check out the lineup. i'm excited
doesn't look as good as past years in terms of bands I know, and there are a hell of a lot of awesome brighton bands that didnt even get a look in (as happens every year I suppose), but it should still be really good.
Come see me play at the Pressure Point on the Monday (24th September)!
its 4 or 5 Magicians on monday, the tenderfoot on wednesday, i'm playing on thursday, and telegraphs on friday.
who else should i be seeing?
Tuesday : -A+M at 10:00 @ Red Roaster - a bit like Papa M, the David Pajo side project - really nice dual acostic guitar stuff
Wednesday : Ack Ack Ack at 8:30 @ Prince Albert, then run to Everyone To The Anderson at 9:15 @ Engine Room (both totally rocking) then for something completely different The Mojo Fins at 10:00 @ Water Margin (wherever that is) - they lost their guitarist in a car crash earlier in the year, really sad - good to see they are carrying on - really lovely swirly guitar pop
Thursday : Jacobs Stories at 10:00 @ Red Roaster - like the Thom Yorke piano songs - brilliant
Friday : Lonely Ghosts at 8:15 and Epideme at 9:00 @ Audio - Tom from Help She Can't Swim's dancey solo project, and my very loud friends
I don't know the answer. Two of the twice players are Jacobs Stories and Aaron King, and in both cases, I'm guessing one will be a solo performance, and the other a full band. Still, and despite both being really good, I'm not sure I agree with it...
As for Doll and the Kicks playing twice, well that takes the piss. They must have a VERY enthusastic and talented manager, they seem to play EVERYWHERE and the local press talk about them all the time. I won't get into this rant about the Brighton local press again!
I can't believe we didn't get a mention in the "hot tips" section. Actually, in all honesty, I can. Silly people.
and i dont know anyone who writes for them.
When's the notThursday Jacob's Stories one? I'm kinda targetingthe Lord Spiritual, Duke Raoul, Shall We Set Ben On Fire show @ Audio on Thursday but still wanna see JS (yes, too lazy to look on the website)
I don't often make silly mistakes, but I've just been asked by one of the members why I slagged off Doll and the Kicks, and after looking at their myspace it looks like I must have mixed them up with another band after thinking I saw them at an all dayer last year then just kept the opinion thinking they were this band.
Whoops! Go and see them!
but one of them is a 3 song acoustic set as part of the Sailor Jerry sessions thingy (upstairs bar at Audio) - so I don't think we've really squeezed anyone out who might've played. :os
It's definately gonna be a good one this year!
Yea I will be going to at least a couple of the gigs.
...but I won't start going on about that. :)
You should see La Momo and Lords Spiritual though. Oh yes.
It just reads like a list of all my favourite Brighton bands.
4 or 5 Magicians
Cat The Dog
Heels Catch Fire
Peggy Sue & The Pirates
I Say Marvin
be seeing The Hat.
First year playing it, so very much excited.
The ex Eastern Lane vocalist. Check him out!
