Music & Entertainment with Joe Fuller
1 The Moonlandingz are a collaboration between Fat White Family and Eccentronic Research Council, and their album features Yoko Ono & many other guests. The much hyped band play The Haunt this week so get a ticket if you want to say you were there before they were big big big.
The Haunt, 13 July, 7pm, £14
2 Joyce Manor ply a pop punk trade, sounding a bit Weezer in recent single Last You Heard Of Me for example. Support comes from power pop outfit Martha (pictured), who were personally invited by Billy Bragg to play Glastonbury. It’s always a joy to get a well-matched support band to create a good atmosphere at a gig so this should be a jangly, poppy, big chorusy night out.
The Haunt, 14 July, 7pm, £10
3 Treat yourself to Shakespeare in the park, with the classic tale of misplaced love, fairies, and a man with a donkey’s head. Bring your rugs, your camping chairs and your picnics for this magical story under the stars.
Highdown Gardens, Worthing, 11-16 July, 7.30pm with weekend matinees at 2pm, £16/8
4 The Pretend Men bring their comedy blockbuster to Hove, taking us back to 1976 where straight-laced rookie cop Jimmy Johnson is set on avenging his brother’s death. With a disgraced renegade partner at his side, the pair dig deeply into the murky details of the case.
The Old Market, 13 July, 8pm, £12.50/10
Comedy with Victoria Nangle
5 Your chance to catch the Best Comedy winner from this year’s Brighton Fringe – Alice Marshall, with her fantastic show ‘Blood’. Mixing character comedy with clowing, and shot through with wickedly biting truth about the human condition – Marshall’s show is deeply personal and yet widely relateable. And funny. Most definitely funny. This is part of a double bill, and joined by Edd Hedges’ ‘The Next Three Days’ after an interval.
Komedia, Friday 14 July, 7.30pm, £8
6 ‘Tis the season to bring satire to Shoreham in the guise of The Treason Show. Clearly there’s no way to guess what could be included at this point, with the speed of major news developments unfolding. But we wouldn’t be surprised if there was some mention of a Coalition, Jeremy Corbyn’s rock’n’roll credentials (go Glasto!), President Trump’s latest decisions, and of course a closer look at the local big news too.
Ropetackle, Friday 14 July, 8pm, £16
Arts with Brighton’s Arty
7 Get the beers in. If you’re already looking forward to the next Bank Holiday a stroll around the Arundel Art Trail (with a pit stop or two) is a must. A star attraction of the town’s annual Festival, it’s the chance to see beautiful houses and gardens not normally open to the public, and whether you’re a serious art collector or looking for an artwork to ‘match the sofa’, there’s something for everyone. For the past three years, in collaboration with Arundel Brewery, Gallery Trail artists have been invited to provide artwork that could be used for beermats. This year Arundel Brewery have gone a step further and asked for designs for a beer can. The limited-edition beer will be for sale from late July until the end of the Festival in August. Cheers! From 19 to 28 August.
