Tuesday – Bloom @ The Green Door Store

Welcoming up and coming Brighton based band, Bloom, on Tuesday night is the much loved Green Door Store. Described as “vibrant, dynamic indie pop” and “the best of 80s-laced art pop”, they’re sure to lift your spirits for the week ahead. In fact, in their own words they describe themselves as making “alternative, life affirming, wizard pop”. If upbeat, retro, indie-type bops are your thing, then make sure you don’t miss out on this unique band’s Brighton showcase!
