Week 7: CELEBRATING BRIGHTON PRIDE WEEKEND

We’re celebrating Brighton Weekend with special sets from Revenge and guest streams from UWS Australia, Asia, Georgia and Germany

United We Stream Brighton continues to showcase some of the city’s best local artists and venues to help raise money to keep the city’s nightlife alive.

On Thursday we link up with our friends United We Stream Asia to support a special stream. This weekend would have been Brighton Pride, where people from far and wide come to celebrate and unite for love. Although gay rights have globally become more liberal with more and more countries recognising same-sex marriage, homosexuality is still illegal in Malaysia, talks and events about gay rights are constantly dismissed. Every Pride, or whenever public conversation turns to the subject of homosexuality, Malaysians who are LGBT fear for their lives. That’s why we are supporting the LGBTQ community in Malaysia and fight for their rights, raising awareness and giving them visibility!

On Saturday to mark the Brighton Pride weekend we have a special takeover from Revenge with sets from Arthur Hutchinson B2B Bertie Clarke with your favourite pop anthems, house anthems with Dazwell, disco vibes on the roof terrace with Toby Lawrence and special drag performances from Daphne, Lydia L’Scabies, Rob From Finance, Tayris Mongardi.

Continuing the Pride theme on Sunday we welcome guest streams from UWS Australia, Asia, Georgia and Germany. UWS Sydney kick things off with the House of Mince. Over the last nine years, House of Mince has thrown parties unlike any other in Sydney. House of Mince’s atmosphere of elation and freedom comes from impeccable curation of DJs and the Mince crowd that congregate with an infectious eagerness to dance and rejoice in togetherness. Partly because of House of Mince’s partnerships with Berlin institutions Berghain and Cocktail D’amore, Mince fosters a like-minded queer community to that of its Berlin counterparts. UWS Tbilisi presents a performance from Georgian National Center of Music and Performing Arts, dedicated to all humans, collectives and movements who are fighting against injustice and supporting queer communities, artists, producers and clubs. Mixing music and fashion UWS Bremen share 3 sets filmed in a clothes shop with Stefan Tews, Rria and Randel Stone.

UWS Brighton continues to grow with over 850,000 views, showcasing Brighton’s talent to the world and reminding us of all the venues that are closed and we are missing during this time.

The music will continue over the coming weeks including more bands, so keep an eye out on the website social media pages for the upcoming line ups. Acts to look forward to include; Mystery Jets, Penelope Isles, Flyte, Bess Atwell, Electric Soft Parade, The Wytches, Egyptian Blue, LIME, Otzeki, Ebi Soda, Speelburg, CLT Drop, Skinny Milk, Wax Works, comedienne Jess Robinson and many more!

WEEK 6: HERE COME THE BANDS!

Bands take centre stage in this weeks line up for United We Stream Brighton with Demob Happy, Porridge Radio, Three Button Hand Me Down and more.

United We Stream Brighton continues to showcase some of the city’s best local artists and venues to help raise money to keep the city’s nightlife alive.

This week it’s time for the bands to shine as social distancing rules are relaxed and they can finally get on stage and into venues to play the music loud and remind everyone how much they miss live music. 

Starting off the Friday night programme we have two fine residents from local party Missing People in Tom Luka & Stone Collins.  You can find the Missing People crew doing their thing across the city at venues such as The Tempest Inn, Patterns & at their Sunday open decks sessions at tonight’s host venue Presuming Ed. The party mantra is simple, good music & good sound at inviting & interesting spaces. As DJs both bring a selection which traverses the house music spectrum perfectly suited to get you in the mood for the weekend. Jeni Hipkiss wraps things up at New Unity with some quality house music. 

On Saturday Gaydio’s Alex Baker and Toby Lawrence go back to back on the Revenge rooftop with tunes to get us in the Saturday night party mood. Then it’s over to Komedia for the bands to take centre stage with singer-songwriter Jarki Monno with his unique blend of electronic, hip-hop and jazz from Komedia.

Four-piece grunge/psych-rock band Demob Happy who are known for their raucous live shows and freewheeling spirit will excite viewers with their set playing tracks from their recent album ‘Holy Doom’. Following a landmark 2019  amassing over 8.8 million streams and with packed with an international touring schedule which included supporting Jack White, the trio are excited to get back on stage.  Next up is post-punk 4 piece Porridge Radio with all the rawness of early Karen O and influences as disparate as Charli XCX and The Cranberries. Pitchfork reviewed the band’s second album calling it “the sound of a band mercilessly digging into itself with a stunning, dynamic performance from singer-songwriter Dana Margolin

On Sunday Enter Art Gallery brings us two special performances from Three Button Hand Me Down, a brilliant trio comprising of Martin Duffy, keyboard player from Primal Scream, Charlotte Charlotte Courbe from  “Le Volume Courbe” and  Steve Mason, lead singer and one of the founding members of The Beta Band. Gary and The Yays are next up, an 80s pop obsessed punk idiot desperately trying to figure out life in general with a debut album ‘When I Grow Up To Be A Man’ available from Bandcamp. Then giving us all a much-needed laugh with a sketch from Komedia is the one and only Zoe Lyons.

United We Stream Brighton continues to grow with over 420,000 views, showcasing Brighton’s talent to the world and reminding us of all the venues that are closed and we are missing during this time.

The music will continue over the coming weeks including more bands, so keep an eye out on the website social media pages for the upcoming line ups.

WHY WE’RE SUPPORTING GRASSROOTS…

Brighton-based charity, Grassroots, is a UK leader in suicide prevention. Formed in 2006, Grassroots supports individuals, organisations, and communities around the UK to develop the skills and confidence they need to save lives. Their approach is simple: get people talking openly and directly about suicide. When that happens, lives are saved.

