New Brighton Music

I’m sure that when I looked at the end of last week about how much I would have to post about in our new music post this week things were looking a bit sparse, but it seems that actually we’ve got plenty, starting off with a band who’ve just been announced for the Reading / Leeds festival line up…

August Gig Preview

We’ve been a bit slow off the mark getting our August gig preview together, but August is actually a pretty quiet month for the local music scene (Let’s not let the fact that Britney and Chic played as part of Pride this weekend get in the way of things – it’s incredible that they played but hardly representative of what happening the rest of the month).

21369032_1560882130635579_931757122990434948_oThe big gig to mention this month is David Gedge’s At The Edge of The Sea mini-festival which takes place over two days at the Concorde 2. Both his bands always play every year and this time around there’s a 30th anniversary performance of Tommy by The Wedding Present on Friday 10th August as well as a headline set by them on the following night too. Cinerama play on Saturday afternoon at 3.30pm. The rest of the bill looks pretty tasty too (with a bit more Brighton representation in there) – Desperate Journalist, Terry de Castro, Young Romance, Helen And The Horns, Salad, The Catenary Wires, Amelia Coburn, Vinny Peculiar, Jetstream Pony, Oliver Elf Army and All Flags Are Grey are listed on the line up for the rest of the weekend. On top of the music, this year also features a showing of Something Left Behind, a documentary that tells the story of the Wedding Present’s debut album George Best, at the Duke of York’s Cinema at 4pm on Friday that also features a Q&A with David Gedge.

Our most straightforward gig in our previews this month is on Tuesday 21st August at the Green Door Store. It’s straightforward in that it isn’t a festival or an in-store, but the fact that The Academy of Sun are headlining probably means that it won’t be that straightforward as your average gig. Support comes from Kemper Norton and M. Butterfly & The Glass Saints.

37592963_10155780140873775_8857996707967795200_oThe following day Our Girl play at Resident roughly coinciding with the launch of their album Stranger Today (the album’s out on 17th August, but the in store isn’t until Wednesday 22nd). If you pre-order the album from Resident (which is available on a variety of CD, LP and cassette formats), you’ll get a guest list place which will get you in.

Our last thing to mention is the Fiddlers Street Festival taking place on the Sunday of the Bank Holiday, which is being curated by Warsaw Radio and Night House outside the Fiddlers Elbow. Keep an eye out of Facebook for line up announcements.
