The Brighton institution that is Knowledge of Self
returns this week, with a bumper charity fundraiser on Thursady night down at B'lo on West Street.
They've assembled a monster line-up for this one, with a whole host of local talent on the bill.
The full run down goes a little something like this... (deep breath)
Nonconformists, Devise, Koaste, Remark, Branch 2, Real D, Amatuer Dramatics, Iye 95, Shelley Mack, The Tipster, Req, Fresh Worms, Viscious Circle, Ill Technicians, Surgical Cuts and Russ Rockwell.
Tax is £3 before 11, and £4 after, and it's all for a good cause, so you've got no excuse! from 10pm on Thursday, at B'lo (formerly the Joint)
hen the night after on Friday, UK hero Blak Twang
makes another Brighton appearance, this time at Soundsystem
at the Brighton Gloucester.
Soundsystem has just started it's new regular Friday night residency at the Gloucester after a clutch of shows at vaious other venues in town, and Dj's on the night will be Tom Proper
from Beatdown and Rare Kind's Odzilla
, with Koaste
from the Menagerie hosting.
Twang's new LP 'The Rotton Club' just dropped, and he has a reputation as one of this country's finest live performers, so I'd expect this one to be packed out. There's cheap drinks all night, and the first 200 people throught the door get in for a very reasonable £4 as well, so an early arrival is probably not a bad idea either. From 10pm.
And if Blak Twang's not your cup of tea, the Ocean Rooms
also have a hip hop show lined up for this Friday. Grand Central's Riton
will be playing the main room, with a whole host of local talent supporting. Brighton crew Plan B
will be performing a live p.a. in Room 2, with DJ's Kodak, Race, The Great Dane, Fidel Cutstro
on the wheels of steel.
We havn't goit exact prices for htis show, but expect it to be somewhere in the £5/£6 region.
