FAVOURITE THINGS ABOUT LIVING IN BRIGHTON:

Great pubs and music venues. Resident. The Great Escape/The Alternative Escape. Duke Of York cinemas. 24hr convenience stores. Night buses. The beach. There’s always something going on, new random things to see and do, whether you have funds or not good times can always be found.

FAVOURITE LOCAL VENUES:
Green Door Store and Concorde 2.

BEST PRE/POST GIG DRINKING HOLES:

Prince Albert, Fiddlers Elbow or the beach if the weathers good for it.

FIRST EVER GIG:
The Prodigy on the ‘Fat Of The Land’ tour ’97 @ Brighton Centre. I remember being completely torn between watching the screens or the band when they played ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ as they were playing the video on the big screens and it had been banned on most music channels so I hadn’t seen it. I subsequently watched the video during that song as decided I had the rest of the gig for the band, but they were amazing (big recommendations for a live band to see).

BEST RECENT GIGS:
Amanda Palmer @ Concorde 2 and Yeah Yeah Yeahs @ Islington Academy

3 TOP BANDS/MUSICIANS:
Bands : Mogwai, The Gaslight Anthem and Fight Like Apes
