Tuesday – Old Bohemia + Support @Hotel Pelirocco
The awesome Old Bohemia are on tour and they are playing Brighton on the 11th October!
Synaesthesia inspired, female fronted, Scottish act, Old Bohemia, formed in 2015 around the talents of Otis Ebenhardt and Marie Laveau. The band blends hard hitting soul, fiery blues and heart felt pop into a distinct cinematic folk sound that has drawn comparisons to Alabama Shakes, The Black Keys, Bon Iver and even Lana Del Ray.
Wednesday – FRANKIE BALLARD @Concorde 2
Support from Smooth Hound Smith. Warner Bros Records/Warner Music Nashville’s Frankie Ballard returns to UK this autumn for another highly anticipated tour. His recent sold out tour and upcoming shows are another sign of the rockin’ Michigan native’s growing popularity as he prepares to release his new album, El Rio, later this year in the UK.
“Our first trip was such a great time, we decided to come back for more,” says Ballard. “I’m anxious to see how the new album reacts overseas…it’ll have its sea-legs by October!”
Ballard’s first foray overseas included sold-out shows at London’s Hoxton Bar and Brooklyn Bowl. The new tour is much more ambitious with 10 dates, beginning Oct. 3 in Amsterdam. He then travels to Hamburg and Munich, Germany, before hitting Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham, Brighton, London and Dublin. Each has a rich pageantry of rock ‘n’ roll history, something Ballard taps into when he write and records his music.
Thursday – “The Secret Level” (BLAKE BASTION + support) @The Brunswick
“The Secret Level” is all about showcasing a range of colourful and upbeat acoustica – ranging from pop, folk, funk, country and lyrical – within the atmospheric candle-lit hidden gem of The Brunswick’s cellar bar.
Friday – Eastend Cabaret @The Nightingale Room
As seen on BBC3 and ABC2, and after scandalising sell out audiences this summer at Brighton Fringe, Eastend Cabaret returns to Brighton in the Nightingale Room for an evening of dark, hilarious and dangerously inappropriate Cabaret Excellence
