Sleaford Mods, The Haunt, October 25

By | Category: Events Coming Up

sleaford mods_75In stark contrast to the glamour and escapism of the super-slick pop world and its manufactured icons, this onomatopoeically titled duo serve up a bitter slice of reality, reacting to the various traps that beset the working class “and under”. Mixing depressing observations of society with hilarious candour, cynicism and profanity, you certainly get your [...]



Shappi Khorsandi, Brighton Dome Corn Exchange, October 24

By | Category: Events Coming Up

shappi khorsandi_75A shining star on the comedy circuit, published author and regular TV and radio panelist and guest, Khorsandi’s infectious charm and free-wheeling wit have served her well over the years. Having laid low in 2013 whilst she created human life in the form of a baby, she’s back once more to win over audiences with [...]

telman_75Under the auspicious eye of producer Bernard Butler, and with BBC6 Music support and an enviable festival CV building on well-received London performances, this indie-rock quartet are building momentum. Their last Brighton show, in May of this year, was a sell-out and we’re expecting the same of this one, so get your tickets soon. 7pm, [...]



Jason Byrne: You Name the Show, Brighton Dome Corn Exchange, October 19

By | Category: Events Coming Up

jason byrne_75The hyperactive funnyman has decided not to name his show this year, since his preparatory writing style is so scattershot, early titles become obsolete as the content evolves. Instead, he’s giving audience members a shot at a £500 prize and the chance to retrospectively title the tour. Each show will feature an on-stage leader board [...]



Morgan and West, Dome Studio Theatre, October 19

By | Category: Events Coming Up

morgan and west_75Self-declared “spiffing chaps”, these time-travelling Victorian musicians both amuse and amaze as their effortless repartee punctuates quietly amazing illusions and deft trickery. Their latest show sees them cross continents, infiltrate secret societies and outwit nefarious sorts as they quest to retrieve the lost secrets to their tricks. Equal parts theatrical comedy, adventure narrative and head-scratching [...]



One Inch Badge presents: James Yorkston, Komedia, October 12

By | Category: Events Coming Up

james yorkston_75Since picking up a guitar at age eight, Yorkston has moved through various bands and a punk spell to become an extremely well-respected solo folk artist. John Peel was a big fan, as was John Martyn. Not just popular with Johns, Yorkston’s 8th studio album was released in August to very favourable reviews. A thoughtful, [...]



Bipolar Sunshine, The Haunt, October 14

By | Category: Events Coming Up

bipolar sunshine_75Adio Marchant, former vocalist with Manchester 6-piece Kid British has so far released three well-regarded E.P.s as Bipolar Sunshine and his debut album is near completion. Confusingly contradictory, his emotionally charged musings skirt around upbeat electronic accompaniment with rather bleaker lyrical content but the results are always interesting. His pseudonym certainly complements his music. 7pm, [...]



Glass Animals, The Haunt, October 13

By | Category: Events Coming Up

glass animals_75After a slew of EP’s, a single and a tour supporting St. Vincent, Glass Animals finally released their much anticipated debut album, “Zaba” in June of 2014. It was worth the wait. Back to back singles “Gooey” and “Pools” are two of the year’s best (as are their accompanying videos) They went down a storm [...]



Tom Vek, The Haunt, October 7

By | Category: Events Coming Up

tom vek_75The self-taught multi-instrumentalist penned his debut album, the diversely danceable “We Have Sound” whilst studying Graphic Design at University. Well received, he nevertheless took a hiatus from the industry before returning after six years with 2011′s “Leisure Seizure”. June saw the release of third album “Luck”. Although it received a mixed reaction, Vek is universally [...]



Jagaara, The Hope, October 10

By | Category: Events Coming Up

jagaara_75These North London sisters have been singing together since childhood, gradually incorporating elements of folk, rock and electronica into an oeuvre whose hypnotically soaring vocals and atmospheric instrumentation owe as much to film scores as musicians such as Fleetwood Mac, The XX and Lykke Li. Piano, electric guitar, keys and syths meet soaring harmonies to [...]
