Tuesday – Veni Vidi Vici @The Green Door Store
I came, I saw, I conquered
Born in an attic in Brighton, four humans decided to put their heads together and get some shit done.
Veni Vidi Vici represent fighting for what you believe in, doing what you want in order to conquer the world.
Their music is a patchwork quilt of alternative rock with pop melody lines sewn throughout. Each member of the band is from a different cultural back ground which enables a monopoly of musical influences and a combination of musical styles.

Sunday – The Pheromoans @The Hope & Ruin
Failure is a discomfiting prospect, one that’s rarely confronted with candour. When art seeks to explore failure it’s often underappreciated because it leaves the desire for a neatly conclusive narrative unassuaged. With the escalation of social media dependency, it often feels as though an illusory void of veneered self-affirmation conceals real, underlying feelings of self-doubt and modern malaise. Better to frenetically post sterilized hi-res shots of avocado on toast and neutralised ‘ideal’ showroom interiors, if only to stave off the lurking sense that the prospect of failure is all around us.
7:30 pm – 10:30 pm
