Weekend Gig Picks

Normally December is a quiet time for music, but once again Brighton is doing us all proud by being as busy as ever. Here’s our picks of the best of the local live music this weekend:

GAPSOn Thursday Night, GAPS launch their new single I Know It’s You with a gig at the Green Door Store. Support comes from Foreign Skin and Eagles for Hands. Thursday is also December’s Source New Music at the Dome Studio Theatre, headlined this month by Rum Committee, with Mok, Neon Saints Brass Band and Barcode also on the bill. Meanwhile, over at the Brunswick Tim Keegan & The Quiet Lifers are playing at the Brunswick. They’ll be previewing tracks from their forthcoming album The Long Game, as well as other material from their back catalogue, a tribute to Lou Reed and maybe something a little more festive. As if that wasn’t enough, at the Blind Tiger there’s a Beatabet takeover with Le Juki, Bryony Bird and Collectress.

ESPFriday night sees The Electric Soft Parade play their Christmas Show at the Unitarian Church. The band will be playing two sets – an acoustic Electric Soft Parade set of rarities and covers, and an second set of Christmas songs with an expanded band. There’s promise of mince pies and mulled wine too. Normanton Street and Phoebe Freya are launching their new single at the Green Door Store, and carrying on with an afterparty at Brighton Arts Club after 11. Support at the Green Door Store comes from Alice Amelia, The Remedy and The White Bicycles. As if that wasn’t enough for Friday Night, Hypnotised are supporting the Godspeed / Silver Mount Zion side project Esmerine at Saint George’s Church.

There’s plenty to choose from on Saturday too – Eliza Jaye is playing at the Ranelagh, House of Hats, Jacko Hooper and Fiddes Smith are at the Brunswick, and Two Jackals are at Coalition. Finally, on Sunday, Sealings play at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, supported by Shudder Pulps, Keel Her and Witching Waves.

In the meantime, we’re off to see Lion Bark at the Hope tonight.

More assorted bits and pieces

Time for a blog post with more bits and pieces that have come up on my radar to share with you all.

First up is Pete Fij & Terry Bickers. Back in the 90s, Pete was signed to Creation Records as part of the band Adorable. These days he sells second hand books down by the West Pier. Terry Bickers played with House of Love back in the day and now teaches in Brighton. I’m glad neither of them have completely turned their back on music though, because otherwise we wouldn’t have “I don’t give a sh*t about you”:

Next Monday, Sealings release their new EP on the Italian Beach Babes label. You can download the Face Basement from it here:

Thomas White has put up a video for I’ve Seen The Sunshine from his album Yalla, which you can watch here:

The Kingsmiths have put out another taster from their EP. Bottle Top is also currently available as a free download over on Soundcloud if you like the sound of it:

Finally, here’s the video to Augustus Caesar’s Hope, a beautifully shot film made late last year on Brighton Beach.
