Caustic Comedy Nights

Sarah Callaghan(UK)

The name itself ‘Caustic Comedy’ is based on a particular form of humour: comedy that is acerbic, cutting-edge, even cruel or insulting but always amusing, indeed, corrosive and burning as the word ‘caustic’ itself suggests.

Baba Brinkman’s Rap Guide To Consciousness

Fringe First winner and “peer-reviewed rapper” Baba Brinkman explores the scientific study of consciousness in his latest hip-hop comedy. Baba’s brain consists of roughly 90 billion neurons with trillions of connections, and none of them has any clue that he exists. And yet those cells come together to produce a steady stream of ill rhymes, laughs, and mind-blowing scientific findings. “Will make your brain buzz” (Evening Standard)”Hilarious and touching – utterly unique” (Broadway Baby) 

“Engaging and humorous – sends synapses racing” (The Reviews Hub)

The Mike Ross Band

Du Bellows
 

Local legends The Mike Ross Band (soaked in soul, burnt in blues – Kerrang) roll back into town for their only Brighton headline show of 2018.  Whipcord tight and razor sharp after months of touring the UK, Russia and Spain the band will lay down a set of their consummate blend of west coast Americana & southern rock and, as an extra incentive to attend, will be recording their performance for inclusion on their next album. 

 
Fuzzed up, fierce and full frontal fiery attack coupled with sexy, smooth slidin’, southern soul! – Mojo Magazine

 

The Mike Ross Band will be augmented for this special show by Jade Danielle Williams (The Voice) on piano and vocals after an opening slot from her band, the spellbinding Du Bellows.  This also happens to be their debut Brighton performance and they promise to deliver their unique form of storytelling woven through progressive, soulful music.

Harry Farmer presents

Scott Lavene

Born in Essex, Scott Lavene was raised on power ballads, punk and swearing. In bands since his teens, scratching out a pound note on with dead end jobs in various towns. Always moving, sunny side down, trying to find something to cling to. In London during the late noughties, the behaviour became darker, the songs got better and there came a sniff from some major labels and a stint in New York including playing at CBGB’s. 

The songs are stories, tragic and funny, catchy, honest and passionate. They keep you on your toes, as will Scott Lavene if you keep your eyes on him.
