MacMuse set for Dumfries gig
Muse fans are in for a treat as tribute band MacMuse venture to Dumfries for the first time.
The band formed in 2017 and are building a fanbase of ‘Musers’ and people who just like good songs and rock music played well, from a unique band that defy genre.
Screaming falsettos, soaring guitars, monstrous bass and drums, delicate keyboard textures, accompanied by an impressive light and sound show deliver a space-rock Muse experience definitely worth experiencing.
Having played all over Scotland, this will be the band’s first visit to Dumfries.
Douglas McGarrie of MacMuse told Small Town Sounds, “We’re really excited to be playing the Venue in Dumfries this weekend, and sharing our love of Muse with whoever can make it along on Saturday. We are all big fans of the band and wanted to create a Scottish-based Muse tribute since there didn’t seem to be any doing the rounds in Scotland. These days Muse are such a big stadium and festival band and it is increasingly hard to see them in more intimate settings and they haven’t actually haven’t played in Scotland since 2016 with no immediate plans for this year. Our show is based on creating a great Muse experience, the songs, the lights, the overall energy of a Muse live performance.
“Since forming last year we are getting around a few of the main Scotland tribute venues, and for Saturday’s show are grateful to local band Deadman’s Stand for providing the support for the evening and the Venue for putting us on. Last year we had a mention on the Annie Mac Radio One show during an interview with Muse, and Matt and Dom said they’d come and see one of our shows, so you never know, they might turn up in the Venue!”
Tickets are priced at £7 and are available at Barnstorm Records in Dumfries, or online at the MacMuse Big Cartel page. Doors open at 8pm, with the show starting at 8.30pm. You can check out MacMuse’s Facebook Page, and join the Facebook event.
