Established in 2004, The Catalyst Club is Brighton’s longest-running spoken word night and pays tribute to the old tradition of French salons. On the night three guest speakers take to the lectern to talk for fifteen minutes on a subject close to their heart. The Catalyst Club is open to anyone with a passion, no matter how bizarre or niche. Since its inception it has hosted over 700 talks that have ranged from zombie films, Marmite, the history of the Martini, the suffragettes and the Spartans to demonology, bum reading, moths and the wonderful world of slime mould. Their BBC Radio 4 special can be found here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b081jnp1

What happens during the event? (8pm-9:30pm)Join us for a few drinks, a 45min film screening, drinks from the bar, and a 30min interview with the characters.
Watch the premier of the MyalogueTV sketch show, followed by a “serious” Q&A with the characters. The raffle takes place at the end of the evening for a case of beer and much more. Hope you join us.
What is MyalogueTV?
MYALOGUETV IS QUALITY, CURATED CONTENT that responds to the mad age of YouTube, Facebook, Spotify, Instagram, Twitter & TikTok, while at the same time, draws on the traditional comedy and sketch show format of multi-character and multi-scenario. In a fleeting, thumb-flick world, we’re building memorable characters, with quality scripts, direction, production and performance, but keeping things deliberately small-scale, pushing the envelope of entertainment and audience engagement. Where you see bad edits, this is because we have painstakingly lampooned the bad edits of the world we are parodying.

Peter Kropotkin & Brighton’s Radical Heritage: A Centennial Celebration
24 October, 4-10pm, The Latest Music Bar, Manchester Street
£15 / £12 Student Concession
Highly acclaimed UK singer-songwriter Robb Johnson headlines this day of celebration of ‘The Anarchist Prince’, his historical connections to Brighton and the enduring relevance of his thought, playing a range of his folk protest classics. In 2018 Robb released Ordinary Giants, a critically acclaimed 3 CD song suite based on his father’s life & times. Robb was also commissioned to perform the songs for Hartlepool’s 2019 Festival concert Your Affectionate Son.
“An English original” (Robin Denselow, The Guardian)
“one of our best singer-songwriters ever” (Mike Harding, Music Journalist)
“a wonderful mixture of the personal & political… A really moving piece of work” (Billy Bragg on Gentle Men song suite)
Peter Kropotkin was the foremost theorist of the anarchist movement, with books continuing to influence those seeking a society based on freedom, equality and mutual aid. This October to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of his death and to introduce his ideas to a wider audience, we are hosting a celebration of the ‘Anarchist Prince’. Spending some of his years in exile in Brighton, Kropotkin’s life is woven into the rich history of the Kemp Town area. A geographer by profession, Kropotkin was also a forerunner of today’s ecologists and one of the first to challenge Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest with his insistence that humans also co-operate to survive- a notion that grew into the widespread philosophy of Mutual Aid.
Programme of Events:
4.00 Doors open: Bookshop Stall & authors. Bar & Snacks available
4.30 Guest Speakers including Professor Brian Morris, anthropologist and author of The Anarchist Geographer (2007) plus other talks on Kropotkin & the continuing relevance of his environmental, political & social theories
5.30 Film of Brighton’s socialist history walk by Jon Mason social history researcher and professional storyteller.
7.00 Robb Johnson Set

THE MUCKERS + SUPPORTS
7:30 – 11pm // £9 Advance Tickets
Standing out against the layers of noises in a city like New York holds is no small feat: its blaring cars and screeching trains, its storied streets, blunt locals, and piercing sirens all meld together into a thick backdrop. The Muckers, a four piece as vibrantly fresh as resolutely timeless, are doing just that, and NME already calls them “one of New York’s most exciting new bands.”
Frontman Emir Mohseni moved to New York all the way from his native Iran to pursue a career in music. The move, profiled across acclaimed publications, from Rolling Stone to Billboard, only marked the beginning of the band’s story. Upon landing in this new environment, Mohseni met the three guys that would become his closest friends, and build with him the enlivening sound and enrapturing live show that The Muckers have garnered early praises for: Anthony Azarmgin at the bass, Chris Cawley on rythm guitar, and John Zimmerman behind the drums.
Endaevor is a fitting title for the band’s debut. Their journey is nothing short of an odyssey: first, as an immigrant taking refuge in New York City to have the right to perform rock music, then as a band caught in the global pandemic who’s had to let go of their greatest strength: thriving on any stage – from performing with Pond in a 800-cap room to making the crowds dance and sweat in the divey bars of Brooklyn.
