The 2nd Hidden Herd All-Dayer
Brighton Source
by Nick McAllister
4d ago
Hidden Herd are really becoming an important part of the Brighton Music Scene. They have pulled together some diverse and interesting line ups. Not every act may be to your taste, but the desire to be different and promote quality deserves undivided attention. This is their second All-Dayer event at the Green Door Store, and the line up is getting serious. Genuinely all killer and absolutely zero filler. To make matters worse, for our post Glastonbury recovery haze, we actually really want to see the first band on. Slightly flustered from the rush, we enter the midday darkness to a lovely jang ..read more

Love Supreme Festival 2024 Review
Brighton Source
by Steve Clements
4d ago
Saturday 6th July All roads led to Glynde Place for the latest instalment of this long-established local festival since the inaugural event in 2013. Brighton Source has covered all but the first one and you can read our previous reviews here. As with all previous years there is an eclectic mix of music legends, household names and newcomers. Despite creating a meticulously-crafted spreadsheet, it wasn’t possible to be in two (or three) places at once so, due to overcrowded tents and set clashes, flexibility was to be the order of the weekend. Plus we had the mixed bag of windy weather to conte ..read more

Devendra Banhart, Thursday 15th August 2024
Brighton Source
by Jon Southcoasting
1w ago
Devendra Banhart is a bit of a legend, so it’s quite a coup that Melting Vinyl have managed to secure this concert in Kemp Town’s gorgeous St George’s Church, his only UK gig this year other than the Green Man Festival, for which we guess this Brighton gig is a bit of a warm up. If you don’t know Venezuelan-American freak folk artist Banhart, he’s well known for an original oeuvre that combines meditative folk with toe-tapping world rhythms in a style that gets feet-tapping and faces smiling. It is a style entirely his own. More than ten albums into a 20-plus year career, he continues to supri ..read more

Galliano Interview
Brighton Source
by Steve Clements
2w ago
One of the main acts signed to Gilles Peterson’s zeitgeist-capturing Talkin’ Loud label in the 90s alongside Young Disciples and Omar, Galliano were jazz club kids who made records and played gigs around the world to adoring fans until they split in 1997. They reformed last year and with a new album released this August, we caught up with Rob Gallagher and Valerie Etienne to find out more about their surprise return, ahead of their appearance at this year’s Love Supreme Festival. Welcome back (as Galliano). What was the catalyst that brought you back together last year? Rob: I guess the actual ..read more

DAAM/MEANS MAG Electronic Music Night Review
Brighton Source
by John Parry
2w ago
On a sweltering Sunday, it might be as expected that an electronic music night is taking place deep in the basement of The Bees Mouth. The world of drone often gets over-associated with the darker, serious side of things after all but that really is a false assumption. The cosy huddle gathered in the venue’s cellar for tonight’s show are a reminder that the leftfield might focus on listening but there’s also lightness and levitation to be had. Co-curated by the DAAM (Difficult Art And Music) label with their new voice-piece MEANS Magazine, the promise is a night of audio-visual ambience with ..read more

A Different Song Review
Brighton Source
by Susanne Crosby
3w ago
Set at an Open Mic night, A Different Song gives us three very different people and the trials of performing and putting on a show. Alternating between the backstage discussions and the on stage open mic sections where the audience becomes part of the show, they give us very different facets: the public versus the private personas. The interesting part is that in just an hour, we really get under the skin of these people, finding out all about them, through both the writing and the portrayal of them, ending up hugely invested in the outcome for all three. Chrissie, played by Helen Rogers, is ..read more

Wayne Imms has been holding The Space (Southern performance and creative energies) events in Brighton since 2006, and this year’s line up of music and film industry guests is as strong, if not better, than ever. The evenings consist of friendly in-depth interviews with occasional performances by musical guests and a Q+A session with the audience at the end. Wayne’s ability to book the cream of the crop is a thing of wonder, with previous guests such as film directors Alan Parker, Mike Leigh, Mike Hodges and Nicolas Roeg, producers William Orbit and Trevor Horn, musicians Clare Grogan, Chas Hod ..read more

Richard Hawley Live at Brighton Dome
Brighton Source
by Nick McAllister
1M ago
As Source walks into the Dome, Thea Gilmore is getting everyone singing along to Bad Moon Rising in a highly convivial fashion. She jokes: “You can tell your at a Richard Hawley gig. Everyone sings in tune.” She then plays a song called ‘Rise’ which she tells us was written in the aftermath of the Brexit vote and Trump’s election. A stunning voice over simple guitar, she has everyone paying full attention. We come back from the bar to find a ‘Welcome to Sheffield’ sign on stage. In the interests of full disclosure it is a sign this writer knows well having lived in Sheffield for 15 years, dur ..read more
