100-Word Fringe: “The Horne Section” at Assembly George Square

Snuck into The Horne Section at the last minute and was pleasantly surprised by a six-piece band that have personality as well as talent. After a musically inspired opening salvo lead by Alex Horne, they handed things over to Milton Jones, the hand-standing talents of Bang Bang Circus and poet Tim Key. Jones was quickfire and made good use of the band, Bang Bang were consummate (and bendy) professionals, and Key got through by the skin of his teeth, relying on a nervous demeanour and a last-minute crowd surf to save his lack of preparation. Some injuries, but solid fun.

The Horne Section is performing at Assembly George Square Dans Paleis until August 27th.

Tickets: £12
