We missed a round of gig picks last week because of holidays (ours, not bands playing in Brighton), but we’re back this week. The weather is getting warm enough that you can’t use it as an excuse for not leaving the house any more, so here’s what we recommend when you do get out.
On Thursday night Amy Hill – who hosts the long running Brighton Folk night – launches her album Place of Mind at the Brunswick. Support comes from Jacko Hooper, which should be good.
Friday night see’s the latest Brighton Rocks night at Sticky Mike’s headlined by Devil in Detail. We’re going to be heading out of Brighton to the Con Club in Lewes where Clowns are playing.
Saturday night’s big gig is Pere Ubu at the Haunt, put on by Melting Vinyl. While they might not be thought of as a local band, their legendary lynchpin David Thomas is a Brightonian these days, so the date on their tour to support new album The Lady From Shanghai is something of a homecoming.
