Last night Orchards headlined the Hope & Ruin, playing their first sold out headline show of their careers to date. The gig was in aid of Brighton Women’s Centre, so selling out is the best thing that could have happened for both the band and the charity involved. Support came from Libra Libra (who we saw) and Pollon (who we sadly missed).
We put some of these on Instgram earlier, but what’s the point of taking photos for the blog and them not ending up on the blog? As with all our galleries, click on the pics to view large:
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: Continue reading →

Last night we went to see The Go! Team play a sold out show at the Concorde 2. It’s no surprise it was sold out – their new album Semicircle is their best in years and their live performances are second to none. Not even the freezing weather could put a dampener on things. Here’s our pics. As usual, click through to view large: Continue reading →
Last night we went along to our first Spectrum gig in about eighteen months. They haven’t been quite as frequent in that period, but those that there have been we haven’t been able to make it along to. Now that they’re back to monthly again, hopefully they’ll be appearing a bit more regularly in these pages too. Continue reading →
