CLUBS and CLUBBING

Club

The Mud Club - Located in sunny Bognor Regis, about 8Km south of Chichester, sets the standard that other clubs should aspire to acheive.

Thursdays - In a country house a couple of kilometers out of town, club nights take place on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays (strangely not on Thursdays). There is a free night bus service to and from the city.

Breakneck - A little further afield, this club takes place about once a month at South Parade Pier in Southsea. Two rooms playing both kinds of music, drum & bass and techno.

Concorde 2 - Again a bit of a hike from Chichester to London-sur-mer (Brighton) but well worth it.


LOCAL BANDS

Pickford

Pickford (left) - Top four piece covers band based in Littlehampton. They play pubs and private functions all over the south and always get the crowd up and (dad) dancing. A must-see.

 

Rolling Dog - Young five piece band that combine high-octane, punky structures with dancetastic beats, delicious melodies and bookish lyrics to create perfect fashionista-pop. The result is the self-styled genre known as "Indiedancecore"™.


GIGS

Wedgewood Rooms - In nearby Southsea. Indie bands, club nights, comedy nights etc.

Brighton Centre - Slightly bigger and more mainstream bands. Kaiser Chiefs play there soon on April 25th.

Brighton Dome - Wide diversity of bands, musicians and dance. Coldcut play there next week on April 19th.

 


FESTIVALS

Womad

Womad (right) - Every July at Reading. World music mainly but it's gone a bit strokey chin since BBC Radio 3 got in on the act.

Glastonbury - 2007 sold out in about 3 1/2 hours :( as anyone who tried to get tickets will know. If you got lucky, well done! Let us know what it was like.

Isle Of Wight - Rolling Stones, Echo & The Bunnymen... should be fantastic! Hendrix played his last ever live show here you know.

Reading - Legendary no-brainer rock fest.

Hi-Fi South - Started out as Tribal Gathering and evolved into the legendary May Bank Holiday all-nighter Homelands and after 2005's disappointing attendance transformed again to become a two day blast - BAD idea. Took place at Matterly Bowl near Winchester. R.I.P.
