Two acoustic gigs, and Matthew on the radio

We’re excited to be playing our first in-store gig, at Lewes’ Union Music Store, this Saturday at 3pm. It’s free and it promises to be special, so do come and see us if you’re about.

Talking of free and special, on Tuesday 12 we’re playing an acoustic gig at Bom-Bane’s in Kemptown, Brighton, with support from Guy Hayes. It’ll be an intimate gig with decent food and booze, so come hungry!

Finally, anyone listening to Radio Lewes on Wednesday afternoon may have heard Matthew interviewed by Vicky Smith, who gave over a generous chunk of her show to the interview and a few of our tracks – thanks Vicky!

If you missed it, it’s available as a podcast here, while you can keep up with future episodes via @RocknRollLewes on Twitter.

Brighton gig this Wednesday

Well, that wasn’t the start to the year we’d all hoped for :-\ The good news is that we’re all well now, and we’ve got a gig this Wednesday at the Latest Music Bar.

Entry is £3, Doors are at 8.30 and we’re on first at 8.45 so please get there early! There are two bands on after us; Simonne & the Dark Stars and Straw Bear who, on this evidence, are ace:

Hope to see you there!

We can’t play tonight :-(

We’re gutted to have to pull out of Brighton Folk tonight due to illness – Simon’s recovering from pneumonia. We’re really sorry: it’s a gig we’ve been looking forward to for weeks.

BUT – there will still be at least three great acts on and it will still be a great evening without us. Please do still go along to the Brunswick and enjoy a free evening of fantastic music.

Thanks and sorry XX

Brighton Folk, this Sunday

**UPDATE – We’re really sorry but we’ve had to pull out of tonight through illness. Please do still go along anyway – it’ll still be lovely**

Everyone survived Christmas, we hope? We’re suffering a nasty drum infection, but we’re aiming for normal service in time for Sunday when we’ll be playing at the first Brighton Folk of the year.

For those who don’t know it, it’s a regular folk and acoustic night hosted by singer/songwriter Amy Hill, usually on the third Sunday of the month at the Brunswick in Hove. This month it’s a week early, on Sunday 13th Jan.

Also playing are Brightonian Zoë Hazel Hedderwick, and Belfastian Isobel Anderson, who sounds this bloody good:

It’ll be great, and it’s free. See you there.

Small Shipwrecks with Chris T-T – SOLD OUT!

It’s less than a week until our Christmas gig at Lewes’ lovely Buttercup Cafe, and we’re thrilled to announce that Chris T-T will be our special guest. Although he’s lived in the area for a decade, this will be Chris’ first ever Lewes performance. It should be a special evening.

For those who don’t know the Buttercup – host to our August launch for Eucatastrophe – it’s an intimate, friendly venue with lovely acoustics and great food. Claire will be serving her delicious mezze plates ‘with a Christmas twist’, so make sure you turn up hungry!

There are limited tickets; they cost £5.50 and are available online or in person at the Union Music Store. Soft drinks are available, but if you want alcohol please bring it with you.

Incidentally, if you’re looking for other gigs in the run-up to Christmas, head along to what might be Chris T-T’s last performance of Disobedience. It’s an all-ages show in which Chris sets the words of A.A. Milne to his own music. It’s the afternoon of the following Saturday (22nd) in Brighton, and it’ll be quite, quite lovely.

**UPDATE 15/12**

Sorry but this is now sold out. Numbers are strictly limited and there are no tickets on the door, so please don’t turn up without one. Our next gig is at Brighton Folk on January 13th – see the listings over to the right ->

Brighton gig this Friday

We’re excited about the imminent arrival of our first Brighton gig, at 7.30pm this Friday (7 December) at the Coach House in Kemptown.

We’ll be playing with the smashing Guy Hayes and the mysterious New Rib. There are no tickets but the venue will be taking donations at the door.

Note that it’s not the pub in Middle Street; it’s up near the hospital:

It would be great to see you there x

December gig in The Buttercup Cafe, Lewes

We’re delighted to announce our return to the beautiful Buttercup Cafe in Lewes for a Christmas gig on Saturday 15 December.

If you can’t make it, don’t forget we’re also playing with Guy Hayes at the Coach House in Brighton on Friday 7 December. We’d love to see you!

December Brighton Gig

We’re pleased to announce our first Brighton gig, on Friday 7 December at The Coach House in Kemptown. It’ll be a mostly acoustic set in an intimate venue – join us!

Also playing is the lovely country blues guitarist Guy Hayes, who sounds much like this:

We think this gig’s unticketed, possibly with donations on the door, but we’ll update this post if we hear otherwise.
