OK, so we’re several days into April before posting our April gig previews, but I’m sure you’ve all been eating chocolate eggs (and reading the comeback Fruity Water Brighton Rocks post) to be thinking about going to gigs. But the Easter holidays are over, so let’s crack on (egg pun intended)
Tomorrow night there’s a charity gig called Rock for Refugees on at the Prince Albert. Headlined by grasshopper alongside Red Deer People and M Butterfly, and is all in aid of the charity Hope For Refugees UK.
Next week we’re looking forward to catching Penelope Isles, who play the Green Door Store on Wednesday (11th). The band kicked off their tour last week and are on the road all month, supporting Lost Horizons on their tour from the 19th (more of which below).
Then on the Friday night (13th) Mudlow launch Waiting for the Tide To Rise at the Prince Albert. The album is a retrospective of the band’s career to date, and their first to come out on vinyl. Support on the night comes from Miraculous Mule, and there’s an afterparty later on at the Great Eastern.
Mudlow aren’t the only band launching their new album that weekend. Down at the Haunt on Saturday night Demob Happy play the Brighton leg of their tour to launch their new record Holy Doom. Valeras and Heirloom are also on the bill.
I mentioned Lost Horizons earlier, who are heading off on tour supported by Penelope Isles. Before they hit the road, Lost Horizons are playing a hometown gig at the Komedia on Wednesday the 18th, supported by Crayola Lectern (who is also part of the Lost Horizons band)
The last gig we want to mention is Spectrum‘s big all day festival at the Dome on 21st April to celebrate Record Star Day. The big names at the top of the bill are Dark Horses and Normanton Street but there are at least fourteen names on the line up with more to be added.
