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

September Gig Preview

It’s the third of September, which means we’re overdue for our September gig preview post.

The big gig to mention this month though is Kitfest, taking place at St George’s Church on Saturday 15th September. It’s in aid of the Kit Tarka Foundation, a charity set up by The Miserable Rich lead singer James De Malplaquet following the sad early passing of his son at just thirteen days old. The Miserable Rich have been on hiatus for a few years but are reforming for the concert which sees Fujiya & Miyagi (playing their only Brighton gig of the year) and Alice Russell & TM Juke at the top of the bill for the evening, which will be MCed by David Shrigley. Gloria Cycles are also reforming for the night – newcomers to Brighton might know the name from the vintage sign in the Basketmakers, but Gloria Cycles was also the name of one of the city’s top bands around ten years ago – alongside Jess Bishop, We Bop Choir and 1BTN DJs.

a0345127217_10Before then though, there’s Yumi & The Weather’s album launch, taking place is this Friday at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar. Keep your eyes peeled on the blog later this week for our next post which should also be Yumi & The Weather related. Also on Friday, Bloom make a live return headlining Femrock at the Green Door Store.

Black Honey release their debut album this month too. They’re off on tour to promote it and play the Concorde in October but if you can’t wait until then you can pre-order the album from Resident and get a pass to their instore at Resident on Friday 21st. if you were looking for something to do after that, then I’d point you in the direction of Sticky Mike’s for the launch of CLT DRP’s new single. The following night – Saturday 22nd September – there’s another album launch. Man Ray Sky are celebrating their second long player with a gig at Sticky Mike’s.

After a summer of festivals, The Magic Gang are finally doing an extensive tour to promote their debut album. They played a handful of dates when the album came out earlier this year, but 2018’s only Brighton gig so far has been a packed out Great Escape slot. You can catch them at Concorde 2 on Tuesday 25th September.
