In a bit of our change to our weekly gig round up, which used to just focus on what was going to be happening at the weekend, from 2014 we’ll be looking at what’s going on for the whole week. We always played a little bit fast and loose with the concept of weekend, always starting on Thursdays (and even Wednesdays on some occasions), but inevitably there would be the odd gig that would slip through the net.
As it happens, our first post in the new format is starting with a recommendation for thursday night – Luo, Kudu Blue and Fools Empire at playing at the Green Door Store in a fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support. Four pound on the door goes to the charity.
Meanwhile, over at the Hope, Demob Happy headline a not-so-late-night Late Night Lingerie, with a couple of French bands also on the bill.
On Friday Night, Late Night Lingerie regulars Spit Shake Sisters are playing a free gig at the Blind Tiger, with Broadbay in support.Meanwhile, over at Hotel Pelirocco Japanese Sweets headline Synthesize Me. While the name Japanese Sweets may not be familiar, you’ll have probably read one of our many posts about Speak Galactic, which is one of Owen Thomas’ other projects.
At Sticky Mike’s, their regular Brighton Rock nights are back, with Dizzy Tales, The Evil Son, Saint Elmo and Mude this week.
Our last pick of the week is Almighty Planets who are hosting monthly nights at the Blind Tiger. Amongst the supports are Brighton’s Normanton Street.
