Gigs of the Week: 5th – 11th November
Brighton Journal is back with our first November edition of gigs of the week, so that you know where to find the very best of the music scene in Brighton! Ranging from the tranquil sounds of indie-folk and pumping tunes of pop, this week features a range of both self-starting and internationally acclaimed artists.
Monday 5th November – FRIGS @ Prince Albert
Kicking of the week of great music in Brighton is Canadian indie-rock band, FRIGS. The foursome released their debut album BASIC BEHAVIOUR earlier this year, and were nominated for the 2018 Polaris Music Prize. Head down to the Price Albert this Monday for some seriously enjoyable psychedelic post-punk as the band embark on their UK/EU tour.
Prince Albert, 48 Trafalgar St, Brighton BN1 4ED | 8pm | Tickets £10 available here.
Tuesday 6th November – The Eskies @ Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar
Returning to Brighton after about a year, is Irish folk quintet from Dublin, The Eskies. Bringing their beautifully soulful yet quirky and quizzical lyrics to the legendary Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar this Tuesday, the band are set to thrill audiences with their 1920’s woodwind and guitar hybrid. Describing themselves as “sea-soaked gypsy-folk” this gig is not one to miss.
Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar, 9-12 Middle Street, BN1 1AL | 7.30pm | Tickets £12 available here.
Wednesday 7th November – Kitty Macfarlane @ The Verdict Cafe and Jazz Club
Somerset folk singer Kitty Macfarlane brings her startlingly poetic lyrics and accomplished voice to Brighton for a mid-week music performance. Her greatly anticipated album Namer of Clouds gathers inspiration from sound and sea-bed.
The Verdict,159 Edward St, BN2 0JB | 7pm | Tickets £12 available here.
Thursday 8th November – Jane Weaver @ Komedia Brighton
Accomplished British singer songwriter Jane Weaver has performed as part of the Britpop group Kill Laura, the folktronica project Misty Dixon, and as a solo artist. Performing in Brighton as part of her Loops in The Secret Society tour, Weaver brings “cyclic live variations of modern kosmology and the silver globe” to the stage.
Komedia Brighton, 44-47 Gardner Street, BN1 1UN | 7.30pm | Tickets £17.50 available here.
Friday 9th November – Earth Tongue @ The Pipeline
This NZ duo from Wellington are prime examples of artists who are transforming the music scene. Describing their music as heavy psych, fuzz, sci- fi, they definitely bring something new to Brighton to kickstart the weekend. They claim they ” wanted to write songs that are fun to perform live – riffs that almost sound familiar if only they made a bit more sense, simple melodies that go in unexpected directions and satisfying heavy sections that hit really hard.”
The Pipeline, 6 Little E St, Brighton BN1 1HT | 7pm | Tickets £4.40 available here.
Saturday 10th November – The Beths @ East Street Tap
Headlining in Brighton for the first time, The Beths bring their high energy guitar-pop to liven your Saturday night this weekend. The quartet from Auckland boast an exuberant pop-punk style within their debut album Future Hates Me.
East Street Tap, 74 East St, Brighton BN1 1HQ | 8pm | Sold out but admission accepted if capacity is available at 9pm
