February Gig Previews

27024292_1758823704148932_4865391248267470806_oSo, that’s January pretty much done with, which means it’s time for our February gig roundup. First up is an all dayer at the Green Door Store this Saturday from our friends over at Brighton Noise. Thanks to the Facebook event saying “in no particular order” we can’t quite work out who’s headlining out of Dirty White Fever, Breathe Panel, Garden Centre, Penelope Isles (playing songs from their individual solo projects), Leatherhead, Tilt, Merlin Tonto, Perch and the National Intelligence Agency, but we trust their judgement and it’ll be great whatever you get to see.

The big gig for us this month is the Go! Team, who have had the venue upgraded for the hometown show of their tour to the Concorde 2 (so please don’t go to the Haunt!). They’re supported on 11th February by Neon Saints Brass Band (who are also on their great new album) and Berlin’s Gurr.

The following night (Monday 12th February) promoters Hot Wax and Tigmus to put on this months Locals night at the Prince Albert. This time round that’ve got Hanya, Circe, Tuval and Olivia May Green on the bill. Then on Wednesday 14th why not take your valentine to Rixson Music’s Support Your Local Girl Gang night at Sticky Mike’s where CLT DRP are headlining.

As well the Go! Team, another of one of Brighton’s heavy hitting bands are playing – If you’re lucky you will have got yourself a ticket to see British Sea Power play at the Concorde 2 on 20th. Unsurprsingly, It’s sold out.

Finally, our last recommendation is the Strange Cages single launch on February 23rd, where they’re playing CBGBs night at the Green Door Store to celebrate the launch of their next release Hypothalamus Blues, with support from Guru and a DJ set from Wytches.

Another Saturday Night. Another Brighton Noise presents…

Brighton Noise put on a fine Saturday night gig of local acts, featuring Porridge Radio, Penelope Isles, Beach Tape and Capt Lovelace. We were there to record things, photographically-speaking. Continue reading

New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music roundup. I’m going to start this week’s post with a band described by a friend as “The best live performance I have seen in some time”. He was talking about Penelope Isles, who have a new single out called Shining Gold. The beautiful chiming lo fi folk number coincides with the band’s current tour, which started at the Prince Albert on 18th September (which is where the quote above came from). Since then they’ve been down to the South West and hit London tomorrow before heading north, but this bit of the tour comes back to Brighton next Saturday where they play a joint headline gig with Porridge Radio at Latest on Saturday 30th September.

September Gig Preview

One of these days we’ll get around to posting our gig preview posts at the end of the previous month rather than a few days into the new month. Not this month though. If I was on the ball, I’d have posted about ZOFFF’s gig at the Prince Albert last Sunday, where they were joined onstage by Terry Bickers and Jo Spratley and lit by Innerstrings. As a consolation, ZOFFF are playing again on 30th September at the Prince Albert. Continue reading

New Brighton Music

Here we are with our first New Music post of 2016. A fair few of the tracks actually came out last year, but we were a bit distracted in December with our Top ten posts. Talking of our Top ten, you might ask why we’re featuring our number one Fujiya & Miyagi again. Well, EP2 is about to get a US release, and the band put out a video for Extended Dance Mix directed by Bob Brown from Shrag:
