Indie singer-songwriter Nick Shane is headlining a three-band bill at Kings Live Lounge on Saturday, August 20.

It’s one of several gigs lined up at the venue, which is finding its footing again after a two-year shutdown caused by the pandemic.

And music fans have urged locals to support the concerts – and the venue – to help grow Lang Toun’s live entertainment scene.

His latest single “Stranger Times” features Ally McErlaine of Scottish rock band Texas.

The bands, with the support of management and fans including Laura McIntosh, have been busy promoting the performance on social media.

She explained: “I’m tired of hearing people say there’s nothing going on in Kirkcaldy or even Fife and when events are happening attendance can be poor – but I think that’s because people really don’t know what is up.

“I really want that to change for the good of the community, the venues and the artists.

“We wanted this performance to be affordable for people in times of rising cost of living and give them a good night out in tough times.

“The acts play for the love of music and we really wanted this to be something for the people and the community.

“There are still people I speak to who don’t know about the Kings Live Lounge in Kirkcaldy, so we wanted to put the venue name there as well.”

The Live Lounge at 9 Esplanade has a solid concert schedule over the next few months.

Acclaimed East Neuk musician and songwriter James Yorkston takes the stage on Thursday 18th August with Nina Perrson and the Second Hand Orchestra – arguably the biggest name to have performed at the Kirkcaldy venue to date – followed by a night out of the northern soul on August 26 .
