Our podcast is recorded at Embassy Gallery in Edinburgh:
The Grind is 2 years old today! What started off as a means of staving off the depression of the service industry has grown into something I could never have imagined.
Through The Grind I've had the privilege of publishing some of Scotland's most exciting writers and artists, stage amazing events, and meet some of the most talented people I've ever encountered, not to mention the friends I've made along the way.
It has reached the point where people I have never met before have heard of The Grind and enjoy what we do. That just blows my mind. The Grind has had a tangible, positive impact on people's lives and for that I am eternally grateful.
We're not done yet, though. We have plans for the future that dwarf anything we've done up until this point. I cannot thank you all enough for supporting us and making all of this possible. Every single person who has come to an event, downloaded an issue, or even just told a friend about that weird journal thing that swears all the time. You've all made The Grind what it is. Thank you.
The Grind never sleeps, The Grind never rests. The Grind is eternal.
Fuck The Grind
It is our sad and unwelcome duty to inform everyone that END OF DAYS has been cancelled. We have not taken this step lightly and follows irreconcilable issues with our venue for the show.
Tickets will be refunded in the coming days. We'd like to thank our wonderful acts for offering their time and talents to our cause and hope that we can work with them all again in the future. We are deeply sorry to do this.
In happier news, our show with [Untitled] is still storming ahead and promises to be a fantastic evening. If anyone who currently has tickets for END OF DAYS would like to switch theirs for a ticket to Untitled Six Live please let us know.
Our sincere apologies again. We will return.
Fuck The Grind.
We are absolutely delighted to announce that End of Days will be held in the Biscuit Factory in Edinburgh. It's a wonderfully unique space that seems like it was made for this kind of show. This is not an event to be missed.
Get your tickets here.
END OF DAYS is a unique dystopian audio/visual experience in a secret location in the heart of Edinburgh. (It is easy to find and very accessible).
We can promise you that you will never, ever attend an event like this in this location again.
Tickets are selling quickly and are EXTREMELY limited. Don't miss your chance to see:
Loud Poets - some of the finest slam poets in Scotland performing their engaging and exciting poetry.
Texture - aka Bram E Gieben, 2015 Scottish Slam Champion, will be playing a set of his unique electronic music.
MacGillivray - just back from her tour of the US and Australia, MacGillivray will be playing her unique, ethereal music in a fitting atmosphere.
The Girobabies - after headling the Clutha Trust show at the Barrowlands last year, their latest album, Who Took Utopia?, has been met with critical acclaim across the board. They'll be playing a rare intimate acoustic set.
All proceeds from the show will be donated to food banks in time for Christmas.
ALL IS GOOD

Our next food bank fundraiser is going to be an immersive dystopian experience in Edinburgh on the 2nd of December. However, our venue for END OF DAYS has been usurped by the Scottish Conservative Party. Bargain Spot, the popular arts space in central Edinburgh, will shortly become the Scottish Conservative Party's fundraising headquarters.
This will not deter us from holding our food bank fundraiser, however. The show will now be held in a SECRET LOCATION in Edinburgh that will be revealed to ticketholders the night before the show. It is a convenient and central location.
Purchasing your ticket in advance is ESSENTIAL. Have faith in us and know that you will not want to miss this incredibly unique opportunity.
