Brighton Rocks #17 : LibraLibra

Untitled (6)es

What is the best thing about Brighton?
BETH: It’s a very open and accepting city, it’s a place where you come out of your shell and be your true self. I think what’s really telling of this is how the Brighton art/music scene is flourishing, there are some crazy talented bands / musicians / artists left right and centre. It’s an exciting place to be right now.

What are your favourite local bands?
BETH: Brighton has a lot to give but at the forefront of this Tigercub are one of my top favs – their sound is huge, bold and fierce and send shivers down my spine.
JOE: I’m absolutely loving Yumi & The Weather – their new single is guna be massive – check it out and get to know.
BETH: Others that should most definitely be on your radar – Dog in The Snow, Blush, Crayola Lectern, Drip Gloss, Clt Drp, Projector… I could go on.

What the best venue?
JOE: We love the Green Door Store, the team there are fantastic, run by Toni, who is very cool and let us completely decorate the venue for our single launch on the 22nd June.
BETH: Yeah it’s great when a space lets you have complete control and has no qualms with letting you run wild. It’s a great place for bands to start out too.

What’s the best rehearsal space/studio?
BETH: Small Pond – Joe helped build it and runs it with a team over there and we’re there writing, recording and rehearsing all the time.

What’s the best club?
JOE: For electronic/ dance and club nights Patterns definitely wins, they work really hard at getting the best djs and artists in and the sound system is awesome.
BETH: Tbh I’m happy at the 80s night at The Haunt.

What’s the best record shop?
JOE: Resident is a bit of a Brighton institution, isn’t it – they have a great collection, some awesome in store shows. I’d also like to mention Rarekind they always have a cool collection and worth checking out.

Where’s the best places to eat?
BETH: Well… there are so many and I love food. Narrowing it down is very very hard but I was taken to 64 Degrees on my Birthday and my God – it was beautiful and an experience too.
JOE: Now being Vegan, finding a good Vegan pizza has been challenge until Purezza, they smash it.

What’s the best pub?
JOE: We are both suckers for Lion & Lobster, it’s the best in the winter.

Who’s your favourite Brighton celebrity?
BETH: Nick Cave, he is one of my hero’s – If I have seen him I just go red and have ‘I’m not worthy’ running in my brain and dart off.

When was the last time you had any Brighton Rock?
JOE: I think I was nine…
BETH: I’ve looked but not touched.

Tongues by LibraLibra is out now

June Gig Previews

We’re only a few days away from June, so it’s about time for another set of previews.

31870984_10155845867916622_8293160172981846016_oOur first tip is Crayola Lectern’s album launch at the Rosehill this Friday (1st June). Friday is also release day for Happy Endings, Crayola Lectern‘s second long player, and you can see the video for Rescue Mission in yesterday’s new music post.

Our next tip is another gig at the Rosehill, on Friday 8th June. Love Thy Neighbour and Immersion put on their fourth Nanocluster event, where Immersion and an invited guest play individual sets then join forces for the final section of the gig. Ulrich Schnauss joins them in June, following an incredible set from Laetita Sadier last month.

Friday 8th June is also the date of the Brighton leg of Normanton Street‘s upcoming tour. They’re playing at Patterns alongside Frankie Stew and Harvey Gunn.

29497266_1887759464588688_1528694996562083840_nWe were sad to read about Red Deer People calling it a day. In a statement they said “And so it’s with a heavy heart that we announce that Red Deer People are calling it a day. A huge thank you to everyone who has listened to our music, bought our records, and came to see us live over the last few years. We’ve had a blast. We will be playing one final farewell show and we would love it if you could attend”. The last gig will be on June 14th at The Hope & Ruin with support from Squid and The Family Chain.

On 21st June, LibraLibra launch their new single Tongues at the Green Door Store. It’s a whole night event, carrying on until the early hours rather than finishing at 10.30 like most gigs, with DJs and a special host on top of the supports.

It’s only because we rite about things chronologically that the biggest gig of the month falls last in our write up. Yesterday’s new music post featured the first new music from Orbital since 2012’s Wonky LP and on Friday 29th June they play a massive gig at Brighton Racecourse. Orbital’s live sets are legendary (they put out an album compiled from their Glastonbury performances a few years back), and they’ll be joined by Faithless amongst others.

The Great Escape Festival Preview

tge2018
It’s nearly that time again. Next weekend, the Great Escape rolls into town again, turning everywhere that you could fit a stage, and a lot of places where you can’t imagine a stage normally, into venues for a few days. We’re not going to go through the whole line up – first of all there are literally hundreds of bands playing, but also most of them aren’t from Brighton. Also, a lot of the good local stuff happens as part of the Alt Escape. What we’ve done instead is compiled a list of what we think is every Brighton band who are playing as part of the main festival, and asked a few of our favourite bands for their recommendations for the weekend. We’ve also got a list of what we believe is all the facebook events set up for Alt Escape gigs, which will provide you with a lot more information than you’ll get from anywhere else.

AK/DK (The Arch, 8pm Saturday + Fortune of War, 8.30pm Friday)
Tshegue – a Congolese / Parisian act that bring a brilliant Afro-electro post punk show, awesome!

La Lune (North Laine, 12:15 Saturday + Beyond Retro, 1:50pm Friday + Jubilee Square, 8pm Saturday)
My tips would be RYD, The Yellow Bellies, Amelia Caesar, and Currls.

LibraLibra (North Laine Brewery, Saturday 10pm + Brighton Electric Alt Escape Afterparty)
I just saw Idles at Liverpool sound city and they blew me away the performance was electric and there was this fierce buzz from the crowd, I couldn’t take my eyes off them.
Slugabed is also playing with his full live band and that’s an experience in itself, definitely check that out!
Black Futures – I am desperate to go to one of their shows, it’s fully Immersive and engages the audience – they sound huge!

Yumi & The Weather (Café Plenty, 8pm Thursday, White Rabbit 5.30 Saturday)
Hey Buddy, Alabaster dePlume, LU’AMI, Jouis, Cousin Kula, Bloom, Family Fiction, 47 Soul, Kaamal Williams, Ross From Friends, Slugabed, AK/DK, Sons of Kemet, Puppy, Yussef Dayes, Libralibra

Dark Horses (Hope & Ruin, 5.30 Thursday)
Say Sue Me and Deep Throat Choir

Frost (Marlborough, 7.45 Friday, Johanna Bramli solo sets Seven Stars 5pm Thursday as well as part of the Rose Hill’s Fake Escape)
