Dub Pistols Live in Brighton review

Dub Pistols Live in Brighton review

Dub Pistols, Concorde 2, Madeira Drive, Brighton, Friday, November 28

If these guys haven’t reinvented and reinvigorated ska, no one can.

Despite years of being at the forefront of beats culture The Dub Pistols still sounded as fresh and exciting as when they burst onto the scene back in 1996.

Their riotous blend of ska, dub, hip-hop, breakbeat, punk and drum & bass makes them a surefire festival favourite but happily the band’s unique sound translated just as well to the Concorde 2.

A strong electro /dance vibe dominated much of this extensive set on this their second last date of an extensive UK tour, and the result was an audience with more smiles than a Cheshire Cat convention.

Renderings of The Stranglers’ classic Peaches and Madness’s Night Boat To Cairo whipped the crowd into a frenzy early on and there was no let up in the energy stakes for the besuited and booted fellows on stage, with favourite track Cyclone just one of a myriad of songs belted out by the crowd as well as the band.

Some true hands in the air moments, some good natured riffing with the audience and a rousing encore ensured it was the perfect Friday night gig.

This was their ninth appearance in Brighton. May there be many more.

Get ya Freak on in Bristol

Get ya Freak on in Bristol

10749071_316838995166234_1265009289_nSo after the success of their first summer festival back in May, which sold out in a whopping 9 days, the Shindig guys are back and this time its all getting a bit freaky for Halloween.

Having headlined their summer event we are delighted to have been invited back to party with them once again.

But this event is like nothing we have seen before. They have taken over the Old Crown Courts in Bristol, a building that has been derelict for over 30 years.

They have been allowed to host this special one off event inside this amazing venue. In the courts the judges have been replaced by DJs and the jury replaced by ravers. If that wasn’t enough to blow you mind, they are opening up the cells beneath the courts. The old Bristol Prison in basement will be your playground to explore and party till dawn.

Never before has an event like this been in a venue steeped in such history. It wont happen again and you don’t want to miss it…
