May is both the quietest month and the busiest month for gigs. It’s the busiest because The Great Escape hits town on the 17th turning every pub and street corner into a venue. We’ll be making a full blog post about who to see nearer the time. Aside from that though, things are pretty quiet , but we have found a few things that you might fancy.
Paper Hawk launch their new EP The Tide (which featured in yesterday’s new music post) at The Marlborough tomorrow night (Wed 2nd May). Support comes from Jacko Hooper and Josh McGovern.
Another single launch we spotted, also from a band who were in last night’s post, is Yakul‘s launch of their single Realigned. It takes place at Patterns on Wednesday 9th May, and Yakul are joined on the night by Isle of CC and Chloe Badur playing live and Tru Thoughts’ J Felix DJing.
May’s the only month that we get to mention gigs at the Spiegeltent, so we scoured their listings and spotted that you can see Resonators there on Thursday 10th May. They’ll be joined by Barnacles and Root Garden.
Our last gig to mention is the launch of Fierce Friend‘s album Lies The Comfort You, which is also on 10th May. It takes place at the Prince Albert, and Brighton Music Blog faves Fiction Aisle and Crayola Lectern are also playing.
We don’t do gig previews that much any more, mainly because we don’t get out nearly as much as we used to. We’ve got a big feature coming, but it’s taking a little while to get together, so to tide you over until then, here’s a few gigs that have caught our eye over the coming month:
Tomorrow night (Monday 10th July), Bleeding Hearts almost celebrate their fifteen birthday at The Rialto. As they put it: “We’d planned to host an alldayer only to find out that our adversaries had used their telemeters to evil effect. Due to dimentional complications we will not be celebrating the actual anniversary but instead our inability to celebrate our longeveness.”. On the bill are Garden Centre, Academy of the Sun, Gary Goodman and Sam Cutting. Continue reading →
Nick Williams’ troupe Night House release their new video today. It’s a lovely song called Heart on a Wire, reminiscent of early Leisure Society, and you can see the band performing it for Latest TV and a small select audience at the Marwood Cafe tonight. They’ll be playing a full set, along with support from blog favourite Ellie Ford and her new band line-up. Also playing are Michael Baker and Matthew the Oxx.
