New Brighton Music

The received wisdom is that new music tends to dry up as you head towards the end of the year, but more than halfway into November, there’s no abating from our local music scene. Here’s this week’s dose of new music:

April gig previews

OK, so we’re several days into April before posting our April gig previews, but I’m sure you’ve all been eating chocolate eggs (and reading the comeback Fruity Water Brighton Rocks post) to be thinking about going to gigs. But the Easter holidays are over, so let’s crack on (egg pun intended) Continue reading

January 2018 gig previews

After posting our 2017 reflections in our top 25 over the past few weeks the time has come to look forward again. Here’s our January 2018 gig preview post.

GDS 7First up is a band who were in the top five of our end of year list. Fresh from supporting Fujiya & Miyagi on their UK tour in December, grasshopper are headlining their own gig at the Green Door Store on 3rd January, supported by Red Deer People and Olm. Continue reading

Brighton Music Blog 2017 Top 25 – number 4 – grasshopper

Untitledes

We haven’t managed to make it along to many Bleeding Hearts Recordings related things this year, but we’re still fans of what they do with their regular monthly nights ploughing a different furrow to everyone else. They’ve only put out one record this year, which felt (to us at least) like it was a long time coming. Since the recording of the three tracks on grasshopper‘s Nothing Like Us single they’ve changed guitarists a number of times, but have now settled on a line up which has added some meat to the post-punk bones of their previous post-punk incarnation. Where so many guitar bands in Brighton opt for a grungey shoegaze sound it’s always refreshing hear grasshopper (which you can do on the 3rd January at the Green Door Store)

 

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.

Gallery : Prince Vaseline, Red Deer People and grasshopper at Green Door Store

We haven’t posted up a gallery of a local gig since October last year, and the last time we featured a gig at the Green Door Store was back in 2014. It’s been a while. So here are some shots from last night’s gig. Prince Vaseline headlined supported by Red Deer People and grasshopper, and turnout was surprisingly good for a grey Sunday in January.
