Photobucket Photobucket Islet – Undertone // 23rd May 2011 Only the second gig of 2011 for Islet who have kept themselves fairly quiet since the buzz of their 2010 releases Celebrate This Place and Wimmy on their own Shape Records. They’re regularly (and quite rightly) cited as one of the best live bands in the UK and a hometown gig in Undertone (the basement of Ten Feet Tall) building up to their appearance at Primavera kinda does mean this is one of those unmissable gigs. For £4 you’d frankly be silly not to.

Photobucket Photobucket Alessi’s Ark – Green Door Store // 27th May 2011 A slight Great Escape hangover in that Brighton may not be quite as vibrant this week as it is usually live music wise, but it still has a lot to offer. Green Door Store should provide the perfect backdrop Alessi’s Ark, a month after the band’s second full-length release.
