THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 14

 

This edition of The Gig List showcases a couple of great nights out for you at venues neatly placed on our beloved Brighton seafront. Both are part of a couple of tours, one from Radio One DJ, Annie Mac, and the other from Vice Magazine. November’s lined up to be a an expensive month if you like your new music and you live in Brighton. Why else do you work so damn hard though right!?

FAKE BLOOD
This DJ is about as surrounded in mystery as the devil himself. Very little is known about him. His name and photo are nowhere to be found, so speculation is rife. I better be careful what I write here, and apologies if I get things wrong, but it’s not the easiest task getting details on this. If you believe NME, then you’ll be forgiven for thinking this guy is one half of Soulwax. Other sources say he’s one half of The Black Ghosts, a band of which he’s done an awesome remix (my favourite tune by him to date), as well as remixes for Crookers and his well known popular club tune packed full of rave flavour – Mars. He’s linked all the time with Boy 8-Bit, Herve and that whole warped, bass-heavy, fidget-house dance scene. “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist“. Well he does exist and he’s DJ’ing at Digital, so go see for yourself….

ACT:                     FAKE BLOOD, (support by Little Boots)
VENUE:                 ANNIE MAC PRESENTS TOUR @ DIGITAL, Brighton beach
COST:                   £8
DATE:                   Thursday 20th November 2008
WEBSITE:              Myspace


LITTLE BOOTS

OK I gotta keep this relatively short and sweet because Little Boots is lined up for a Q&A on here soon with a little luck and she’s also getting her own Recommender posting too, so I don’t want the blog turning into too much of a Little Boots love-fest. However, she is totally adorable and a refreshingly brilliant musician. She’s blowing up in the media just about everywhere currently with her awesome synth-pop. As the former frontwoman for the band Dead Disco she should be used to live performances, yet she’s as fresh-faced and wide-eyed as her gathering crowds of teenage worshipers. She’s coming to our town for what will be one of three gigs in the last few months of 2008 in Brighton with the Vice Magazine tour, ‘Vice Kills’, at Coalition on the beach front. She will perform on the same bill as DJ Nightmoves and rapper DELS. All will be well worth your investigative time.

ACT:                    LITTLE BOOTS
VENUE:                VICE KILLS @ COALITION, Brighton Beach
COST:                  £7
DATE:                  Friday 7th November
WEBSITE:             Myspace

Please note that these are two separate gigs involving Little Boots, so don’t get the two confused. Whether you catch her at the first or second performance you really have no excuse to miss her. See you there. Enjoy…

    Alright,

    Good idea – done.

    It was good to see you at Surkin too, can’t really remember a lot of our exchange but with very little detective work i assume it was something to do with blogs 🙂

    See you there soon.

    It would’ve been a little bit rubbish if I’d just said “I know however that he is Touche”.

    The post was more about stiring up the mystery factor that a few artists are deciding to cover themselves in these days, re: Bithee Bitchee Ya Ya Ya, The Golden Filter etc

    Thanks all the same though…
    Mike
