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

Posted June 7th 2012

Got plans for June? You have now!

So the sun may not be shining any more and the rain may be falling (a lot) BUT everyone here at Melting Vinyl are SUPER excited for our lovely shows we have lined up in June, and you should be too!

The wait is ALMOST over (finally!) and this Sunday Andrew Bird will be gracing us with his presence at the beautiful Theatre Royal. After wowing the audience of Field Day on Saturday we are so  looking forward to be wowed ourselves. Handful of tickets left for this so make sure you them quick  by clicking here!

Just two days after the loveliness of Andrew Bird comes another lovely show! Following a string of sold out shows across the UK, experimental Folk virtuoso, David Thomas Broughton is one of the UK’s best kept secrets. Have a listen here and we’ll see you there Tuesday the 12th at Blind Tiger Club!

Next we have Melting Vinyl favourite Best Coast coming back to visit us at Coalition! Bethany and Bobb have gone from strength to strength, their lo-fi surf rock stylings picking up acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, signature track ‘Boyfriend’ even proclaimed the 49th best track of the past 150 years by NME. Judging by last year’s show this will be a perfect way to say hello to the summer, (hopefully the rain should be gone by then) in the company of one of the music world’s most life-affirming outfits!

And finally, the largest annual Japanese cultural festival, taking place in many of Brighton’s most prestigious venues over eight days, you guessed it (that was easy) Brighton Japan starts on the 22nd! This year there is so much diversity in the festival, from fusion of live animation and music with The Paper Cinema to the classic of Japanese cinema and one of the influential horror films of the nineties, The Ring (Ringu) all of us at Melting Vinyl have spoilt you rotten. To draw the festival to an end, back by very popular demand, we also have the Tokyo Sounds showcase featuring No Cars, smallgang and Ken Kobayashi. Make sure you arrive early to avoid disappointment, and cross your fingers for no rain over the week!
