£5 on the door
Blue + The Blonde ▪︎
Outsiders nurtured in Brighton's blessed bosom, B+tB are built of one Geordie, one Irishman via Yorkshire, one Londonder, and a twosome of Frenchmen. A writhing high energy set is delivered; tracks that drift fluently between visceral oddball rock and spiky, enigmatic loner-pop.
Be dragged by your ears, feet, heart and guts from fevered masochism to bouyant apocalypse, through abandoned neighbourhoods, past gangs of kindly 'shy-boys' and gigantic mountain ladies, to a warm place at the centre of it all where lie an intriguing band with imagination, colour, flair and spirit. B+tB offer a thrilling ride. You should take it.
Tres Kings ▪︎
Tres Kings are a hard working three piece from Maidstone Kent. With influences from Arctic monkeys and cage the elephant these boys should definitely be on your watch list.
Night FX ▪︎
Infusing a 90’s rock sound with blues melodies and immersive dynamics, Night FX are a Brighton trio with grit. Call it rock, call it blues or even call it post blues it goes well with beer and whisky.
