Support Your Local Girl Gang at Sticky Mikes Frog Bar

Last night we went along to the new Support Your Local Girl Gang night at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar. The night has been started up by local promoters Rixson Music after reading about how under represented women are on bills across gigs and festivals in the UK. We got there a little too late to see opener Holly Deanna, but we did see Anna Leigh Stainton, IVI and Stranger Girl, all of whom are names to keep your eyes out for – we’ve had a couple of IVI’s tracks on the blog over the last year, and will no doubt be featuring the others in due course. Here’s our pics, as always, click to view large:

Green Door Store 7th Birthday

Happy Birthday Green Door Store! Yesterday our favourite venue in town invited us along to their birthday gig. As we mentioned in our January gig preview post there were a couple of Brighton bands on the bill – Guru and Desire – so we pointed our lens at them and you can see the pics below.

Happy New Year! Our first New Music post of the year is a bit of a catch up, since we put these on hold in December while we were posting our end of year roundup. It’s been so long since our last post that the band we’re most excited about blogging has put out two new tracks. The Go! Team posted up their latest track All The Way Live just yesterday:

And Mayday went up right at the very end of November. If you haven’t got a ticket to their gig at The Haunt on 11th February yet, then move fast because the dates for the whole tour are selling out all over the place:

Black Biro have a new track, The Artic Windows of Sound, posted up in the wilderness period between Christmas and New Year:

We rather like this new track from Such Small Hands. You is minimal, intricate vocal electronica – just we need to get us through the long winter nights. There’s a full EP promised, which we’ll keep you updated on as we hear more:

Jumanji fell foul of sending us details of their new single in the middle of December. Apologies for not posting it up then guys, but as I mentioned we were busy then, and I’m sure people won’t be so distracted by Christmas parties if I post it now:

 
Kai-A‘s new EP has apparently been three years in the making, but has already grabbed the attention of Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra. Here’s Five 45 AM, from ‘w You : The Prelude Tapes:

Finally, we have Blood and Moonlight by Beatastic, which is the first single to be taken from their forthcoming album 40 Moons Project:
