Music Matters is an ongoing project that focuses on some inspirational music brought to you in the form of short animated films by brilliant animators from across the UK. The films - about artists including Nick Cave, Sigur Ros and John Martyn - reveal the stories behind the music: the passion, devotion, trials and tribulations that have forged music's lasting legacy. The dozen and more films focus on music that can't be ignored, music that matters.

Let music do the talking

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 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. But be quick - very few tickets left -
