About the Event

After YEARS of futile attempts to book Big Slammu (due to our unsynced calendars) together with Frank and Beans and nearly giving up we finally got the unexpected items! Completed by a sizeable unexpected item from Bristol aka Ogives Big Band and imperial Regal Cheer. The tickets can now be placed in your bags. We don't have club cards. So.

Special thanks to the WaterBear Venue for letting us use the space for this cult gathering. Here's the address if you haven't been there before:169-170 Kings Road Arches, Brighton, BN1 1NB.

No to War.


Brighton based f a c e m e l t e r s. Weird time sigs and heavy riffs coming out the wazoo. Imagine a post hardcore Cher cry-wanking on a jenga tower and chanting the national anthem. (booyakasha) ffo: At The Drive In, The Jesus Lizard, Deerhoof, Frank Zappa

FRANK AND BEANS Their Father wouldn't let them go outside until they had practiced together at least two hours every other night. They'd just do scales and rudiments if they didn't feel any inspiration to write anything but they needed to write at least two songs a month in order perform a ten-minute show for their Father and his friends from work in their garage.  They did this since the age 11 until 18. They played gigs in pubs and clubs too around Antrim and Belfast, but always had to be out before 9pm as they weren't of age at that point.  Once they hit 18, they decided to go to Brighton as a DJ in the local pub recommended it once because the ecstasy was good. They still practice together two hours every other day. Frank and Beans are now based in London so don't miss on an opportunity to save on train tickets and see them in Brighton!


Øgïvęš Big Band, based in Bristol, deliver complex, guitar driven blistering experimental rock.

REGAL CHEER Short, snappy Indie-punk two piece from Brighton, UK.