They work in three ways:

  1. Influencing Change: they break down stigma and tell people that it’s OK to talk about suicide. In fact, it’s lifesaving.
  2. Educating: they teach people to identify those at risk and carry out effective suicide interventions.
  3. Connecting: they help people easily access support by signposting to lifesaving services.

They have trained over 17,000 people, helping them to become ready, willing, and able to support someone in crisis. The training works. 75% of participants report using their skills to support someone within six months of the training. 72% say they used the skills to keep someone safe from suicide. Grassroots estimates their training has helped save at least 12,000 people from suicide

They developed the pioneering suicide prevention app, Stay Alive. It’s been downloaded over 150,000 times and translated into 4 languages. It’s free, award-winning, endorsed by the NHS, and proven to help people keep themselves and others safe.

Community is central to Grassroots’ work. Connection; shared purpose; belonging: community is an incredibly effective protection against suicidal thoughts. Before lockdown, they ran monthly gig nights at local venues including The Rose Hill and The Hope And Ruin, often working with Brighton charity Gig Buddies. They know how important night-time venues are to communities, particularly Brighton’s. So, their mission aligns perfectly with United We Stream.

A report published last month by Oxford Economics and commissioned by the Creative Industries Federation, which was supported by UK Music, has suggested that without help, the music industry ‘is projected to lose at least £3 billion in GVA (50 per cent) and 60 per cent of jobs (114,000)’.

WHY WE’RE SUPPORTING AUDIOACTIVE…

As our livestream movement gathers more and more momentum, we are delighted that the support received is shared not only across Brighton nightlife but also with one of the most influential charities in the city.

Brighton music charity and organisation, AudioActive has been creating better futures through music for the best part of two decades. Providing completely free music sessions for young people across all of East Sussex, AudioActive provides access to music and art and uses it as a tool for social change.

Motives from the organisation do not only address societal issues but also seek to actively fix them. For example, Room To Rant, a men’s mental health project where rap and spoken word is used by young men to get things off their chest. Or Equaliser, a female-led project that teaches young women music production, seeking to level out the gender imbalance in the music industry.

AudioActive’s mission is set into two parts; social change and artist development, as young people also have the opportunity to gain the skills and guidance needed to make music into their career. Emerge, a musician-led artist development programme funded by the PRS Foundation is perhaps the best example of this.

The effect AudioActive has had on the Brighton & Hove and East Sussex music scene is hard to quantify, with many local artists having worked with them at one point or another. Rag N Bone stands as their most notable patron, while one of the organisation’s bases, the musical hub that is Bottega Rooms, ensures that we are only going to see more and more talent from this part of the world associated with AudioActive.

With donations for United We Stream Brighton also going to AudioActive, we’re happy to be securing not only the short term future of the city’s music scene but also the long-term future of it, too.

A movement that started in Berlin during lockdown that has spread to over 65 cities around the world, United We Stream Brighton will showcase the music, culture and free-thinking rainbow infused spirit to viewers at home, whilst raising money for the city’s night-time economy, cultural organisations and charities.

The idea is for locals as well as people around the world to enjoy and experience Brighton’s music, art and culture through the website and social platforms. United We Stream Brighton is free, but with donations welcome, and all proceeds will go to support bars, clubs, pubs, venues, restaurants, performers, freelancers and cultural organisations across Brighton & Hove as well as contributing to the fight against homelessness and the vital work undertaken by the Grassroots charity and Audio Active.

With over 70K views and performances from 12 artists in 6 different venues on the launch weekend, United We Stream Brighton delivered 4 days of quality music, showcasing some of the best local artists and venues.

Week 1 launched with homegrown label SKINT taking over the streams on Thursday 18th June with Rising star Kideko kickings things off at Norman Cook’s Big Beach Cafe, Dense & Pika performing in the British Airways i360 pod, with the finale being chart-topping duo Waze & Odyssey from the Brighton Centre. On Friday Sam Moffet from English Disco Lovers Stuart Wood served up some uplifting disco vibes from The Better Half, followed by some uplifting house beats from Seamus Haji with his signature Big Love sounds from The Tempest and the UK’s leading Scratch DJ and turntablist and DMC Champion JFB wrapping things up from the Brighton Centre. On Saturday long-standing Brighton based club night Berlin will present 4 hours of the finest underground electronic music vibes with Monica, Lola, Suze Rosser and club founder Markus Saarlander. Keeping things chilled on Sunday, Primal Scream’s Martin Duffy reminded us how we miss our favourite pubs with a DJ set from his local The Better Half, followed by blissed out vibes from popular seafront venue The Tempest with Flip Fantazia.

The music will continue over the coming weeks with a mixture of live and pre-recorded performances, so keep an eye out on the website social media pages for the upcoming line ups. Acts to look forward to include; Anthony Pappa, Billy Nasty, Freemasons, Freestylers Just Her, Kinky Dangerous, Krafty Kuts, Luke Brancaccio, Midfield General, Prok & Fitch, Steve Mason, Wax Works and many more!

Please donate what you can to raise money for Brighton’s nightlife, cultural organisations, charities and the fight against homelessness.

United We Stream Brighton will feature some of Brighton’s most-loved venues, streaming music and performances every weekend uniting the city during the coronavirus pandemic. Initiated by Berlin-Brighton, The Brighton Music Conference, and Global Publicity, United we Stream Brighton joins Manchester to fly the flag for the UK music industry showcasing our talent to the world and reminding us of all the venues that are closed and we are missing during this time. A recent article by the UK Theatre and Society of London Theatre, estimated that half of all music venues and 70% of theatres across the UK face permanent closure. Therefore donating and joining the movement to support our music, art and culture in Brighton is essential.
