THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 8

OK, the normal thing with these ‘GIG LISTS’ is to list two seperate upcoming gigs, but I’m going to confess that I’m cheating a little here… As per usual I am featuring two artists on this GIG LIST, but the unusual thing is that they are supporting each other at the same venue at the same gig.

Reason being that both bands are so bloody great I simply cannot give them each enough focus in just one mention on a ‘GIG LIST’! At least we all know it should prove to be an outstanding night out. If you don’t go, you may as well remove your ears now due to under-use…

MIDNIGHT JUGGERNAUTS– Resplendantly popped into ‘THE RECOMMENDER 3’ way back in June, (see the archives…), this Aussie 3-piece are also well worthy of a post about their live set, because having caught them on their last UK tour I can firmly assure you that they are totally mesmerizing live. Oozing coolness from every orifice and chucking tunes at you like lightning bolts from the future, these fellas will rock this beach-fronted venue for sure.

ACT:                     MIDNIGHT JUGGERNAUTS
VENUE:                 DIGITAL, Kings Arches, Brighton Beach
COST:                   to be confirmed
DATE:                   Thursday 25th September 2008
WEBSITE:               Myspace site

HEARTS REVOLUTION  – (Note – I will be posting all about this group in more detail in The Recommender 9). This boy/girl scenester pairing hail from New York, although originally based in LA, and they come packed out with their own distinctive brand of DIY electroclash pop wonderness. Scooped up by the awesome Franki Chan and his record label, ‘I Heart Comix’, (of which I will also be posting much more about in The Recommender 9…), this duo are headed for planet cool on a one-way ticket. Whipping up a colourful punky live set with cutting edge design, art, originality and of course brilliant tunes, you really must shift your asses to the gig early. Well before Midnight Juggernauts arrive on stage this pair will explode in a cloud of fluffy pink spikey dance, so plan for an early arrival to avoid missing your rockets departure.

I am going to be extra generous this week by attaching a video for each of the above bands. This should not only aid your opinions, but serve to help you realise just what you could be missing. Both vids are brilliantly well done with original art making them well worth an inclusion…

As a foot note, please double check the listings before booking as there was a tiny bit of a contradiction between all the websites mentioning the venue at the time of writing. I’m confident Digital is correct, but no harm in being 100%.

See you back here soon for RECOMMENDER 9, with lots about the ‘I Heart Comix’ labels madness…
