THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 26

We are acting like small children pumped up with blue smarties here at The Recommender. Brighton’s equivelant to the SXSW festival, The Great Escape,  is around the corner and we have our ‘Delegate tickets’ booked up. This allows unprecedented access to all gigs, the artists village and the chance to interview and gossip with the worlds newest bands. We will of course bring you all the subsequent treats accordingly. If you’re from further afield or cannot make it then perhaps our Tweeted updates will suffice? Find the Twitter account here.

YUKSEK
You would think that having 300 of the world’s coolest bands and DJ’s hit our town in May for The Great Escape festival would cause a totally empty calendar in June, but alas we see the world-class French dance master coming over the horizon. Following visits across Europe and Japan he jets back to our shores to provide us with his full collection of lyric-heavy, pounding Electro beats, before dancing off on his summer schedule. Having released the excellent, highly acclaimed album, ‘Away From The Sea‘ back in February, it should be a packed out explosion as good as any club floor filling experience. 2009 is likely to be his year, as not only is his powerful album proving a success, but his remixes, including hot property in the shape of Tommy Sparks and White Lies, have proved to be a master stroke. Prepare to catch a DJ enjoying a deserved rise in the competitive ranks.

ACT:                    YUKSEK
VENUE:               DIGITAL, (Blah Blah Blah Events), Kings Road Arches, Brighton
COST:                 £ 10.00
DATE:                 Saturday 23rd May 2009
WEBSITE:          Myspace
TRACK:               SO FAR AWAY FROM THE SEA (ysi)

METRONOMY
Always fearless and inventive, Metronomy bring us their colourful live set in their adopted home of Brighton. Their shows have grown in reputation as it’s often a platform they use to be creative and ultimately do what they do best; entertain.  Famous for wearing round lights stuck to their chests that flash on in time with the music serves to add to their natural connection on stage. Their vibrant, jerky Pop music is brilliantly playful and totally endearing. It is not known whether bassist, Gabriel Stebbing, who recently left to concentrate on his own band, Your Twenties, (more about them on this blog in the near future), is going to continue to appear live with Metronomy, but they have assured us their sets still pack the same entertaining punch. Gabriel or no Gabriel, the dance routines and contagiously enjoyable show will still be there.

One last thing regarding The Great Escape festival – For those who are struggling to pick out which highlights you want to see from the 300 bands on show, or aren’t sure about what order to see them in etc, then perhaps our spreadsheet will help? We’ve put together an excel table for each of the days listing the bands we want to see or are interviewing and we don’t mind emailing it over to you if you think it would help. Send us an email titled ‘TGE SCHEDULE‘ to: therecommenderblog@gmail.com.
