This week brings the curtain down on a fantastic month of gigs and boy, there’s plenty going on this week. Peace have a three night stint at The Haunt this coming weekend, Courtney Barnett arrives at Concorde on Friday and of course, we at Give It Back have our first showcase featuring Gang, grasshopper, Tuval and the Heights and DIVES. This month we have had all sorts, from Jungle, to The Stranglers, to Ariel Pink etc so thank God for Brighton this month. Anyway, here’s our picks for the last whole week of March; get on board!
Tuesday 24/3/15 – Big Society drop their debut release ‘Nowhere’ with a launch at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar this Tuesday. With an effortlessly cool sound, merging your favourite Bends-era Radiohead with a hint of Queens of the Stone Age this single launch is set to be brilliant. We caught them supporting The Wands last week and they were unstoppable, this band are tipped to be something soon as they support Demob Happy at the end of April. They are supported by the brilliant Wild Cat Strike and Bookshop on the night. Get your teeth sunk below, £3 adv/£5 OTD.
Thursday 26/3/15 – River Jumpers come on down and play at the fantastic Prince Albert pub this Thursday. River Jumpers are a Brighton based band, mixing elements of pop, rock and punk – River Jumpers have forged a truly British sound. After just returning from European dates, they are really proving their worth and therefore it’s essential you catch them before they blow up. On the night, they are supported by Valours, Water Canvas and Janowski. (£)4 on the door.
Sunday 29/3/15 – Happy Meals arrive from Glasgow via France and they are hosted up at The Hope and Ruin. If you like your synth pop, you’ll love these, if you like a good old dance and boogie, you’ll love these, if you own a pair of King Lears – this is your cup of tea. Pure and unfiltered NRG – they have recently signed up to Night School Records and have released their debut EP ‘Apéro’. Get on this band, they will be cracking. They are supported by Sacred Paws and Apostille. £5 adv/£6 OTD
Asides from these picks above, we have our showcase this coming Wednesday (25/3/15), we host Gang, grasshopper, Tuval and the Heights and DIVES. It’ll be mega so get on down! £3 gestalts (click attending) / £4 OTD.
