Here’s a quick round-up of our top-tips for this week’s live action around Hastings from Monday 18 to Sunday 24 February 2019.

Monday 18 Feb:

If you are a musician or a fan we’d recommend getting down to Crowley’s on Monday night for their regular open mic night. The quality is always high, and the venue is a friendly space to chill with friends.

Tuesday 19 Feb:

Tuesday’s are tough – the weekend seems so far away! Why not beat the blues with a slice of quality folk music at The Stag?

Wednesday 20 Feb:

OK – so you missed out on tickets to Kaiser Chiefs in Bexhill – don’t despair, there’s still fun to be had at The Drift In Cafe Bar

Thursday 21 Feb:

It’s a tough call tonight – do you head to The Jenny Lind for RX Shantymen, Brass Monkey for The Wingmen, or Kino Teatr for Pepe Belmonte, Jason McNiff and Emma Tricca? It’s a close call and we know whereever you go you’ll have a great time…

Friday 22 Feb:

You’d be bonkers to miss the Austerity Records launch at Blackmarket VIP with Idles providing DJ action – but then maybe Mighty Sounds at Oscar’s on the Square is more your cup of tea? Alternatively, if you happen to prefer Bexhill and the latest offering from William the Conqueror then De La Warr Pavillion is for you…

Saturday 23 Feb:

We’d be failing in our duty to keep you entertained if we didn’t stress how important it is that you head to the Jenny Lind on Saturday for The Belles. Expect a proper party, with open mic action for starters followed by the full band – and you’ll struggle to spot where the classic covers stop and the amazing original songs begin. Of course you may want to sample the equally brilliant Melissa Etheridge at Bexhill or explore the wonders of The Mystic Shed at On the Rocks – the choice is entirely yours… oh – did we mention the Brass Monkey’s 16th birthday bash and the fact that Crowley’s are hosting Wytch Pycknyck and Wizard Sleeve… decisions decisions!!

Sunday 24 Feb

Pop down to Teddy’s Beach Diner at lunchtime for Stef Charles, then check the drag show at On the Rocks, before spinning over to Bexhill for Ward Thomas … now that sounds like a full day of fun!
