Brighton gig guide 7 – 13 March

Your guide to live music in Brighton this week.

We are here, live and direct from spring time (officially). The nights are getting longer, the itch to beach beer is growing, and the city is beginning to bloom into life after two years of cultural winter.

This week there one hell of a lot of live events happening the city. Barry from Eastenders is hosting a big night at Concorde 2, The Wanted are reminding the Brighton Centre that they exist, and a bunch of grassroots hip hop heads are bumping a new event at Komedia. There’s something for everyone, just the way it should be.
