Dead Men Walking are made up of already acclaimed rock musicians whose relentless touring has lead to four live albums.

Wednesday 15th June: Infamous punk band Public Image are playing on Wednesday at Concorde 2. Formed by John Lydon of the Sex Pistols, this promises to be a interesting show of experimental rock. Brighton based rock band Phoria are taking to the stage at the Haunt, with tickets still available. Having constantly drawn comparisons with Radiohead, Phoria’s show at the Haunt is not to be missed.
Thursday 16th June: Thursday sees exciting young band YUNG play at the Prince Albert. YUNG originate from Denmark but are making a name for themselves all over Europe thanks to exciting live shows and new album A Youthful Dream. The Prince Albert will sell out quickly so grab a chance to see this band before they really make it big.

Also performing Saturday night are rock band Big Deal, who play at the Hope and Ruin. Big Deal have had a lot of support from BBC Radio 6 so seeing them in a small venue might not happen that often! Finally, DJ Oxide will be on at Concorde 2.
