Harvs Le Toad x Hutch x Louis Loan: Doner Kebab

Straight out of Brighton comes a cheeky little promo video, for the Ultra Sound event which takes place tonight at Coalition. Harvs Le Toad, Hutch and Louis Loan have put together a lovely little ode to the nation’s favourite post-pub pre-scrap food choice. I know it’s a bit late for a promo video, but it doesn’t kick off until 11pm so head down if you’re in the area. Pete & Bas, Dirty Dike, Sammy B-Side and Pete Cannon are all on the bill so it’s going to be a lively one. Shout out to my Off Licence Magazine family for putting the video out.

Pipeline Live @ Concorde 2: Fliptrix, Coops, Confucius MC & More

AudioActive: Bottega Rooms Crowdfunder

You may remember at the start of the year, I put up a piece about AudioActive, the Brighton-based charity that specialises in getting young people involved in making music. Well now they have a new mission and they are in need of our help. The opportunity to move into and develop a large, currently vacant space in Brighton has arisen, which if successful will lead to the expansion of their resources and in turn the number of young people they are able to help and ultimately embolden.
