AGB Presents: Dred | Dxvl

AGB Presents: Dred | Dxvl

After the success of the last sell out show, October the 1st will follow it up with by far the biggest AGB show to date. Dred and DXVL* will co-headline the Brighton event with support from four other local musicians; Maczee P, Aaron King, Eva and JED. It's the perfect freshers event for Sussex and Brighton students to see the best of the local music scene.

Dred has established himself as one of the most lyrical underground rappers in the UK. He’s performed all over the country while supporting Arrdee on tour, racked up hundreds of thousands of streams with lyrically dense tracks like Cold World, Otis and Battles With My Mind as well as garnering a ton of industry respect along the way. Also headlining is DXVL*, who has risen through the ranks of the UK’s Alternative Rap scene. His trap infused style brings something creative and original to the table, earning him over 5 million streams on his hit song ‘Garms’, headline shows across the UK and many more accolades that continue to roll in. They’ll be supported by four Brighton based artists who are heavily involved in the city’s scene and each bring a completely different sound to the night, Maxcee P, Aaron King, Eva and JED. You can expect to hear a mixture of HipHop, UK Drill, R&B, Alternative Rap and UK Garage from seriously talented independent artists.

AGB (Avant-Garde Brighton) is platform that aims to promote Brighton based talent by hosting HipHop / Rap events, cyphers packed with underground rappers, a monthly radio show and a youtube channel that will upload music videos of all genres. The name is split into two key parts, Avant-Garde and Brighton. Firstly, the definition of Avant-Garde is ‘introducing new and experimental ideas and methods,’ which concisely encapsulates the main aim of AGB. A space for artists who are willing to take creative risks and push boundaries is arguably not offered from the bubble of the UK mainstream, this is something AGB hopes to change. Secondly, the Brighton part of the name explains the specific focus on the city’s music. Not only is the seaside city where the company originated but it also has one of the most diverse, inventive and exciting music scenes in the country. Since the rise of Arrdee and the lifting of lockdown restrictions there have been more eyes and ears on Brighton based Hip-Hop as well as more event promoters popping up to put on shows and a general expansion of an underground scene.

Anderson's inspired choice of stop-motion animation pays off in this beautiful and idiosyncratic adaptation of the well-loved children's tale. While kids may enjoy it, Anderson's typically arch humour is aimed more at their parents, who will also be impressed by the star-studded voice cast – Bill Murray as a badger lawyer anyone?

Royal Shakespeare Company: Richard III

Royal Shakespeare Company: Richard Iii
  • 2022
  • UK
  • Directed by: Gregory Doran
  • Cast: Arthur Hughes

Young Richard of Gloucester uses the chaos of the Wars of the Roses to begin his unscrupulous climb to power in this classic Shakespearean history of a king in the throes of jealousy and murder. Despite being manifestly unfit to govern, he overcomes each obstacle in his way to seize the crown, as King Richard III. But as those around him turn against him, and as his plans begin to unravel, where else can he turn as the Lancastrian opposition returns to drag the country into battle once more and put an end to Richard’s tyrannical rule. Richard III is a savagely comic analysis of the exercise of power, reminding us of the dangers of tyranny and our duty not to let it go unchecked.

3 Hours (incl. 10 Mins interval)
