Brighton gig guide 13-19 June

Your guide to live music in Brighton this week

Someone get the bloody factor 50 out – summer in Brighton is here.

The hen and stag do’s are turning the town centre into a screaming, swirling mess of bridal sashes and ‘total banter’ costumes. Queen’s Road is a human tidal wave crashing from the station to the sea – all fed up parents, pointless cool boxes, and people that are already a bit burnt by 11am.

If you don’t want to run into any of these people, or simply want to save on sun cream, there is an absolute whopping great list of dark, dingey gigs on this week. We have 84-year-old soul legends, modern Eurovision legends, and a beautiful queer-first club night.
