Love Thy Neighbour Club Night!

So I mentioned it in the last post, Love Thy Neighbour is launching a club night. It’s a monthly affair at The Hope on Queens Road and will feature 2 great bands per night, then Love Thy Neighbour + guest DJ’s playing interesting, but not obscure party tunes till 2am.

It all starts on the 14th January and every second Friday onwards. Our first 2 headliners confirmed last week and we’re super excited to announce them here & now. First up are one of Brighton’s finest, Restlesslist.  This will be their first gig in absolutely ages and if it’s ready in time, their album launch party. They’re a tough band to classify; heavily influenced by Anticon’s leftfield hip hop & electronica sound and the likes of The Chap. I’d also hazard a guess that they’ve also listened to a lot of prog in their time too. Support will be announced shortly.

For our second night on 11th February we have Oxford’s Fixers. They are part of a group of bands involved with Blessing Force (Pet Moon, Chad Valley etc), which had a nice feature in NME recently. Sonorous melodies and incredible musicianship blend together to make music that is thoughtful and uplifting. An experimental surf dance quintet. They have been playing and recording together for just under a year, blending the sixties psychedelic childlike innocence of Brian Wilson and Bruce Haack with the spaced out eighties avant-garde dance of Arthur Russell, Dead Can Dance and Tom Tom Club.

As for what tunes will be played, to be honest, I’m not too sure. The aim is to play the sort of music we like to dance to, so a mix of indie / bass music / electronica. Stuff like TV on the Radio, Liars, Kanye West, Errors, HEALTH, Darkstar, James Blake, Caribou etc.

Entrance is a mere £4, or £3 if you buy them in advance from Resident, Rounder or online.
