August Gig Previews

A few days later than anticipated (aren’t we always apologising for late posts?) here’s a few of the gigs happening around town in August.

joker sFirst up is a series of gigs at the Joker called “Wanna Hang?”. They’re taking place every Tuesday in August (so there’s been one already and the next is tomorrow night). The future gigs see headlines from Breathe Panel, The New Tusk and Beachtape, but there’s four bands on each night. Tickets are only a mere three pounds which strikes us as a bargain.

Next Sunday is what’s probably Brighton Music Blog faves grasshopper‘s last gig for a while. They’re on the bill with Murder Boys and Strange Cages at The Prince Albert.

The following night (Monday 14th August), Brighton Noise are also putting on a night at the Prince Albert. It’s headlined by 80’s Matchbox B-line disaster spin-off Piano Wire, and also has T House from Charlottefield / Sweet Williams on the line up, but we’re most interested in this gig because it’s the debut performance from Black Bunny, Thomas White’s new band.

Small Pond got in touch to tell us about what they’re up to. There’s a gig at the end of August (27th), where locals Delta Sleep are supporting the female math rock Tricot from Japan at The Haunt. If you’re after a gig with a few more Brighton bands on the bill, next Wednesday (16th) there’s one with so many that doors open at five. In Technicolour, Heimway, The Guts and Dagobah Sisters all play alongside Palm Reader from Nottingham and Town Portal from Denmark.

One gig that’s caught our eye in the third week of August is at the Prince Albert on 24th. Sunderland’s Warm Digits come to town to support their new album Wireless World and have Merlin Tonto and Inwards as support.

Finally, Pete Fij and Terry Bickers gig at the Rialto on 30th August doesn’t need a plug because it’s sold out already, but we’ll give it a mention anyway, because we’re loving their new album We are Millionaires. If you’re lucky enough to have got a ticket, we’ll see you there, if not you can head over to bandcamp and pick up the album.

So, it’s been a few weeks. Sorry about that. No excuses really, but I never get around to blogging too much when it’s sunny out, even when actually what I’m doing in the evenings is trying to get a baby to sleep. Ho hum. Anyway, music. Continue reading
