An eclectic and wonderful all-dayer to raise funds for The Carers Centre - to support activities for young carers in Brighton. In light of the West's breakneck compulsion to destroy itself, the centre has had a bunch of funding pulled, so let's raise some money to give these awesome young people exciting and creative opportunities outside of their often difficult home and school lives.
JORGE'S HOT CLUB
Having habitually seduced us every Sunday at The White Rabbit for the last few months with their high-energy sandblast of klezmer, jazz and gypsy tones, we asked these guys to headline the fundraiser and they very graciously and enthusiastically said 'YEAH!'.
THE ACADEMY OF SUN
Nick Hudson's gnostic orchestral post-punk juggernaut, playing only their second show of the year, having been working on a new record for the last few months. Expect loud. Expect a writhing violinist. And expect velvet.
Ben is a poet, writer, instigator and bardic magus who played an integral part in the manifestation of the first ever Discordian festival last year. We're thrilled to have him join us here.
Jon Griffin's 21 Crows usher forth a gorgous, droning, sometimes mortifying, always compelling mythic landscape of their own. Folk...goth...drone...murder ballads...either way, they're one of our favourite bands in Brighton and we cant wait to hear them again.
Gary is a poet and painter who's works are deeply heartfelt, arresting, incisive and beautiful.
THE LONG GOODBYE
A vehicle for Alfie Bernardi's heartfelt, poignant and clever songwriting, The Long Goodbye's sinuously-crafted and nakedly confessional performances are always memorable and very moving indeed.
Violinist, composer, sound artist and lightning conductor, Maria Marzaioli, presents a rare airing of her solo project. Gorgeously psychogeographical, eagerly present and deeply moving.
There will be various performances by the young carers themselves throughout the day/evening, and indeed they will be running around with glittery buckets in which you might kindly donate some sheckles to the cause!
