CAN Festival - Silk String Quartet&LSO Strings - East Meets West
As part of the LSOs East Meets West series, a string quartet from the London Symphony Orchestra and a traditional Chinese string quartet perform a mixture of European and Chinese music. The performance shows the influence of the two cultures on each others musical traditions, culminating in an octet of the two quartets playing a new piece specially composed by British Chinese composer, Keting Sun. The Silk String Quartet is one of the Europe\'s best professional Chinese music ensembles for classical and contemporary music. Established in 2006, the Quartet has been invited to play prestigious festivals and venues, including the Royal Opera House, Southbank\'s Purcell Room, St George\'s in Bristol, the Sage Gateshead and the WOMEX, Manchester, Brighton and Guildford Festivals. East Meets West generously supported by the Reignwood Culture Foundation. Presented as a part of CAN Festival 2019.

THIS IS TMRW PRESENTS SAT JAN 26TH THE CASTLE & FALCON CLOUD NOTHINGS + SPECIAL GUESTS TBA For a band that sticks to its impulses instead of trends, Cloud Nothings accumulates critical praise and loyal fans with the type of ease modern rock bands can only dream of. Thats because the Cleveland four-piece is the byproduct of Dylan Baldi, a frontman whose melodic intuition and musical fervor are as innate as they are impressive. Baldis early indie rock songs welcome pop warmly without sounding trite. His later alt-rock hooks are too busy criss-crossing guitar lines to overthink things. The urgency he writes with comes across in the vividness of his guitar. Since expanding his solo project into a proper band, Baldi has positioned Cloud Nothings as the torchbearers of the frenetic, visceral, and thundering rock of bands like The Wipers and Drive Like Jehu. Its all alternating resolves and anticipated breakdowns. And live, its near impossible to dispute talent that palpable. Cloud Nothings fold all of that forward momentum into their newest record, Last Building Burning. Just over half an hour in length, the album is a singular listen designed to mirror the experience of their live shows. Gerycz and Duke propel the rhythm section with their fastest speed to date. Baldi and guitarist Chris Brown reshape converging guitar parts into double-edged swords, reaching beyond power chords for instantly pleasing riffs that are urgent in delivery. Though the record touches on various sounds of the bands pastAnother Way Of Life digs its toes into the harmonies of Life Without Sound and On An Edge recalls the blistering peaks of Here and Nowhere Elseit showcases how untouchable the band has become. Cloud Nothings are a permanent staple of what rock music should sound like: gritty, caustic, and tireless. In that, almost a decade into their career, Cloud Nothings have become a reference point for budding rock acts while perpetually looking to outdo themselves as they go. DOORS: 7.30PM TICKETS: 12.50 AVAILABLE HERE: https://bit.ly/2pileMy

Acid Tongue ~ Holyglam ~ Acid Box Brighton
Acid Box Promotions are pleased to bring you Acid Tongue plus local support from HOLYGLAM + more tba Saturday 26th Jan The Hope & Ruin 20:00-23:00 Tickets 6+bf adv / 8otd https://goo.gl/LD2JnR / https://goo.gl/sGEHyC Acid Dad were aptly scheduled to headline this show, but due to reasons beyond our control they have to post-pone their euro tour for later in 2019. Acid Tongue ACID TONGUE is an American-bred garage band heavily influenced by AM-radio soul, folk and psychedelic rock. The band is composed of GUY KELTNER & IAN CUNNINGHAM perverted in their youth by adolescent exposure to mind-altering substances and strange, spiritually-driven parenting techniques. Deeply influenced by Southern R&B, Motown, folk and doo-wop, the current incarnation of ACID TONGUE is an ode to a life spent on the road and a head stuck in the clouds. Equal parts LOU REED, THE GROWLERS, BRIAN WILSON & MAC DEMARCO, the sound is a dark reflection on childhood romance, confusion, Satanism and suicidal thoughts familiar to anyone suffering from the American condition. + support acidboxpromotions.co.uk All event tickets: https://goo.gl/xjbRRU facebook.com/acidboxpromotions/events Sign up to our mail-out: www.eepurl.com/0Kch9 Join our group: ACID BOX BRIGHTON / SOUTH COAST PSYCH

Paul Jones And Dave Kelly
PAUL JONES & DAVE KELLY from The Blues Band Ruggedly durable and timeless, the Blues is perhaps more popular today than it has ever been. Young musicians still cut their teeth on its enticing, 12-bar appeal, but its real rewards, true virtuosity, poise and knowledge, only come with age. Founder members of The Blues Band, Paul Jones and Dave Kellys tangled and colourful roots go way back into the true undergrowth of the tradition. As well as their own original material, they not only know and perform the work of the greats, ranging from Howling Wolf, John Lee Hooker through to Sonny Boy Williamson they actually played alongside them, and enjoyed their friendship. After over a quarter century as presenter of his BBC Radio 2 R&B show, as a thrilling singer and harmonica maestro, what Paul Jones doesnt know about the Blues can be written on a pinhead. The same can be said about Europes leading bluesman, Dave Kelly. Hes played with them all, including legends such as James Burton and Buddy Guy. Superb blues vocals combined with guitar virtuosity have elevated Dave Kelly into the higher echelon of international blues performers, where he truly belongs. A live acoustic set by this dynamic duo is an occasion youll remember. If youre a true Blues fan, everything you need is here.
