Acid Box 5th Bday: Melt Dunes + Ghum + Egyptian Blue + Les Bods

Where have those 5 years gone! Never when we started putting on shows back in Eastbourne did we ever think this little box of acid would last this long! What a 5 years it has been as well, we really can't say thank you enough to everyone who has supported us over the years and every single band that's performed for us, we really couldn't have done it without you all and thank you for making it as fun as it has been, we're very lucky to be doing something we love and care about alongside so many incredible humans!

So as a celebration and a thank you, we're doing what we do best and bringing you some of our favourite fuzzy friends to rattle those eardrums and get drunk. 

Friday 14th December
The Hope & Ruin
7pm-11pm / Acid Box + Friends DJ downstairs til 2am
Tickets £5 / /. Resident Brighton / DICE - UK, USA & France

Melt Dunes
Well let's face it, it wouldn't be an Acid Box shindig without this lot of reprobates. They've put us through our paces over the years and are truly one of our all-time favourite bands to experience.
Fuzz Club have recently featured them on their latest Reverb Conspiracy, which means they must be good!
Channelling the likes of krautrock legends CAN and NEU! yet with a live performance more akin to the Detroit garage punks the Stooges and the MC5, Portsmouth's Melt Dunes are pretty much everything we like to see and hear in a live band.

Ghum last graced the stage with us when LA Witch came to play, these 4 girls return to the seaside, bringing their dark atmospheric psych pop rock with them.

Egyptian Blue
Loaded up on psychedelia and post-punk Egyptian Blue are four like-minded souls who spent their teenage years making plans above a jewellers shop in Colchester, before upping sticks to a shared house in Brighton.

Les Bods 
Two cool dudes doing fuzzy garage rock to get things going.

And after all this, we'll be heading downstairs to the bar for plenty more drinking and dancing, as we take you late into the night with some killer DJs.
