July Gig Previews

Three days in it’s probably time to make our July gig post.

31958801_10156507911402941_8413843466894704640_oFirst up on Thursday 5th July the Long Goodbye launch their new album Wait Another Day at the Brunswick. Support comes from Seadog and Luke Hyttner.

DITZ release their new single Seeking Arrangement at the end of next week, and to celebrate they’re playing a launch gig at the Hope & Ruin next Tuesday (10th July). Also on the bill are Haze, Guru and Demonstration.

When is a gig not a gig? When it’s a new club night. Crest of Death is a new night at Green Door store hosted by Wytches, and the first one takes place on Wednesday 11th July. Wytches play live on the first Crest of Death, which will also feature DJ sets from Rhys Webb of the Horrors and Jordan Cook of Crewel Intentions, but expect other bands on future nights.

34069152_793567730846634_7103242193749409792_oBreathe Panel release their self titled debut album in the next few weeks too, and will be playing an in-store at Resident on 17th July. The only way into the gig will be to pre-order the album, which will give you two guest list places.

Thursday 19th July is the launch party for the new Projector single at Green Door Store. I Am Ashamed comes out that day on Roadkill records. Support comes from Egyptian Blue, CLT DRP and Beach Riot. There’s an afterparty too – a new club night being run by Jamie from Tigercub. The night’s called Club Coco, runs from 11-4 and will be playing his favourite electronica, Disco and French House.

Our next gig is the following night, also at Green Door Store – Animal House headline supported by The Family Chain.

Last but by no means least on Saturday 28th July the Rock House Festival takes place at Green Door Store. There’s loads of Brighton Music Blog favourites on the bill including grasshopper, Projector, Fragile Creatures and other states, as well as a host of others. As well as all that, it’s raising money for local charity Carousel.

May Gig Previews

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.

30623893_2147671231926661_7631411409960070976_nPaper 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.

July Brighton Gig Previews

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

Night House – Heart on a Wire

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.
