With the thought of Easter fast approaching on Sunday 1st April and the discovery of an actual 12” vinyl picture disc record of a fried egg coming out on Saturday 21st April, we thought it would be an ‘eggs-er-lent’ idea to have an away day!
So we’re going to be heading off along the coast to the America Ground area of sunny Hastings on Sunday 27th May to visit the charismatic old Printworks in town, located at 14 Claremont, Hastings TN34 1HA.
The America Ground sounds an ‘eggs-citing’ name, but historically it was a no-mans land created by great storms in the 13th Century and became a tax free community of ramshackled homes and businesses on a shingle bank. The Printworks built there, came into being when it was constructed in 1878 and has been known as F J Parsons and The Observer Printworks.
Right then, that’s enough of the history lesson, back to business. The Brighton & Hove News music team are hoping for an ‘eggs-quisite’ evening out as we are going to be witnessing an intimate concert full of ‘eggs-cessive’ and ‘eggs-ceptional’ music from the one and only…………….The Lovely Eggs.
We reported on their Haunt concert in Brighton last November which was full of their Northern charm, which you can read here and we thoroughly enjoyed the set by the husband and wife (Holly Ross on guitar/vocals and David Blackwell on drums) psychedelic punks, that we needed more. Then along comes their brilliant ‘This Is Eggland’ album on 23rd February, that I simply couldn’t stop playing and now to top it off we’re off to Hastings.
We have been to the compact venue before and so the gig is certainly going to sell out, so if you want to beat the mass ‘eggs-odus’ then act very quickly by grabbing your tickets here.
In the meantime have a listen to this ‘eggs-emplary’ ‘eggs-quisite’ track to bide you over until then. It’s going to be an ‘eggs-traordinary’ night.
