Our Summer Shows – June & July 2024

We’re looking forward to a diverse range of live shows throughout June & July, from alternative folk to soundtrack electronica to a Nashville singer song-writer… and more.
Join us!

Monday 3rd June
Lemoncello + Nick Austin at The Folklore Rooms, Brighton.
“They write like Wet Leg and sing like Laura Marling.”
The rare alchemy of the duo’s voices together cuts through a minimal and dramatic soundscape; coloured by the warmth and grit of Kinsella’s Cello, and distinctly underpinned by Quirke’s cyclical, trance-like guitar playing; a vital voice in the thriving alternative folk scene in Ireland.
7.30pm. £12 + bf in advance.


Friday 14th June
Group Listening 
+ Calming River at The Rose Hill, Brighton.
Drawing from the field recordings of Ernest Hood; the saxophone of Sam Gendel; the clarity and site-specificity of Japanese ambient, environmental and new age music of the 80s and 90s, and more, theirs is an ode to the gently psychedelic potential of wandering around in some place, any place, every place: the places in one’s own mind.
7pm. £14 + bf in advance.


Sunday 30th June
Josh Rouse + special guests play Komedia, Brighton.
Cult Nashville singer-songwriter Rouse has won fans across the world in the last 20 years, and cemented his position as one of the most acclaimed songwriters of his generation.
7.30pm. £22 + bf in advance.


Tuesday 2nd July
Eve Maret 
+ special guests at The Rose Hill, Brighton.
Nashville-based experimental artist and composer, creating works that range from lush cinematic compositions to space disco.
7pm. £12 + bf in advance.


Friday 19th July
Lightheaded + Mt Misery + support at The Rossi Bar, Brighton.
A night of perfect pop.
From the USA, and on Slumberland Records, Lightheaded are, simply, a great pop group. Their songs are full of melody and harmony, are bittersweet and memorable, and familiar yet original.
Hartlepool’s Mt. Misery take their influences from The Field Mice and a couple of other Sarah Records bands, but also early Belle and Sebastian and peak period Teenage Fanclub.
7.30pm. £12.50 + bf in advance.
