THE GIG LIST – NUMBER 28

Welcome back to The Recommender. Here’s another quick Gig List for those looking to fill a couple of summer nights in the next few weeks. We predict that both nights out will be sure-fire hits. We wouldn’t recommend anything else now would we?!

TOMMY SPARKS

What a summer Tommy is about to embark on! Doing a DJ set in sunny Brighton, prior to hitting both (even sunnier) Ibiza and then (not so sunny at all) Glastonbury! It doesn’t get more hedonistic than that now does it! Having first caught our eye in a remix by Yuksek of his tune, I’m A Rope, we were pleased to have been pointed towards this Swedish, Electro-Pop maestro. Like his namesake, his music is often enjoyed in short bursts, burning brightly before a sense of discomfort blows out his tunes. However, away from his tendency towards monotony, you will find his pumping blasts of fuzzy riffs pulling you onto the dancefloor. Surely due for a popular 2009 on the back of this genre’s current high-riding wave, he plays at our appropriately named Micro nightclub on the Brighton seafront. It’s only a DJ set, as opposed to his full stage performance, but it’s his first ever so it’s bound to be a grand effort. It’s part of the first night brought to us by Brighton’s newest promotions team, Battery Powered, so amongst all these debuts you should find plenty of sparks with bright futures.

ACT:                      TOMMY SPARKS
VENUE:                  This Rhythm @ Micro, Brighton Seafront
COST:                    £5 / £3 (with concessions – see website)
DATE:                    Saturday 20th June 2009
WEBSITE:             Tommy Sparks Myspace / Battery Powered Myspace
TRACK:                  SHE’S GOT ME DANCINGTOMMY SPARKS (ysi)

KITSUNE MAISON

This Parisian record label, fashion house and connoisseurs of all things new and goddamn fucking cool are returning to our shores following last years brilliant show. Well it’s more of a touring party in all honesty, with plenty of the scenester crowd in tow. For those who aren’t yet aware, they produce a compilation album each year of taste-making recommendations, now on number seven which they released earlier this month, followed by a tour of showcasing said bands. This years roundabout produced some of The Recommender’s current favourites, including We Have Band, Chew Lips and Autokratz, amongst others. Two of these will hit our Audio club alongside Beni and Crystal Fighters, (who are also due their own Recommender posting soon), so head  to the legendary Brighton night spot for a lesson in modern tastes. We will attach below a couple of selected tracks from the artists performing.

    Certainly will be. I personally did some work for them over the last few weeks, so know the organisers quite well. Really nice bunch of people.

    We will soon be sorting out a post on here for our selected highlights from the bands on show. If we can get to interview any of them that will obviously be included after the event.

    All the best,
    Mike
