October Gig Previews

October already. How time flies. We’re not quite as prompt as we would have liked with this month’s gig previews post – if we were we might have tipped the Platform B FM licence launch at the Green Door Store last night. Instead though we’ll kick off with a gig that’s been mentioned before tomorrow night.

Untitled (12)sMatters by Fröst came out last Friday and was named Resident’s album of the day . They’ve also made the launch gig their gig of the week too, so you don’t have to just take our word for it. It takes place at the Prince Albert, with support from Spill Gold.

There’s another album launch taking place next Wednesday too. The Haunt sees the return of 12 Stone Toddler and marks the release of their new album Idiolalia.

Our next tip takes place on 12th October at Brighton Electric. According to what we’ve read, there will be “a FREE induction course presented by myself – special guest speaker & founder of the Temple of B, Ronald K. Moiste. Ronald will be promoting a radical new book: Skin and Bone, a chronicle of his journey into finding B and how she helped me find myself and de-calcify my pineal gland (and liver)”. What we believe is actually taking place is the launch party for Sking & Bone, the new single from Libra Libra, with support from Inwards and Battery Operated Orchestra, although there’s only one way to find out.

One of the big releases last month was Black Honey‘s debut album. They head off on tour across the UK and Europe, playing Concorde 2 on Sun 14th October.

Wild Cat Strike‘s debut album comes out this Friday on Small Pond, but they’re waiting until Monday 15th October for the launch, which will take place at Pop Up Brighton (down near the i360). Support comes from Good Guy Clarence, I Feel Fine and Elliot Tatler.

Here’s another – Lazybones launch their new single Heart Beat Like A Drum at Green Door Store on Wednesday 17th October. Also on the bill are Sit Down, Big and the Fat and Swoon.

Finally, the last we’ve got to mention is Our Girl, who are spending most of October on tour. They play a hometown gig at The Haunt on Friday 26th with Breathe Panel supporting.

Kitfest gallery – Fujiya & Miyagi, Alice Russell & TM Juke, The Miserable Rich and Gloria Cycles

Yesterday a charity concert was held at St George’s Church in Kemptown for the Kit Tarka Foundation, MC’ed by David Shrigley, with Fujiya & Miyagi and Alice Russell & TM Juke at the top of the bill, and Gloria Cycles and The Miserable Rich reforming especially for the event. The Kit Tarka Foundation was set up around a year ago following the tragic early death of The Miserable Rich lead singer James de Maplequet’s baby son, and the evening wasn’t without it’s emotional moments, but the evening was a celebration for what would have been Kit’s first birthday. Our words can’t do the event justice, but hopefully our pictures can go some way there. Click through for larger versions:

 

Brighton Rocks #19 :Yumi & The Weather

Untitled (7)ees

What’s the best thing about Brighton?
Brighton would not be what it is without the people… but love the starlings flying about by West Pier, also sitting in Pavilion Gardens with friends on a sunny day. I also love the buildings in Brighton and the graffiti.

Who are the your favourite local bands?
I’d say at the moment: Knightstown, Slugabed, Wild Cat Strike and Bobbie Johnson.

What’s the best venue?
Very hard to narrow it down. I really like Sticky Mikes cause it’s like a bass cave and great for bands and electronic music – but have also seen some amazing international acts at Rose Hill, and you can’t miss out Concorde 2 and The Dome. Some great shows have been seen there.

What’s the best rehearsal space / studio?
We usually switch it up between Studio 95, Small Pond and Brighton Electric, but ultimately, Studio 95 – as just the one room which we know well and the assistant manager is a Cat called Ponyo who steals and eats cigarette filters.

What’s the best club?
Green Door, Casablanca, and The Haunt are great for a boogie.

What’s the best record shop?
Used to love browsing at Borderline but now it would have to be Rarekind or Resident.

Where’s the best places to eat?
Planet India, Giggling Squid, Hells Kitchen for the best baguette.

What’s the best pub?
Too hard. Variety is the spice of life. For food – Saint James’. Black Dove is great and Lion and Lobster is really nice layout and garden.

Who’s your favourite Brighton celebrity?
My Auntie Alexia Lazou. A photo of her dressed as a Victorian was on some of the Brighton buses.

When was the last time you had any Brighton Rock?
Too long ago, I think I am overdue.

Yumi & The Weather’s self titled debut EP comes out this Friday on MIOHMI records
