September gig previews

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.

First up is our latest Brighton Rocks subject BUNKR, who launches his new album The Initiation Well at the Rose Hill this Friday.

There’s another album launch the following Friday. On the 13th, Strange Cages launch “Pop Therapy” with a gig at the Rialto. Hopefully this won’t affect their Deadbeat Disco nights that they run every other Thursday at the Richmond, which are also highly recommended.

A couple more release shows to mention – Pavilion launch at the Green Door Store on Fri 20th September, and King Bee  have a release show for their new EP at Pipeline on Friday 27th September.

It’s a fairly quiet New Music Post this week – or maybe it’s just that it’s only been a week since the last post I made and I haven’t let things build up. Anyway, here’s this week’s New Music Playlist:

Here’s this week’s new music roundup, as eclectic as always. First up is Mayday by The Go! Team, which we’ve previously featured the audio of, but there’s a proper video for it now, and it also gives us a chance to remind you all that their gig this weekend has been moved to the Concorde:

August Gig Previews

A few days later than anticipated (aren’t we always apologising for late posts?) here’s a few of the gigs happening around town in August.

joker sFirst up is a series of gigs at the Joker called “Wanna Hang?”. They’re taking place every Tuesday in August (so there’s been one already and the next is tomorrow night). The future gigs see headlines from Breathe Panel, The New Tusk and Beachtape, but there’s four bands on each night. Tickets are only a mere three pounds which strikes us as a bargain.

Next Sunday is what’s probably Brighton Music Blog faves grasshopper‘s last gig for a while. They’re on the bill with Murder Boys and Strange Cages at The Prince Albert.

The following night (Monday 14th August), Brighton Noise are also putting on a night at the Prince Albert. It’s headlined by 80’s Matchbox B-line disaster spin-off Piano Wire, and also has T House from Charlottefield / Sweet Williams on the line up, but we’re most interested in this gig because it’s the debut performance from Black Bunny, Thomas White’s new band.
