Sunday Driver at the Tusk and Garter club, Brighton

We had a great time last week playing down at the Tusk and Garter club in Brighton (despite the dressing room being up three flights of stairs and having no lights…)

The Tusk & Garter club - a top night all round

The Proud Brighton Ballroom was a fantastic venue that fitted the vibe perfectly, and was packed out with a spectacularly stylish crowd dressed up to the nines in full Steampunk regalia.

Professor Elemental played host:

He's less blurry than this in real life

Joel and Amit from Sunday Driver did a little bit of sitar and tabla for the diners before the main event:

Nice to see they dressed up for the occasion...

Chandy and I also did some harp and vocal stuff, but obviously I have no photos of that…

Also on the bill was the lovely Marianna Harlotta, diva extraordinaire. I loved her set, particularly the operatic renditions of Ace of Spades and Psycho Killer:

And as a special treat, burlesque from the beautiful  Billie Rae:

Billie Rae, with most of her clothes still on I'm afraid

Our gig was just brilliant – thanks to everyone who came to see us and danced through the whole set. We had a great time on stage, and it was fun to road-test our new songs in front of such a fantastic crowd. Did anyone take any photos of us?

Sadly I had to leave to make a 3 hour drive home before I could watch much of Mr B, the Gentleman Rhymer. I was gutted to miss his ‘beef’ with professor Elemental, which is shaping up to be the biggest bustup in hip-hop since Biggie and Tupac.  Here’s Elemental’s new video, Fighting Trousers, by way of explanation:

A top night all round – thanks to Tarik for inviting us down, and to all the other acts.
