It’s the first of the month, so it’s time to see what we’ve spotted to get you out the house in October.
First up, Magic Gang play a rare hometown show at the Green Door Store this Fridayat the Green Door Store this Friday at the Green Door Store this Friday. I hope you’ve got a ticket already though – it sold out yesterday.
Thyla are back with a new track (which we’ll have in our next New Music post) and a gig next week at the Green Door Store. They play on Monday 7th October.
Brighton’s music scene isn’t just about indie bands, so time to give a shout out to jazz outfit Barnacles, who launch their new album at the Rose Hill on Thursday 10th October. Rather than have a support, the band will be playing two sets over the course of the evening.
One venue we haven’t mentioned on the blog yet (or made it up to, at least while they’ve been open) is the new Loud Shirt Brewery up in Kemptown. As well as brewing beer there they’re also putting on gig – an encouraging thing to see when you hear so many stories of venues closing. On Friday 11th October you can catch Oh Mama and Hill playing – we’ll be keeping our eyes out for any other gigs they might be putting on too.
Moving now from something new to something that’s very much part of the furniture of the Brighton Music Scene (and we mean that in the nicest possible way). Jacko Hooper‘s Folklore are holding a special gig for their fifth birthday at the White Rabbit
on October 15th. As well as Jacko, the bill also features Paper Hawk and Family Fiction.
There’s a new studio in town. Pirate Studios already have a few other branches dotted around the country, but they’ve just opened up in Brighton (well, Hove actually). They’ve got a two part launch event on 18th October, taking place from 3-6 at their studios then moving on to Art Republic for the evening from 7pm onwards.
Finally, ARXX are off on tour throughout October. Things are rounded off with a hometown gig at the Hope & Ruin on Monday 28th October, where fellow locals LIME also form part of the bill
