Time for our weekly round of up our local picks for the upcoming weekend. This week, one of our picks is not quite so local but we’re willing to make an exception for Shrag’s final gig. We’ll be escaping Brighton on Friday to head up to The Lexington in Islington where Helen, Bob and the rest of the group will play for the very last time. If the prospect of travelling to another town for a gig fills you with dread, then we suggest you get down to the Green Door Store where Hundredth Anniversary are holding a party for the launch of their debut single The Jump. The single comes out on Monday (March 18th) but the band should have some copies with them for sale.
Our top tip for Saturday is a matinee performance where Brighton Music Blog favourite Catherine Ireton is supporting Roddy Woomble. I wouldn’t expect to hear the likes of Idlewild in the Unitarian Church, but we’ve been assured that his solo material gets filed under “folk”.Finally, our other weekend tip is to head to the Green Door Store on Saturday and Sunday, where Tatty Seaside Town are celebrating 10 years of promoting gigs in Brighton. Bands playing include Demons, Disinfo, Epideme, Hamilton yarns, Hey colossus, I’m being good and Sealings. There’s full details over on the Facebook event.
