IMPRESSIVE PR UNVEILS ALTERNATIVE GREAT ESCAPE STAGE FOR 2018
‘IMPRESSIVE PR BY THE SEA’ ON FRIDAY 18TH MAY 12PM – 4PM
Last year Brighton baked in the sunshine for The Great Escape! Fingers crossed the same happens this year. This event looks to be a scorcher! Come rain or shine – The Black Lion situated in the Lanes in Brighton would seem to be the place to be. A great selection of artists performing for you, and did I forget to mention its FREE!
For the fifth year running, Impressive PR takes over The Black Lion on Friday 18th May with one of the highlight free showcases of The Alternative Escape. ‘Impressive PR By The Sea’ presents a carefully curated line-up of emerging acts including NOËP, Bakers Eddy, Yukon Era, Thom Artway, a special headline set by Diesel Park West’ John Butler and favourite UK breaking acts, LIFE. Covering a diverse range of genres, the showcase is seven-strong exhibition of international acts, with the addition of award-winning music journalist, broadcaster and DJ Simon Price behind the decks!
Just check out the line up!
Diesel Park West frontman and chief songwriter, John Butler, headlines the stage this year to celebrate the vinyl reissue of his critically acclaimed 1997 solo album ‘The Loyal Serpent’. The legendary Leicester band released 7 albums between 1989 and 1995, ushering in the 60s-revitialist, “baggy” movement with the likes of The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays. With a keen eye on song-craft, much like contemporaries Neil Finn (Split Enz, Crowded House) and Mike Scott (The Waterboys), Butler and Diesel Park West heralded a new generation of UK alternative rock, which soon became a global phenomenon. After spending 21 years off the radar, the American label, Palo Santo Records, has taken what Q Magazine called “intoxicating alchemy of Celtic-like passion” and delicately remastered and reassembled the parts for a 2018 audience in glorious gatefold, double-LP wax.
