THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 18

 

A relatively short and sweet pointer this time around. Got a couple of gigs that are due to take your attention away from whatever it was that you were thinking of doing. It’s time to think again…

KISSY SELL OUT (DJ Set)
December and January are something of a lull on the gig scene in most towns. To be fair it’s pretty much the same in Brighton too. Christmas will have it’s parties and late drunken nights for sure, as we all dive into that relieving holiday period. January turns and it’s way too cold outside and you’re bound to wait until the pay cheque arrives before contemplating poking your nose outside of your nest. That is except for the late night blow out that is New Years Eve. This year throws up a handful of decent parties across our town, but the highlight is definitely Kissy Sell Out. Playing his usual lively, electro-funk set of wicked remixes, from the likes of Chromeo to Does It Offend You Yeah, Oh and his Gwen Stefani has to be heard to be believed! He is a master of working crowds into a frenzy and will build the perfectly-suited Digital nightclub up to a messy peak. His DJ set is due to be as part of the after party so prepare for a late one.

ACT:                    KISSY SELL OUT
VENUE:               DIGITAL, Brighton Beach
COST:                  £15.00
DATE:                 New Years Eve 2008
WEBSITE:         Myspace

CANDI STATON
You heard me right. The legendary soul singer and renaissance woman hits our lucky shoreline in February. Playing at The Old Market you can expect her usual ‘best of’ collection from her 20+ albums. The best of her well known tunes include the disco classic ‘Young Hearts Run Free’ and the latter and engaging 90’s dance hit, ‘You Got The love’– a tune you have no doubt peaked to on a night out in any club from the 1990’s. She’s well known for a reason and that reason is mainly her voice. She’ll belt out the loud notes with such a volume that you won’t quite know what’s hit you. That’s a skill you never lose. This gospel singing Soul legend will be a sight to behold. Chances won’t come around for this type of legendary artist that often in our little city, so make the most of it and pop out for a trip down memory lane. All together now…”Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air…”

ACT:                    CANDI STATON
VENUE
:                THE OLD MARKET, Brighton
COST:                  £18.00
DATE:                 Wednesday 25th February 2009
WEBSITE:          Myspace

That’s a couple of sets that will surely get you moving. If they don’t then I suggest you check your feet are still attached!
