Concorde2 is one of Brighton’s smaller but popular music venues

With bands such as The Maccabees, Foals, The Kooks, South Central, Joe Lean and the Jing Jang Jong and of course one of the town’s most famous sons Norman Cook, means Brighton has a rich pool of talent to draw on.

All of the above have played at the Concorde2, a former Victorian reading room which as been reincarnated in its lifetime as fish & chip, and doughnut and tea stalls and even a biker bar, the 540-capacity venue has just celebrated it’s key-to-the-door on its 21st birthday with a party was awash with Brighton talent , including electro-popsters Transformer, Floors and Walls and electro hip-hop band Son of Robot, as well as the UK’s biggest burlesque troupe the Boutique Theatre. The Levellers, Lethal Bizzal and Joe Lean And The Jing Jang Jong are also lined up to help pop the champagne corks.

The Concorde2 has also been home to the White Stripes first ever UK performance, Jarvis Cocker’s solo and semi-secret comeback gig and the rare feat of Pete Doherty being nice to fans and fellow Babyshambles’ band members. Brighton institution Fat Boy Slim famously launched his career at the venue.

The fact that the family-run venue is a bit further along the seafront is a boon insists co-owner Tina Haynes, who has been working at the Concorde2 for 13 years. “You don’t fall into the Concorde2, it has no passing trade-it’s the seagulls and us- so you are only there if you want to be. It means the crowd is not diluted, which performers love and the crowd gets what they get what they asked for.” Plenty of parking and no neighbours makes the venue popular with artists as well as punters.
