October Gig Previews

October already. How time flies. We’re not quite as prompt as we would have liked with this month’s gig previews post – if we were we might have tipped the Platform B FM licence launch at the Green Door Store last night. Instead though we’ll kick off with a gig that’s been mentioned before tomorrow night.

Untitled (12)sMatters by Fröst came out last Friday and was named Resident’s album of the day . They’ve also made the launch gig their gig of the week too, so you don’t have to just take our word for it. It takes place at the Prince Albert, with support from Spill Gold.

There’s another album launch taking place next Wednesday too. The Haunt sees the return of 12 Stone Toddler and marks the release of their new album Idiolalia.

Our next tip takes place on 12th October at Brighton Electric. According to what we’ve read, there will be “a FREE induction course presented by myself – special guest speaker & founder of the Temple of B, Ronald K. Moiste. Ronald will be promoting a radical new book: Skin and Bone, a chronicle of his journey into finding B and how she helped me find myself and de-calcify my pineal gland (and liver)”. What we believe is actually taking place is the launch party for Sking & Bone, the new single from Libra Libra, with support from Inwards and Battery Operated Orchestra, although there’s only one way to find out.

One of the big releases last month was Black Honey‘s debut album. They head off on tour across the UK and Europe, playing Concorde 2 on Sun 14th October.

Wild Cat Strike‘s debut album comes out this Friday on Small Pond, but they’re waiting until Monday 15th October for the launch, which will take place at Pop Up Brighton (down near the i360). Support comes from Good Guy Clarence, I Feel Fine and Elliot Tatler.

Here’s another – Lazybones launch their new single Heart Beat Like A Drum at Green Door Store on Wednesday 17th October. Also on the bill are Sit Down, Big and the Fat and Swoon.

Finally, the last we’ve got to mention is Our Girl, who are spending most of October on tour. They play a hometown gig at The Haunt on Friday 26th with Breathe Panel supporting.
