Another Friday approaches and as you twiddle your fingers, glaring through your events listings on Facebook with one hand whilst bashing return call on your friend’s number with the other – we have put together this guide for something that should probably take your interest. Friday 17th of June never looked so damn attractive.
It’s Friday night, down at the Green Door Store and Wax Machine are set to begin your affair with the evening. Pushed by their plethora of sounds, saxophones, guitars and rhythm sections that bleed an affinity with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Jefferson Airplane and America’s far coast; these have become one of the most exciting groups within Brighton’s scene. We cannot recommend getting down to see thee guys enough, check out their latest trip ‘Living With A Wizard’ – a funky jig through interjecting guitar sounds and a more left field approach to psychedelia. We love this bunch of cats.
Southampton’s Melt Dunes come across for the next slot. Their eclectic take on aggressive psychedelia has lead them to become regular favourites cross the South Coast. After catching them recently across at Late Night Lingerie, it is clear to see why they have their audience in Brighton, dropped within an array of sounds and pedals, the quartet can make a noise.
Finally, your main attraction comes in the form of Strange Cages, Brighton’s own hell for leather garage rock’n’rollers. Tying the Brighton music scene closely together, this troupe are regular offenders across the city, popping up left right and centre – not that you should ever go complaining about this. Their belabouring take on sleazy punk drags their sound through Brighton’s back alleys, consistently picking at the vermin and the muck lathered on the side of the road. Their noise is relentless and compelling to watch. Enough reason in themselves to draw a huge crowd tonight, be sure to catch them, they are going many places right now.
