Casper and Co, 56 Degrees North and The Snow Brigade to Name Just a Few

Another busy weekend for live music in Renfrewshire, and a chance to see some bands we’ve not previously mentioned on the Renfrewshire Pubs website, including Casper & Co, 56 Degrees North and The Snow Brigade.

After last weeks busy schedule which included the V-Factor Final (congratulations to the winner!), we’re pleased to say this week is just as busy.

Several bands, playing several pubs across several locations including Johnstone, Renfrew, Paisley and Bridge of Weir.

Starting off tonight you can find Casper and Co over at Callums Bar in Johnstone and, if you miss them, you can see them on Saturday at the ever popular Bankhouse in Paisley. More of the Casper and Co Renfrewshire dates will be posted soon, but in the meantime, find out more about them on the Casper and Co. website.

Elsewhere, Republic of Soul can be found playing over at Hamishes Hoose in Paisley. Always a busy night over at Hamishes Hoose, so if you’re going to be in town, pop in.

56 Degrees North, another band we’ve not mentioned before on the Renfrewshire Pubs website, will be playing Harrys Bar in Renfrew. We’ll find out if they have any more dates and add them to the website.

Finally, heading into Bridge of Weir, you’ll find The Snow Brigade playing at The Weir. A popular pub in Bridge of Weir, this is sure to be another good night at The Weir.

As ever, if you’ve attended any of the events mentioned on Renfrewshire pubs, send in your comments and photos and we’ll post them on our Facebook page. Email us!

Havock Road, V-Factor, 6 Nations and Comedy … another busy weekend in Renfrewshire Pubs

Each week seems to get busier and busier. With more contributions and information being sent our way from Pubs, bars and Inns, we can begin to send out more details updates on what’s available for everyone this weekend, if you fancy something a little different.

And this weekend definitely has variety!

Friday 11th February 2011:
It’s round 2 of the Viscount (Renfrew) V-Factor competition. Yes, think X-factor, but it’s in the Viscount Bar. Running every Friday through February and March and a final at the end of March, with big money prizes, there is no entry fee. Starts at 8:30pm, so get along for a sing song. Follow the Viscount on Facebook to keep up to date.

It’s also Pub Quiz night over at The Houston Inn, Houston. A relaxed evening with some brain teasers.

Saturday 12th February 2011:
Scotland host Wales in the RBS 6 Nations 2011. Let’s hope Scotland can build on last weeks performance. If you want to watch it, head over to the Howwood Inn or The Wee Howff, who’ve both confirmed they are showing 6 Nations games on TV. If you know other pubs showing the games, let us know.

Your live music this Saturday can be found at The Brown Bull, Lochwinnoch. Havock Road have been invited in to play and the evening kicks off at 9:30pm. Get along and support them!

If Poker is more you’re thing, then the regular MTT Poker League is on at the Station Bar (Paisley) at 2:30pm.

Sunday 13th February 2011:
The highlight of Sunday, apart from you all being out buying gifts for your Valentine (obviously!), has to be the Comedy Night over at Brodies Farmhouse, Houston. 4 great comedy acts compered by Raymond Mearns. Starts at 8:30pm and tickets are £5.

Alternatively, the weekly pub quiz is on at 9pm over at Harrys Bar, Renfrew or you can join in with more Poker at the Wallace Tavern (Elderslie), Hazel Arms (Johnstone) or Bankhouse (Paisley).

As always, please contact each Pub, Bar and Inn prior to attending just to make sure each event is definitely on. We try our best to be accurate but some times / dates may change from time to time.

A weekend of Rock n Roll and Brain Testing

For those who haven’t heard them play before, GrooveFellas are described as delivering a selection of Loud, Dirty, Mean, Raw and Vicious Rock ‘n’ Roll. With a description like that, why wouldn’t you go to see them!

We’ve had a couple of Gigs listed for the GrooveFellas guys and after chatting to them, we’re hoping to provide detail on more gigs in the near future. This weekend they are playing The Howwood Inn, Howwood … so get along and support them.

If you can’t make it along, don’t worry. They’ll also be playing The Trust Inn, Kilbarchan in March.

Not really in the mood for Rock n Roll? Then why not try one of the Pub Quiz nights that are going on this weekend. We’re still collecting information on more locations, but can tell you on good knowledge that there is a Pub Quiz in the Houston Inn tonight, and another in Harrys Bar, Renfrew, on Sunday night.

We’re also collecting information on a number of other events such as Poker, Darts, Psychic nights and karaoke nights, so if anyone knows of any coming up in Renfrewshire, that we don’t have listed on Facebook or in our Renfrewshire Events pages, drop us an email and let us know.
