Saturday- Pender Street Steppers @ Patterns
Jack Jutson and Liam Butler, collectively known as Pender Street Steppers, have fast become two of the most sought-after selectors on the circuit, both championing the rich sounds and aesthetic of the Canadian music scene. With a relaxed, funky and quite often cerebral approach to DJing, the pair traverse through vintage disco, jackin’ house and their own earthy productions, with a sense of warmness that could be likened to a hug of sound.
11 pm – 4 am
Saturday – Spellbound @ The Komedia
The 80s club night for people who HATE 80s nights, with Jenna and Simon Price (the team behind legendary London glam night Stay Beautiful) playing alternative classics by the likes of Siouxsie, Soft Cell, Stray Cats, Smiths and Specials (and that’s just the eSSes!)

The party to be at with many unforgettable, sweat drenched sessions and sweet soulful vibes. Super dope party vibes monthly, featuring Russ Dewbury plus Live and DJ guests. Expect Nu Yorican Funk, Disco, Afro Latin, Jazz Juke Beats and Percussive Soul.

Saturday – 2003 & Dude Ranch @ Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar
2003 is a revival of the much-missed early 200s indie night, playing music from The Strokes, The White Stripes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and other big names. Expect all the best hits and bits from 2000 – 2006.
You’ll be guaranteed to sing along at Dude Ranch. Party into the night with all the best in pop-punk, ska, and emo – all things catchy and nostalgic!

Sunday – Brighton Folk, Roots & Acoustic @ The Brunswick
Wind down your weekend in style at this relaxed evening of live local and touring folk, roots and acoustic music, hosted by Amy Hill. This week’s performances are from Bear Bozeman, Gwinny, and Self Help Group.
Sunday – EUROHOUSE @ The Brighton Dome
Two performers – one Greek, one French – dance and shout, cry and sing, agree and disagree, about life in the Eurohouse.
Created and performed by Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas, EUROHOUSE takes a darkly comic look at the EU’s founding ideals and what got lost along the way.
3 pm and 6 pm
