Free and Cheap Things to do Brighton February 2016Splitting the Atom – Green Door Store

Eight hours of free mental noise/avant/jazz/minimal/whatever. One of the great things about StA is that at least a third of the bands have formed for the event so you know it’s new and exciting. A cursory look reveals Occult Hand are playing. A band even more frightening than their name suggests. As are Thee Bald Knobbers. A band so anonymous they get strangers on stage to fill the numbers.
