Last night we caught the Brighton Date of The Beautiful Word’s current UK tour, before they head off to Leeds, Liverpool, Dundee, Edinburgh and Norwich. The band played plenty of new material “because we can get away with it here” as well as a good selection from last November’s album Particles. Support came from Cate Ferris, in fine voice as always, who’s currently preparing for the launch of her next EP in September. Here’s our pics from the night. As always, click to view large:
Here’s our choice of the best local bands to see around town this weekend. As always, we’re spoiled for choice.
Tomorrow night we’ll be heading down to Latest Music Bar for The Beautiful Word’s launch for their new album Particles. Support comes from The Common Tongues and the brilliantly named Emperors of Ice Cream. Meanwhile, over at Brighton’s newest venue Bermuda Triangle (tucked in alongside Digital) Theo Verney and Bad For Lazarus are supporting Traams for the launch of issue number three of Boon Magazine. Also on Thursday is Fragile Creatures second curated night at the Blind Tiger. This time around they’re bringing along Octopuses for some live music and The Maydays for Wheel of Fortune Karaoke.
Friday Night is this month’s Les Enfants Terribles, who have a great line up as ever. Top of the bill at the Blind Tiger this month is Plum, a relative newcomer to Brighton who has plenty of accomplishments under her belt – earlier this year she was awarded Best Electronic Artist at the Scottish Music Awards. Alongside her are Phantom Runners who have recently been making the video for their new single and local Math Rock trio Patchwork Natives.
On Saturday Night, Brighton’s Finest host an evening at The Old Market. The night is headlined by The Mojo Fins, but it’s also worth noting that it’ll be your last ever chance to see support act Apples and Eve live before they split up and go their separate ways.
