Jam the Box extends the party again this month for our 3rd '...goes live' event! 5 bands from 7-11, then Jam the Box resident DJs 11-3, spinning the best in underground Disco, House, Electrofunk and Techno!

Nevada Base - we are proud to bring Glasgow's Nevada Base to the capital for the first time. If it's very danceable Electro Pop and heavy Synth Beats that your craving then these lads will give you a plenty to get your teeth into. Creating a perfect blend of Electronica and Rock, the floor is sure to be rammed come November 7th.

The Nature Boys - since their formation last year, they have already become a must see act on the Edinburgh live circuit. With punk sesiblilities and some rough edges, they have a frantic set list that comes together with nods to the likes of the Buzzcocks and the Ramones in their own irrepressible style. They lack some of the pretension which surrounds a lot of bands these days and are all the more refreshing for it.

Green Man Running - New comers to the live scene Green Man Running are currently causing a stir amongst music fans in the capital, so it was only right that we bring them to Jam the Box. Mixing the various musical influences of each band member to create down right dirty beats and haunting electro acoustic melodies, the three piece will be hoping to continue to win over the gig going public.

The Electric Ghosts - Edinburgh Folk Rockers The Electric Ghosts describe their sound as "Country Played faster then slowed down so you can hear the mistakes." These lads have been hard at work on the Edinburgh live scene for some time, but if you haven't been lucky enough to catch them, you can judge for yourself when they arrive on the Jam the Box stage this month.

Kerrie Lynch - We couldn't have asked for a better start to the evening as Kerrie brings her cool acoustic sound to Jam the Box. Laid back and stylish, Kerrie has been slowly building a reputation around the city and beyond. Be sure to get in early to see what all the fuss is about!

This month the bar is hosted by new music blog “Melange.FM”. It’s co-run by Danny Melange and James Thomas (JTB) and features a monthly mix of music from all genres, the idea of the blog is to promote music within a 2 hour show that will feature a classic album section, a record label feature and a guest mix from DJ’s we like. As well as the monthly shows there are regular posts of shorter feature shows that focus around an album or record label and there will also occasionally be random posts of single tracks or links to music related stuff, this weeks post is a feature on Stones Throw Records to coincide with the release of Mayer Hawthorne - A Strange Arrangement. You can check it at www.melange.fm

See you there!
