As the weekend sneaks up once again, we have a handful of gigs to tell you about so that you can get the most out of your evenings off.

PICK OF THE WEEKEND – Demob Happy @ Concorde2 – Sat 2 Mar

The Brighton-via-Newcastle trio wrap up a big UK tour with a headline show at Concorde2 on Saturday night. Recent single “Less is More” is a dreamy grunge-rock odyssey that comes less than a year after their recent sophomore record, Holy Doom. Support comes from Sick Joy and Heirloom, and tickets cost £10 in advance from Song Kick. Doors open at 19:00.

The Dirty Cassettes @ Green Door Store – Fri 1 Mar

Local fuzzy-rock quartet The Dirty Cassettes headline Green Door Store on Friday night. Vocalist Millie Cook has an unapologetically British rasp in her delivery, backed by a nostalgic telecaster-driven wall of sound. Support comes from Bokito, Josh Robinson and Ahsoka. Tickets can be purchased in advance or on the door for £5, with BIMM students getting a discount down to £3. Doors open at 19:00.

BRONCHO @ Patterns – Sat 2 Mar

Oklahoma based four-piece BRONCHO travel to Brighton in support of their latest record, Bad Behaviour. The playful indie-rock bounces along to lead singer Ryan Lindsey’s joyful-yet-deadpan voice, with a collection of tracks that are perfectly suited to this unprecedented February sunshine. Tickets cost £13.75 in advance from Dice. Doors open at 19:00.

Death Valley Girls @ The Haunt – Sat 2 Mar

A mixture of psychedelic rock, screeching guitar lines and infectious hooks make Death Valley Girls ones to watch this weekend as they take over The Haunt. Every track is an earworm of distortion drenched joy, with Saturday marking the beginning of the UK leg of their tour. Tickets cost £8 in advance from See Tickets, or £10 on the door. Doors open at 19:00.

VIRVUM @ Green Door Store – Sun 3 Mar

Swedish technical-death metal band VIRVUM begin their UK tour this Sunday at the Green Door Store. Intricate, mesmerising guitar-work and perfected blast beats are all over the band’s music as they push the boundaries of what metal can be. The gig sees support from Scottish metal band Godeater, as well as Abhorrent Decimation and Embodiment. Tickets cost £10 in advance or £14 on the door. Doors open at 19:00.
