Now what are you doing this weekend? In particular, Saturday? Ten Tracks is the highly acclaimed 'new music download portal', an innovative website and project that equally provides for the music-maker. Amongst other things it is an organic digital 'platform for the marketing and retail of music which responds to online music listening culture in a way that has not been achieved to date by the major music industry' and wahey - it's Scottish!
As well as putting on gigs, the people behind it have been creating and collaborating with exciting music related multimedia and art events, supporting quality 'up and coming' musicians alike while also welcoming the more established. For more details on Ten Tracks and a bounty of top class tracks for cheaper than chips, head to http://www.tentracks.co.uk Otherwise, if you're simply looking for some great live music this weekend, in an alternative venue of clandestine atmosphere and projected visual ecstasy, then come on down - free DVD of the night included in your £10 for ten great bands.
