Sunday Service is a promotion run by the delectable Bernie Adamic in Brighton. It’s been going for some time now, establishing itself in our seaside city as a staple night out for those who demand to rinse as much fun out of their weekends as possible.
Her regular showcase of cutting edge music has found it’s natural home at the small-but-perfectly-formed Green Door Store venue, which is housed under Brighton’s train station in an old Victorian coach house. This Sunday (5th June) the service is bringing us one of it’s finest line-ups to date, with not one but two bands on offer, both of which have graced the online pages of The Recommender.
As if that’s not enticing enough this whole event is absolutely free of charge! If you’re in Brighton this weekend and you don’t head down there we must warn you that you may be prosecuted by the authorities for neglect to your ears. In fact, even if you managed to evade the authorities you’ll probably be going to hell anyway. (MB)
We’ve been reliably informed that they’re on stage around 8:30pm, kicking off with their set of expansive, Foal-meets-Maccabees brilliance. They’ve been keeping The Recommender updated with their demos and we can assure you that the promise included in those early recordings is as high as the heavens for this Midlands-based four piece. Be sure to get to the venue in time for this group, as this is a band in motion, growing with every record and with every show. We fully expect them to have NME all over them by the end of the year.
PEACE – VIALS
Our love affair with this Canadian four piece began when we first covered them on The Recommender back in August last year and we’ve been waiting to finally get the chance to meet with them and to watch them perform live ever since. They headline Sunday’s show with their rumbling brand of meaningful indie, which lands somewhere between the dark melodies of Interpol and the percussive authenticity of Yeasayer. They’re well suited to the UK’s market and as they come to the end of their first ever tour here we hope that it serves as a useful boost to their promising careers.
