February Gig Previews

It’s almost the end of January so, after a break over the Christmas and New Year period, here’s our first gig preview post of 2020.

We’re actually going to kick off with a gig at the end of January, which we would have included in a January post had we made one. Beat Hotel have a new six track mini LP out this week, and are launching it at the Hope & Ruin on Wednesday 29th. Tickets are £5.50 in advance, and proceeds are going to the Grassroots Suicide Prevention charity.

Anyway, onto gigs actually in February. On Saturday the first, Dog in the Snow plays at Green Door Store with support from Polymers and The Daylight, as well as a DJ set from LibraLibra (who have just remixed the new Dog in the Snow single Monochrome).

Over the last year or so, Animal House having been putting out quite a few release, all of which has culminated in their new album Premium Mediocre, which they’re launching at Patterns on Friday 7th February. Then on the following night (Saturday 8th) the fantastic Guru are playing a sold out gig at the Prince Albert.

If you haven’t yet experienced Nancy’s leftfield noise-pop, then Wednesday 19th February could be a good chance to get acquainted when they play the Prince Albert. Support comes from Deep Tan and EllisD.

Last but not least, there are a couple of single launches that we’ve spotted too – Lime launch their debut single Surf’n’Turf with a gig at the Rossi Bar on Thursday 20th February, and M Butterfly host a gig for their upcoming physical release at the Black Dove on Saturday 29th February with support from Such Small Hands.

Top of the pile are another reworking from Blood Red Shoes, and a track from the band new Penelope Isles album: Continue reading

New Brighton Music

Nobody releases anything in December. Or so I thought. I figured that after putting up my end of year list I could come back in January to a relatively sleep start, but it seems that everybody else was thinking differently. So here’s what’s probably our biggest new music post ever, featuring some of Brighton’s heaviest hitters – Steve Mason has a new album has a new album out this week, and Blood Red Shoes’ new LP is due any week now
