Three buzzy gigs, crammed into mid-May on the three days before Brighton’s new music buzzathon The Great Escape. How much more hype could you possibly stomach?
On 16th, 17th and 18th May, we’re taking over London’s The Old Blue Last for ‘I Am Indeed Mate, Assume You’ll Be Around’, a series of new music nights with a name that really rolls off the tongue.
The very exciting Eat Fast will be appearing (get to know the group here), plus fuzzy force Chastity and the intriguing talent Jelani Blackman. And look out for those pesky special guests - you won’t want to miss them.
For the full line-ups, head below. Every show is free entry, 18+. And note that these are very unofficial pre-Great Escape parties, not affiliated with the lovely festival itself.
