Weekend Gig Picks

After a break for reasons we can’t quite fathom ourselves, here’s our pick of great gigs coming up this weekend.

LETOn Friday Les Enfants Terribles, one of our favourite monthly nights, returns to the Blind Tiger. This month the fantastic Momotaro are headlining, with support from The Beautiful Word, Poles Apart and Lunar Maria. Meanwhile, over at Sticky Mike’s, Demob Happy are curating this weekend’s Late Night Lingerie.

galleonsOn Saturday Night The Galleons are holding their album launch at the Brighthelm Centre. Not only do they have the 60 piece Hullabaloo Community Choir performing with them, but they’ve also had their own beer brewed especially for the night. We’ve also spotted that Dark Horses are making a return with the first local gig performing material from their upcoming second album. You can catch them at Sticky Mike’s supported by The Querelles and Riddles.

 

Weekend Gig Picks

We’re going to kick off this week’s round up of the best local gigs with probably the fastest selling out local gig of recent times. Nick Cave may have been born in Australia, but he’s been a Brighton Resident for many years, and this Thursday he brings his Bad Seeds to Brighton Dome as part of their Push The Sky Away tour. If you didn’t manage to get a Nick Cave ticket and fancy some live music tomorrow night, then Physics House Band are supporting Jaga Jazzist at the Old Market.

LETOn Friday night a couple of regular Brighton live music nights have got some great line ups. At the Blind Tiger, Les Enfants Terribles have Tigercub headlining, alongside Plasticine, Great Pagans and Skirts, and then later on at Sticky Mikes Late Night Lingerie have a bill consisting of Spit Shake Sisters, The Querelles, Vyypers, Thee MVPs and Slagcan.

Sticking with regular nights, Saturday is the next Source New Music night at the Dome Studio Theatre. Recent Source cover stars Traams headline – technically they’re not a Brighton band (they’re from Chichester), but they are signed to Brighton label FatCat, they do play most of their gigs here, and they are a fantastic live band. Support comes from Teardrop Factory, Cousin and Last Heir. Saturday is also Oxjam Brighton day, where for a five pound wrist band you can see dozens of bands all over town at different locations, kicking off from 12 o clock. Full line up details are on the flyer below – our picks are BentCousin, who will be playing at the Seven Stars at 6.30, and Fragile Creatures on at 9pm at the Hobgoblin.
