Everyone is playing for free for Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre’s & Myeloma UK. MC Sonny, died in October 2005, resident at Manga and good friend to a lot of people in the Edinburgh music scene – it’s a great tribute to his memory. It’s a massive showcase of local talent.

Having to work twice as hard when everyone else is out. I never seem to have enough money to do all the things I want to.
