September Gig Preview

It’s the third of September, which means we’re overdue for our September gig preview post.

The big gig to mention this month though is Kitfest, taking place at St George’s Church on Saturday 15th September. It’s in aid of the Kit Tarka Foundation, a charity set up by The Miserable Rich lead singer James De Malplaquet following the sad early passing of his son at just thirteen days old. The Miserable Rich have been on hiatus for a few years but are reforming for the concert which sees Fujiya & Miyagi (playing their only Brighton gig of the year) and Alice Russell & TM Juke at the top of the bill for the evening, which will be MCed by David Shrigley. Gloria Cycles are also reforming for the night – newcomers to Brighton might know the name from the vintage sign in the Basketmakers, but Gloria Cycles was also the name of one of the city’s top bands around ten years ago – alongside Jess Bishop, We Bop Choir and 1BTN DJs.

a0345127217_10Before then though, there’s Yumi & The Weather’s album launch, taking place is this Friday at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar. Keep your eyes peeled on the blog later this week for our next post which should also be Yumi & The Weather related. Also on Friday, Bloom make a live return headlining Femrock at the Green Door Store.

Black Honey release their debut album this month too. They’re off on tour to promote it and play the Concorde in October but if you can’t wait until then you can pre-order the album from Resident and get a pass to their instore at Resident on Friday 21st. if you were looking for something to do after that, then I’d point you in the direction of Sticky Mike’s for the launch of CLT DRP’s new single. The following night – Saturday 22nd September – there’s another album launch. Man Ray Sky are celebrating their second long player with a gig at Sticky Mike’s.

After a summer of festivals, The Magic Gang are finally doing an extensive tour to promote their debut album. They played a handful of dates when the album came out earlier this year, but 2018’s only Brighton gig so far has been a packed out Great Escape slot. You can catch them at Concorde 2 on Tuesday 25th September.

I’m sure that when I looked at the end of last week about how much I would have to post about in our new music post this week things were looking a bit sparse, but it seems that actually we’ve got plenty, starting off with a band who’ve just been announced for the Reading / Leeds festival line up…

August Gig Preview

We’ve been a bit slow off the mark getting our August gig preview together, but August is actually a pretty quiet month for the local music scene (Let’s not let the fact that Britney and Chic played as part of Pride this weekend get in the way of things – it’s incredible that they played but hardly representative of what happening the rest of the month).

21369032_1560882130635579_931757122990434948_oThe big gig to mention this month is David Gedge’s At The Edge of The Sea mini-festival which takes place over two days at the Concorde 2. Both his bands always play every year and this time around there’s a 30th anniversary performance of Tommy by The Wedding Present on Friday 10th August as well as a headline set by them on the following night too. Cinerama play on Saturday afternoon at 3.30pm. The rest of the bill looks pretty tasty too (with a bit more Brighton representation in there) – Desperate Journalist, Terry de Castro, Young Romance, Helen And The Horns, Salad, The Catenary Wires, Amelia Coburn, Vinny Peculiar, Jetstream Pony, Oliver Elf Army and All Flags Are Grey are listed on the line up for the rest of the weekend. On top of the music, this year also features a showing of Something Left Behind, a documentary that tells the story of the Wedding Present’s debut album George Best, at the Duke of York’s Cinema at 4pm on Friday that also features a Q&A with David Gedge.

Our most straightforward gig in our previews this month is on Tuesday 21st August at the Green Door Store. It’s straightforward in that it isn’t a festival or an in-store, but the fact that The Academy of Sun are headlining probably means that it won’t be that straightforward as your average gig. Support comes from Kemper Norton and M. Butterfly & The Glass Saints.

37592963_10155780140873775_8857996707967795200_oThe following day Our Girl play at Resident roughly coinciding with the launch of their album Stranger Today (the album’s out on 17th August, but the in store isn’t until Wednesday 22nd). If you pre-order the album from Resident (which is available on a variety of CD, LP and cassette formats), you’ll get a guest list place which will get you in.

Our last thing to mention is the Fiddlers Street Festival taking place on the Sunday of the Bank Holiday, which is being curated by Warsaw Radio and Night House outside the Fiddlers Elbow. Keep an eye out of Facebook for line up announcements.
