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. Continue reading
It’s the fourth of November and we haven’t got around to this month’s gig preview post yet. That means we’ve missed out on telling you about Tru Thoughts 20th Birthday Party which was at Patterns on Saturday, and British Sea Power’s all dayer at the Concorde yesterday. There’s still a lot of other gigs to tell you about though, including a couple in December – The music world shuts down towards the end of November and only posts end of year lists, so I’m including them now so they don’t get missed.

It’s the first of the month, so it’s time to see what we’ve spotted to get you out the house in October. Continue reading
It’s 2nd September, so it’s time for another of our monthly gig preview posts. We skipped August because it seems most of the promoters and venues were also taking a well earned holiday, but normal service is resumed now. Continue reading
It’s the first of July and summer’s definitely here. What’s hot in the world of Brighton music over the next month though? Read on and we’ll tell you… Continue reading
Is it the end of February? It feels more like the end of April with this weather at the moment. It’s definitely the end of the month though, which means it’s time for our regular gig preview post.
This Saturday (2nd March) Demob Happy headline the Concorde 2 playing a homecoming gig at the end of their current tour, before they head off to conquer America in the spring. Support comes from Sick Joy and Heirloom, so get there nice and early. Continue reading
Three days in it’s probably time to make our July gig post.
First 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. Continue reading
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.
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.
