Some of Edinburgh’s finest unsigned talent will be performing this Saturday, 24th January at the Red Stripe showcase at Cabaret Voltaire.

Bands The Debuts, The Fusiliers and Modus as well as singer-songwriter Jennifer Concannon have been confirmed to play at the popular music venue from 7pm until 10pm with free entry for all.

Four piece Edinburgh band, The Debuts are becoming one of the most promising young bands around with their energetic live shows and their synth led indie-rock anthems.

"Brutal Pop" outfit The Fusiliers were recently voted artist of the week by listeners of XFM Scotland and have had extensive radio airplay in the UK and USA.

Five piece combo Modus have a strong following in the UK, US and Japan and are currently receiving regular airplay on XFM and BBC Radio 6

The acts are four of the 150 selected to play at 25 regional gigs across the country, with other bands playing in Scottish cities Glasgow and Aberdeen, as well as across England and Wales.

The 20 best bands that are successful in pleasing the crowds and pundits will be considered by a board of industry specialist and music journalists. The final four will play at the Kentish Town Forum in London in May where the winner will be decided by a panel.
