The Brighton Hussy

Previews

Just a thought for the benefit of the polar bears - nitrous oxide, as contained in cream chargers (in places such as here) is becoming a bigger contributor to global warming, climate change than all of the deforestation in Brazil combined with all of the power stations in China and all of the cars in the USA....

 

Recipease Brighton is hosting an event for Qype - Sarah Drinkwater will be at the helm. I will be outside Recipease waving a placard and asking for my money. Or I may be inside stuffing tagliatelle into Qypers. That should garner positive reviews on Qype!

 

underground bingo It appears to show evidence of people drawing on each other and bingo. I think they are smashed and they are probably mates. It is dark, so let us assume it is underground. What more do you need to know?

 

Great Wall of Vagina. Vulva Love   Wall of vaginas. Five years, 400 vulva. That makes almost one labia a day! It's art with a social conscience or possibly just  headline grabbing, media savvy artsploitation. Think of genitals in a tank of formaldehyde, chainsawn in half ...

 

Back in Stockings

'Tis the season for going out - lots - but before you tire of the semi-seasonal tinsel-pub syndrome, go and do something interesting and different. It doesn't have to be just back-slapping and workmate-hugging. Why not let somebody else do all of the dancing for you?  ...

 

Xmas is almost upon us and you really can't buy too much useless crap for people that you don't really care about. Modern Toss Modern Toss lead the way in making and selling rubbishy nik naks for the unconcerned consumer. I have always beleived that if a gift serves a purpose then it ...

The Hussy's  inbox is an overflowing pit of PR releases.  I Had been ignoring all but the most appetising messages. That seems a bit of a waste and I am sure many nights worthy of a promotion slipped beneath me unnoticed. So, I have decided to chuck it all out there. If you have something to promote email events@thehussy.co.uk and ...

The Brighton Comedy Festival kicks off tomorrow, and it sort of appeared without me seeing it coming. Paramount Comedy pulled out of the festival because they didn't find it funny anymore. And it seems they took the ad spend with them. Google "Brighton Comedy Festival 2009"  The Hussy is on the first page, for any large event this place is normally ...

 

The Half Sisters, (c) Ben Petrucci  To be more precise it is Sister, Sister, Half Sister. But Bros allowed Craig to join in so there is family misnomer precedent in band names. Actually one third of the trio are half sisters so the name is 67% accurate. The Brighton band are fun. And ...

 

 It pleasures me to help promote the Brighton Live Music Festival. Why? because it is five days of FREE events that work to promote local artists. That means free gigs. WIN-WIN-all around. Brighton Live is a non-profit organisation which makes a pleasant change in a town filled with greedy fuckers. At the core of the festival is a showcase of new and ...

 

Put simply, it is a war between artists.

Reduce your carbon footprint by attending a chilled out acoustic night. No amps, no electricity, no global warming, happy polar bears. poster Of course "tipping point theory" tells us that we are already fucked and even teeny-weeny gerbil sized footprints can't save us. So, go and listen to sweet tunes. Three bands, ...

It's a bit like karaoke...except it's poledancing poleoke And just like Karaoke - some people will really take it seriously and others will cheese it up for their pals. But unlike karaoke - you can use it as an excuse to show your underwear to strangers in a bar. Poleoke takes place at the ...
