November Gig Preview

Every other blog post made today is probably a spooky Halloween themed blog post, but for us the date being the thirty first signifies that it’s time for our next new music post. Sometimes we that by a day or two, but we’ve got our housein order because the first gig to plug is a night called In Heaven Everything Is Fine, being put on tomorrow night (Thursday 1st November) by Super8Sync at The Nightingale Room above Grand Central. Nick Hudson (from The Academy of Sun), Mudlow, Seadog and Blatnova are all on the bill, accompanied by visuals from Cinema Iloobia and TAOS films.

There’s two gigs to mention on Thursday 8th November, both of which are EP launches. Projector play their biggest Brighton gig to date at The Haunt, launching their How Does It Feel EP, supported by LibraLibra and Ditz. Meanwhile, over at the Richmond, which seems to be doing a great job of re-establishing itself as a music venue rather than just a pub, Wax Machine are playing a gig to celebrate the launch of their new EP Mind Palace.

There’s a threat of Porridge Radio playing happy birthday for half anhour, which you’ll have to go to the gig to find out how real that threat is. Support comes from Canadian Embassy, The Tubs and SUEP.

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.

New Brighton Music

It’s been a few weeks since out last post for which we can only apologise – we had a holiday, then jet lag, and only now we’re back on the blogging wagon. In that time both The Magic Gang and Fickle Friends have released their albums, and it seems to have been one of the busiest periods for other bands to share new music. We’d have no hope of catching up if we wrote up our new music post the way we normally do, with us much info as we have and details of any upcoming gigs, so for this post we’re going to keep things brief – just names of bands and tracks – and hopefully by next week we can get back to normal.
