Love Thy Neighbour's Free Entry Christmas Special!

'Woah there, two Love Thy Neighbour updates in one week, what the hell is going on here?' I hear you ask. Well, we have a new show to announce AND we need to remind you about our final show of the year; our Free Entry Christmas special at The Hope on Friday.

Firstly, our Xmas special. It features 3 of our favourite local acts and is completely free! Headlining is Tense Men, a two piece featuring Sauna Youth / Cold Pumas member Ollie. Bands like Woven Bones come to mind as they mix shoegaze, punk, pop and noise. But enough of of the lazy comparisons and genre pigeon-holing, hear them here:


Main support comes from Speak Galactic, another duo, although up until recently were more of a one-man-orchestra, employing an array of pedals, samplers, a guitar and vocals. Now featuring a live drummer, the band continue to paint an incredible wash of textures, but now with added live punch!

First on are a band who have been causing quite a stir in industry circles lately and are well worth checking out. Hockeysmith revolve around the sister duo of Annabel and Georgina, but upset this show's numeric equality by actually being a four piece. Their internet presence has been minimal / mysterious, but they released the below video which indicates their sound; a pop infused grunge / rock act.

Secondly, we're proud to announce that we're co-promoting Shearwater's return to Brighton with our good friends One Inch Badge. It will be at the Haunt on Friday 30th March and you can get tickets here: // // // Resident Music (01273 606312) // Rounder Records (01273 325440).

That's all for now,

Love Thy Neighbour
