Post subject: Brighton Pre Gig ? Reply with quote

Anyone up for a Brighton pre gig on 25th October ??.... I'm up for getting involved in helping to organise if enough people are interested.... plenty of pubs near the venue who I'm sure wouldn't mind some extra punters on a Tuesday ...I live in Brighton .... anyone else nearby fancy it ?

Fish Fry is on Thursday nights only, at Jam Brighton in Middle Street .... shame as it's a good night ..... guess we had better start thinking about a venue in the new year ... maybe book a local ska dj as well ?

Thats the place. p'raps it might be a good venue anyway for a pre-show?

plenty of room to dance downstairs, and all set for DJ's

Local ish to Brighton is the Marvelous DJ Conal (Gosport i think...)

I'd get him in on it.

There was an aftershow last year in the place at the bottom of Preston Street (The Engine Room) which was put on by shop above the Punker Bunker and the manager of the Concorde from what I could tell...
Was a brilliant way to finish off a great night, even if the sound system did fark up for Nevilles set.

Would be great if they did something similar again...

yeah remember that jdub, it was decent .... the Engine Room went bust earlier this year and as far as I'm aware hasn't reopened ... plenty more venues nearby to choose from though

Think the Concorde may be a bit expensive and ambitious? Something like Audio or the Jazz Rooms would be more realistic maybe?
