Oli Spleen Showcase at Brighton Arts Club

Last night' open Mic possibly rivals all others as we had a grand mix of uni students and mature orators with much to tell.

One chap, named Paul, performed improvised pieces lying on the floor demanding sun for his bean sprout......It was quite amazing and I wish I had filmed it. I did ask but he declined as the camera affects what omits from the heart, as we all know.

Today, after my usual 3 coffees, I am moving furniture again ready for the Oli Spleen showcase.

Oli has rehearsed his decent from the ladder and we foresee no problems....I will have the disclaimer ready.....

....see you tonight bitches and cads, hos and vagabonds, virgins and slags....7pm at my gaff

Brighton Fringe Fringe

Charges to participate in the regular Brighton Fringe have sent us spinning into disarray at the club.......over £100 for each event just to appear on the website!

In revolt we have a month of free events where artists can show, play, perform and take full advantage of our amazing exhibition space.

Our Launch Party is on the 4th May from midday and we launch a great mixed arts show. We are still accepting art and the club asks 30% of sales.

We have numerous musicians also lined up so if you are keen to perform please give me a call as we want to offer as much as we can to as many as we can throughout the month.

Open Mic at Brighton Arts Club

Thursday is our open mic day at the club which is a mix of spoken word and musicianship.
Our open mic nights are unusual in that we take turns and there is no list. It is a very friendly and informal event that is run by Joel who also sets weekly homework though this is optional and may be carried through any medium including art and performance. It is actually rather nice to have a discipline on occasion.
The VIP bar is open with great deals and we are open till at least 11pm.
Time permitting I do a piece of art though this week I am a bit slack........oops.

OPEN MIC AT BAC every Thursday from 7pm-11pm
