Weekend Gig Picks

After a break for reasons we can’t quite fathom ourselves, here’s our pick of great gigs coming up this weekend.

LETOn Friday Les Enfants Terribles, one of our favourite monthly nights, returns to the Blind Tiger. This month the fantastic Momotaro are headlining, with support from The Beautiful Word, Poles Apart and Lunar Maria. Meanwhile, over at Sticky Mike’s, Demob Happy are curating this weekend’s Late Night Lingerie.

Not only do they have the 60 piece Hullabaloo Community Choir performing with them, but they’ve also had their own beer brewed especially for the night. We’ve also spotted that Dark Horses are making a return with the first local gig performing material from their upcoming second album. You can catch them at Sticky Mike’s supported by The Querelles and Riddles.

Weekend Gig Picks

Here’s this weekend’s gig picks for you all. This week we’re extending things out to Monday, because there’s a gig that we can’t not mention.

PHBOn Friday night Martin Rossiter headlines the Source New Music Night at the Dome Studio Theatre. Support comes from The Beautiful Word and Jacko Hooper so this should be a bit special. Tickets are a bit pricier than a normal Source New Music though – so if you’d rather save your pennies then head down to Sticky Mike’s where the Physics House Band are hosting another Physics House Party. They’re playing a headline set with members of Flamingods, and there’s support from Luo, Caveman Genius, Demob Happy, and Shrine. Hush Hush Friday at the Blind Tiger caught our eye too – another free gig with FVNERALS topping the bill and Dog in the Snow supporting.

ImpellersSaturday Night’s pick is Clowns, who are playing at the Prince Albert. If you like your weekends a bit funkier then The Impellers are on the bill at Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club at the Concorde.

Brighton Folk comes back to the Brunswick on Sunday Night, with Amy Hill and The Galleons playing.

The reason we’ve extended things out to Monday for this weekend’s picks is to include the Electric Soft Parade‘s album launch at the Green Door Store. The album is definitely the highlight of 2013 for us so far and will be on sale at the gig. Support comes from Crayola Lectern. Also on Monday, for those who prefer their ‘problem folk’ to sunshine pop, ex Brighton resident The Great Park returns from Germany for a gig at the Prince Albert, ably supported by local singer-songwriter Tandy Hard. Frankly, as ever, we’re torn…

Three Videos

I’ve got a busy week ahead, without too much time for blogging, so here’s three videos and bits of news which probably deserve to have blog posts of their own. If only there were more hours in the day.

The Beautiful Word have posted a new video for May Not Be Love, and in doing so have snuck in a mention that they’ve got an album on the way. Their new long player Particles should be with us later this year.

The Galleons put up the video for Islands of Japan this weekend. They’re also planning a new album, but are looking to raise funds via Pledge Music to help it along it’s way. If you liked the first one, if you want to support local music, head on over and see if any of their offers (from just buying the album all the way up to the band performing a private gig for you) take your fancy.

Moya‘s new single A Little More Love is out on 25th March. Her last single spent four weeks on the Radio 2 playlist, so fingers crossed this does as well. Moya’s off on tour soon supporting Razorlight’s Andy Burrows, and is kicking things off in her hometown – they play at The Komedia on 18th February.
