THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 12

 

Here’s another Gig List for you lovely people. Got a couple of nights out at one of Brighton’s best venues: Concorde 2. This mid-sized venue, that’s operated in Brighton for many years, often plays host to some of the best acts that have floated through town. Although I’m only posting about two gigs, there’s actually seven bands on show, all of which are looking white hot. 

THE WHIP
We like The Whip very much here at The Recommender. They just about manage to tick all the boxes – great basslines that move your feet for you, a cooler-than-cool swagger to their tunes, a fashionable attire, electro squiggles throughout etc etc. They’re a brilliant example of Electro-Indie, where so many bands have fallen short before them. It’s music you can really dance to – with lyrics. A great combo. Hailing from Manchester, this 4-piece are well worth an evening out. They hit our beloved Concorde 2 venue with some of the finest support slots I’ve seen in ages. Namely; Pnau and Transformer. Get there soon enough to catch them all and you will get one hell of a lovely earful. Aren’t we the lucky ones!?

ACT:                    THE WHIP
VENUE:                CONCORDE 2, Brighton
COST:                  £ 8.50
DATE:                  Tuesday 18th November 2008
WEBSITES:           Myspace   Last.fm


KITSUNE
Arguably THE finest record label in the entire world (OK, OK, please don’t bash my message box too much about Modular, Ed Banger and everybody else…). As well as being a Parisian boutique fashion brand, this Kitsune label have released on thier books the likes of DigitalismFox & Wolf, Autokratz and Simian Mobile Disco, amongst many others. They regularly provide us with their famous compilation albums, (they’re now on number 6), with tracks from artists that encompass the melodic electro that the label so often pursues. These albums often become taste-makers for the global scene. They kick off a tour to back up the latest album’s launch, with the likes of Autokratz, Punks Jump Up, Beni and the fantastic Heartsrevolution on show. It really doesn’t get a lot better than that for a night out. Check out the label, fall in love with the artists, and definitely get your ass down to Concorde 2 for this gig.

ACT:               AUTOKRATZ, PUNKS JUMP UP, BENI, HEARTSREVOLUTION
VENUE:              CONCORDE 2
COST:                £ 5.00   (Free before 11:30pm)
DATE:                Thursday 20th November 2008
WEBSITES:         Kitsune @ Last.fm

OK, so thats two separate evenings, in one week, at one venue, in one town – What a great example of how fine Brighton is for live music. See you there…
