Green Mind presents GRANT-LEE PHILLIPS *rescheduled to 18th January 2022*

This event has been rescheduled to Tuesday 18th January 2022. All tickets remain valid.

I’m drawing on the urgency of the moment, reflects Grant-Lee Phillips. The things that eat away in the late hours That urgency inspired the headlong rush of Widdershins, in which Phillips invests the insight, nuance, and wit that has distinguished his songcraft over the past three decades in a riveting dissection of today’s fraught social landscape. With more than two decades’ experience first as frontman of the acclaimed Grant Lee Buffalo then and accomplished solo artist, Phillips awakens comfort and hope by shining light into darker corners. I hope to express my faith in people, my faith in the good ideas we’re capable of, and that regardless of what opposition we face, the fact that we can surmount these things, he concludes.

SOLD OUT Green Mind presents BAMBARA - RESCHEDULED TO JUNE 18TH

This event has been rescheduled from Monday 18th May 2020. All tickets remain valid.

One thing you won’t be able to avoid on Bambara’s Stray is death. It’s everywhere and inescapable, abstract and personified perhaps the key to the whole record. Death, however, won’t be the first thing that strikes you about the group’s fourth and greatest album to date. That instead will be its pulverising soundscape; by turns, vast, atmospheric, cool, broiling and at times on stand out tracks like Sing Me To The Street and Serafina simply overwhelming.

Egyptian Blue make music that is uncompromising yet uplifting. They channel modern anxieties and nervous energy into razor sharp guitar lines and post-punk grooves. Crafted originally above a jeweller’s shop in Colchester, the band then decamped to Brighton (UK) to develop their sound. Egyptian Blue are signed to Yala! Records.

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

An immersive wall of distortion envelopes the powerful fragility of frontman Kiran Roy’s vocals, while he paints a verbal landscape of introspection, despair and hope amid a sonic palette that evokes both the driving, spacious absorptivity of My Bloody Valentine and the poetic, visceral honesty of Nick Cave’s lyricism.

Green Mind presents DREAM WIFE ***SOLD OUT***
Apr 22 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Green Mind presents DREAM WIFE  ***SOLD OUT***

https://dreamwife.co/

Dream Wife started out as a fantasy… literally. Icelandic singer Rakel and British musicians Alice and Bella played their first show as part of a performance project at art school in Brighton. Stuck in dreams of 90s club kid nostalgia they continue on making music, embracing their love for edgy pop. Dream Wife name David Lynch’s women as a big influence; ‘powerful and seriously f***ed up’.

They play with the aesthetics of the 1960’s yé-yé girls movement, along with current influences such as Sleigh Bells, Le Tigre and Grimes. Dream Wife ooze with girl power; infecting the crowd with their trademark ‘poolside pop with a bite.’ The music juxtaposes simple pop hooks, beats, cutting riffs and dreamy vocals.

Noble Jacks + guests
May 13 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

*This date has been rescheduled from 19th April/ 6th Dec, tickets purchased for either of those shows are valid for this date*

One of the finest bands on the Americana/Alt Folk circuit, Noble Jacks are coming to The Portland Arms, straight off the back of their sell out tour with The Dead South.

With the fiddle leading the charge, Noble Jacks are out to take no prisoners with their high-energy footstompin’ rhythms, which have taken crowds by storm across the UK.

2017 saw the release of Noble Jacks’ debut album What the Hammer to much acclaim. A fiddle driven thrill ride, the band set out to capture the raw energy of their notoriously hectic live shows. Achieving radio play internationally, including support from BBC Introducing and Radio Caroline, the riotous album has become a firm fan favourite.

Since this point Noble Jacks have been touring relentlessly, with sold out shows across the UK on their headline tours, as well as shows at major festivals including Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Bestival, plus major European festivals. With their second album, Stay Awake, released Spring 2019, the Jacks went straight into the top 10 Official UK Americana Album Charts – with a sold out Concorde2, Brighton (650 cap) launch party.

Hailed as the finest purveyors of folk-influenced Americana, the band were invited to showcase at this years Americana Fest in Nashville where they went down a storm!
