - but I'm determined to give it a go anyway. You should come. Not just because I'll be out a fair bit of money if you don't, but also because it's going to be pretty brilliant.

LAST YEAR'S GIRL'S FRIDAY NIGHT SPEAKEASY*
The Old Hairdresser's, Renfield Lane (opp. Stereo), Glasgow
Friday 2nd December 2011, 8pm

Franz Nicolay has the face of a villain, but the heart of a vaudevillian. He specialises in moustaches, raconteuring and the sort of antiquated instruments such as banjo, accordion and musical saw it's pretty awkward to get through customs. He has played with a few bands you may have heard of (The Hold Steady, Against Me!, Guignol, The World/Inferno Friendship Society), and released two albums of solo material that are even better. If you want to see him make a third one, you could contribute to his Kickstarter pledge drive. He feels as weird about it as you do.

Brighton-based Chris T-T tried to be a political songwriter, but Billy Bragg said he didn't exist so he went back to writing about bunny rabbits instead. Sorry, what? That was a song about communism, you say? You might have seen him set the works of AA Milne to music at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, or joined in one of his acts of civil disobedience through the use of social media (#IAmSpartacus). He is currently working on his eighth album of original material.

Dave Hughes plays folk music without the scarves, handclaps or tambourines. Before buying a car he pretty much invented the Megabus tour, which is the only explanation for that time he ended up playing to a hen party in Birmingham He does not sound like Ed Sheeran, and does not get offended if you describe his performance as "ramshackle" with or without his Renegade Folk Punk Band. His latest release is the six-track Despite the Blackout EP, on Corporate Records.

The Old Hairdressers is a small independent arts centre run by the same people who run Stereo, situated across from its big sister venue on Renfield Lane. It doesn't like to make a habit of hosting musical events, but some people can be pretty persuasive. And it turns out they're just as excited about this one as we are.

Last Year's Girl is a legal journalist by day and a superstar music blogger by night. She's been famous on the internet since 1999; longevity she puts down to a combination of cake, Springsteen, cheesy iPhoneography and talking about intimate waxing in too much detail.
