Michelle Mildenhall – Brush Brighton

If you’re a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey, you’ll love Michelle Mildenhall’s work. Inspired by S&M and a love of latex, her works are what can only be described as raunchy, fetish-depicting pop art. While art in general is no stranger to what goes on behind closed doors, Michelle isn’t afraid to explore beyond the boundaries – in particular with her S&M Margaret Thatcher, in which the former PM’s trademark pearl’s are replaced with a studded collar. Brilliant!

Date/Time: 7th March – 3rd April |Tues-Sat 10am-6pm

Velvet Morning + The New Tusk + Morning Smoke + The Glugg – Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar

Velvet Morning are originally from Southend-on-Sea, a sleepy town suited to their range of dozy soul; the word ‘psychedelic’ fits them for sure.  Slow burning drums and echo drenched arpeggiated guitar rhythms intertwine with hints of middle eastern scales and sounds.  Luminous lyricism and swirly singing deliver mantric tantric chantings abound, swirling effortlessly around the honeysuckle guitarings and tribal drums to lull the listener into a dream-like trance.

Date/Time: 10th March | 7.30pm

Free Things To Do In BrightonDanger Music Presents: Bleach Blood + The Gospel Youth + Montrose + Feet First – The Hope & Ruin

With the release of debut album All Sides of a Circle on the horizon, Bleach Blood’s modus operandi has never been clearer: the London five-piece, led by Jamie Jazz, strive to incorporate the kinetic energy of dance music with the passion of Jazz’s punk-rock songwriting. But while the band’s unique punk-electro-rock hybrid may have the vigour, venom and drive of a band clear in their convictions, the path ahead wasn’t always so straightforward. Support comes from The Gospel Youth, Montrose & Feet First.
