Birds, Boats and Brighter Later

Brighter Later is back! Now the fourth in a series of charity gigs held at The Boogaloo, we’re aiming to raise even more money than before for Teenage Cancer Trust! Here’s who we have lined up for you this time:


A bluesy four piece originating from Brighton we're so excited about Ice Black Birds acoustic set. Drawing influences from 60s and 70s rock ‘n’ roll they formed from the ashes of old London, Sheffield and S
cottish bands and seem set to bring a fresh burst of modern blues back into the industry. The boys will be showcasing some new songs that will no doubt be as catchy as the rest.



An anti-folk band best described as Bob Dylan meets Lightspeed Champion/Eugene McGuiness with the lyrical style of Regina Spektor or Win Butler. Beautifully written songs that will stay with you long after you leave. Come see their unique stripped back set with us!



The Semaphore sound is solidly underpinned by Louis Brennan’s unmistakable deep, dark and gravel lined baritone that hints maturity far beyond his years. They grew from roots of blues, up through the bedrock of sorrowful story telling with a galvanizing country growl.



Her influences pull together deep smooth soul, tender folk blues and playful Caribbean rhythms. There is a consistent thread of British urban folk throughout her songs and her smooth vocals leave a lingering feeling of peace. See her live and you’ll fall for her as much as we have.


Adding a unique flair to the night is shamanic poet, professional nursery-rhymer and regular Brighter Later compere, Robert Price. He will be introducing the bands with bursts of energy and entertaining you while the bands set up behind him.

The fabulous ClubRees DJs (host of the legendary indie disco at The Fly) will be kicking out the jams throughout the afternoon and into the evening whilst we party, powered by that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing your support is helping to change young people’s lives all over the country.

The afternoon kicks off at 4pm, with the first of the bands from 5pm. Its only £5 and every penny raised will go to Teenage Cancer Trust!

See you there!
