They're also playing Sticky Mike's in Brighton TONIGHT!
Friday 8th April
Pretty psyched to hear the new tunes!
The main problem I have with The Freebutt closing (other than the fact that I was one of the owners), is that no other venue of it's size has an in house team who have a booking policy like The Freebutt did. Some great bands played there that otherwise would not have played Brighton due to their niche appeal. The Freebutt was run by music lovers and concentrated it's efforts on booking touring bands that other venues would not book, mostly I assume down to the associated risk. The result was some amazing shows for the bands like Tim Hecker, AU, Tune-Yards, Future Islands, Our Brother The Native and many more that won't get the opportunity to play Brighton as it won't make commercial sense for a promoter to take on.
I hope I'm wrong and another venue takes it's ethos on or The Freebutt is re-opened. Don't get me wrong, there are some good venues & some even better promoters in Brighton, but The Freebutt got a lot of great shows for a reason; the people who owned it often loved the bands they put on.
She's also playing The Freebutt in Brighton on 31st August...
playing The Freebutt in Brighton on Sunday 31st January...
are also playing The Freebutt in Brighton on Sunday 24th Jan...
that video makes my head hurt though...
Not sure exactly where except for The Freebutt in Brighton on 21st Feb.
a great return
will feature heavily in the end of year lists I imagine.
by a very underrated band, glad it's getting a release proper release.
Defintely one of the best Brighton based bands around at the moment along with Hind Ear.
yet to let the album fully sink in, but first signs are good, as I do like it 3 mins & 45 sec in...
but someone who's taste I respect a lot has told me very good things, so I will have to check them out me thinks...
but I now can't get enough of it. Looking forward to seeing them live.
playing Brighton Freebutt on Tuesday with Instruments and Codes in the Clouds!
are flipping great, can't wait to see them at The Freebutt.
maybe I should give this another listen. Got it through the rough trade album club thing having not listened to him before and thought it was boring tosh...
would love to own this record, they were the best band from the Nightmare before Christmas...
of watching that video or listening to that song.
Pure genius. Thoroughly looking forward to the Freebutt show.
playing Brighton Freebutt on 23rd Feb!
all amazing instrumentalists and although I love Beautiful Seizure, can understand the comments about writing a tune.
but to only Fuck Buttons would be in my top 10 of the year to be honest. Needed volcano!, Errors, Lucky Dragons, Why? and Youthmovies in it for a start...
really wired & intense.
Tis a very good album, and they are ace live too.
fantastic album, that like the first, gets better with every listen.
most over-rated band in the world right now?
they're a bit hit and miss, but when they get it right, they're bloody awesome...
are really bloody good.
Great line up really, shame I can't make it...
I thought the acorn were pretty dull at this gig, bar the last 2 songs, which were pretty good.
Acron/Family were good, but I got bored of the 20 minute chanting and left; I wasn't sure if it was ever going to end and some of the psyche outs were a bit tossy...
i'm sure we can find a space if you really fancied the trip! think jeniferever are supporting on most dates, not sure about tsdole...
'some kind of deranged karaoke entertainer'
Still a kareoke singer. Saw them in Brighton tonight, utter shite in my opinion, totally upstaged by the flippin awesome Ponytail.
is an Ejector Seat show with the following support bands:
The Strange Death of Liberal England.
they played the Freebutt about a month ago. hoping to have them back in November...
Think they're playing the Freebutt on the 11th too...
& amazing pictures. HEALTH are soooo good! No Age made up for their dull ATp set & I missed Lovvers, as I am one of the haterz...
to the point that I think it might be an unhealthy relationship.
and really looking forward to hearing the new LP!
are fucking incredible, blew me away when I first saw them and every time since. The best unsigned band I have seen ever, although Safetyword were close competition.
is an Ejector Seat one with P for Persia, illness and Deathfader
They're playing The Freebutt in Brighton on 29th June...
looking forward to this show!
Agreed the toilet situation isn't ideal, but what would you rather; having to go up some stairs to go to the loo, or there being no Freebutt at all?
