Melting Vinyl: Bringing the cream of live music to Brighton.

Posted April 8th 2011

From idyllic festival on the Thames, surf-grunge girl group from Brooklyn, via Bum-Reading from Japan! Melting Vinyl brings you delights from around the world in June and July. . .

With one show in April, it may seem like there’s not a lot going on in the world of Melting Vinyl. Wrong! Like a swan gliding seemingly effortlessly on a lake, we all know that just below the surface, the legs are going like crazy. This is how it’s been in the office. After a hugely busy (and successful) February and March, you’d think they’d be having a well earned break, but instead they’ve been working tirelessly to bring you new events to satisfy your hunger for entertainment.

As well as all the fabulous shows lined up for May; Best Coast, The Leisure Society, Animal Collective and Mountain Goats, we now have the brilliant anti-folk band Herman Dune on the 5th June, and the stunning surf-grunge girl group, The Vivian Girls on the 16th of July, both at Coalition.

 Brighton Japan 2011

Melting Vinyl are teaming up with Moshi Moshi and Asahi to play host four events in celebration of Japanese culture right in the heart of the city. The event will take place in a bespoke marquee next to Moshi Moshi in the south lanes. These events will bridge the gap between East and West to create a flavour of the Orient right here in our fair British sea-side city, and will include speakers talking about their favourite aspect of Japanese culture to contemporary Japanese music. Please see our ‘What’s On’ section for more details.

Greenwich Summer Sessions

Set in a beautiful and intimate open-air atmosphere, Greenwich Summer Sessions is set to become one of the most established live events in London’s music and cultural calendar.
Greenwich Summer Sessions is an open-air concert series launched in 2010, with over 8,000 people attending. The event is in a unique setting in the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College on the River Thames in the centre of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site.
Artists include The Divine Comedy to Mark Ronson. Please see our ‘What’s On’ section for more information.

NB. Bum Reading, or Rumpology (!) is the ability to divine the future by reading the lines, creases and crevices of a bottom!
