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.

Projector ‘I Am Shamed’ Launch Party Gallery

On Thursday night, Projector launched their new single I Am Shamed at the Green Door Store, supported by Beach Riot (who we missed), CLT DRP and Egyptian Blue. For the first time in far too long, we were down the front with our camera, and here are our pics, then below that, there’s a spotify link to the single. As usual, click through to view large:

 

Bad Pond Festival

At the end of the month Small Pond, rehearsal and recording studio, label and all round good eggs, are putting on the third annual installment of their festival. Bad Pond Festival is taking place on 27th and 28th April at The Arch and features a host of bands from Brighton and beyond.

The Physics House Band headline the main stage on Friday night (with the other headliners being Alpha Male Tea Party, TTNG and USA Nails over the other stages / nights) with more local representation from InTechnicolour, Wild Cat Strike, Gender Roles, Delta Sleep, Cousin Kula, CLT DRP, Frank & Beans, Drip Gloss, Inwards, LibraLibra, Sit Down and Yumi & The Weather.

To get you warmed up for the festival Small Pond have shared a sampler with all the bands playing (see the bottom of the post, as well as a live video of Skin Remover by CLT DRP filmed at their studios:

Fans of The Physics House Band are hopefully already all over the band’s record store day release this weekend of a coloured vinyl edition of their album Mercury Fountain with additional bonus tracks.

February Gig Previews

27024292_1758823704148932_4865391248267470806_oSo, that’s January pretty much done with, which means it’s time for our February gig roundup. First up is an all dayer at the Green Door Store this Saturday from our friends over at Brighton Noise. Thanks to the Facebook event saying “in no particular order” we can’t quite work out who’s headlining out of Dirty White Fever, Breathe Panel, Garden Centre, Penelope Isles (playing songs from their individual solo projects), Leatherhead, Tilt, Merlin Tonto, Perch and the National Intelligence Agency, but we trust their judgement and it’ll be great whatever you get to see.

New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music roundup, starting off quiet, and getting noisier as we go along.

First up is La Lune, whose Bliss EP is every bit as lovely as the name suggests. Here’s EP opener He Breathes Colour When I Feel So Grey:
