Music & Entertainment with Joe Fuller
1 Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra’s new season at Brighton Dome has some real gems, including Ravel’s Piano Concerto on 3rd December with its sweet adagio amidst the stormy outer movements. The season opens with Romanian pianist Alexandra Dariescu performing Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1, Brahms’ Symphony No. 3 and Schumann’s ‘Genoveva’ overture.
Brighton Dome Concert Hall, 8 October, 2.45pm, £12-£38
2 Lorde’s latest album Melodrama is a strong pop record, and her date at Brighton Centre is refreshingly affordable compared to Beyonce and Rihanna kind of prices. Influences range from Lana Del Rey to James Blake and Grimes so there will be a diverse soundworld to explore in the concert.
Brighton Centre, 30 September, 6.30pm, £35.75
3 Godspeed You! Black Emperor are renowned for the intensity of their live shows, and at the time of writing there are still tickets available for the wildly influential post-rock band’s Dome concert. Recently released album Luciferian Towers is their most melodic yet, making this a perfect gig for the newcomer.
Brighton Dome Concert Hall, 23 October, 7pm, £25
4 I saw EMA over five years ago at Green Door Store and I loved the emotionally charged set of drone noise rock. Sticky Mike’s is a great intimate venue for the brilliant bandleader so this is a must for any fans of woozy shoegaze kinda stuff.

6 Go out for a laugh, and feel good about yourself too, that’s what charity nights are all about. With a cracking line-up of local acts headlined by the comedy character tour de force that is Joanna Neary (BBC Radio 4, Miranda) this is great way to raise funds for the North Laine Community Association. Hosted by Graeme Collard, plus great prizes to be won in the evening’s raffle.
