Upcoming DJs & December’s supports
We’re getting ready for Christmas in December, with two top-notch shows to wind down for the end of the year and before 2015! Also check out who’s DJ-ing at our upcoming shows next week!
DJ Grant will be DJ-ing at the Asgeir show – 24th November – at Komedia.
Influenced by John Peel’s show, Hove native Grant has been a music lover his whole life. He started putting on gigs, starting in his parents’ kitchen in Davigdor Road, with artists such as Popguns, Blow Up, and Jane Fox from the Marine Girls. He also set up his own record label, La-di-da records, releasing music by How Many Beans Make 5, John Cunningham and Dead Famous People. Grant was also the one who opened up Church Road Studios with Julian Tardo. The studio is still going strong, having recently been the place Fear Of Men recorded their debut album ‘Loom’.
BBC’s Melita Dennet will be DJ-ing at the Perfume Genius show – 26th November – at The Haunt.
Melita is a radio presenter for BBC’s introducing the South, and also has her own show on Radio Reverb – Out in Brighton. A strong supporter of new and local music, Melita is a very frequent Brighton gig-goer. Check out her own podcast website here.
Fat Cat’s James Vella will have his special DJ set played at the Sharon Van Etten show – 27th November – at St. George’s Church.
James Vella is musician, author, lyricist, Fat Cat A&R (and probably many other things) extraordinaire. James is the brains behind solo project A Lily, as well as a member of Canterbury post-rock band Yndi Halda.
December 1 is Xylouris White & Thus Owls at The Hope.
Support comes from Van Coeur.
“Van Coeur are a band built out of members of a number of really excellent local acts (Good Morning Captain, -A +M, 21 Crows) and play mood-enhancing drone-laden doom-folk-rock.” – Brighton Music Blog
December 15 is Lætitia Sadier @ Komedia (Studio)
Support come from Alisia Casper.
Leeds singer-songwriter, artist and photographer, Alisia Casper’s calm and serene voice carries a melancholic bittersweet lyrical turn. Almost haunting, yet hypnotically uplifting, her songs express fragility, transience and wonder. Her recent years of living house-bound with Chronic Fibromyalgia have brought an even sharper edge to the truths expressed in her songs but, still, the humour and pragmatism necessary for coping with and recovering from such struggle flavour her laments toward the truly hopeful. Alisia is a prolific visual, as well as recording, artist- visit her website for a wander.
DJ set from No Middle Name.
