Live Is Alive! Halloween Special

Tue 29 Sep 2020

A night of pungent power-punk and grunge presented by The Green Door Store and the Music Venue Alliance Brighton. The third in our series of fully seated, socially distanced live music events back it the Brighton Dome Concert Hall.

Demob Happy

Established three-piece combine sweet and sour lush melodies with heavy, gnarly guitars in an understated, almost '70s way. Originally from Newcastle and now based in Brighton, the band released their second album Holy Doom in 2018, followed by a support slot on Jack White’s world tour.

Sick Joy

Cutting together malign heaviness with acidic melody then tied in place with a dose of contagious pop, Sick Joy's 'noise-pop' echoes influences of the Pixies and Nirvana among others. The band moved to Brighton from Newcastle in 2016 and played their first sold out show at Patterns with fellow north-to-south bands Demob Happy and Tigercub.


The Brighton three-piece fuse the abrasive tendencies of Sonic Youth with the lush alt-pop of the 90's, inhabiting a space where the most infectious melodies sit alongside experimental musicality. Their blistering live show earned them Latitude Festival Highlights, a string of packed Great Escape shows and support with Blood Red Shoes, Kid Kapichi, Deap Vally, Tigercub and Xcerts.


Hailing from Canada, Greece and Southampton respectively, band members Annie, Daphne and Scott collectively make up electro-punk powerhouse CLT DRP. The Brighton based trio have just released their debut album, Without the Eyes on Small Pond recordings with influences ranging as far and wide as Death Grips to Peaches.

Brighton’s music venues are joining forces to programme a series of live gigs to support and protect the city’s vibrant music scene over four consecutive Saturday evenings from 17 October to 7 November 2020. Each event will feature local emerging artists and bands, programmed and presented in collaboration with grassroots music venues.
