FRIDAY 22ND JANUARY
The Real Music Club return to The Brunswick with a special, stripped back show for us with headliners Dandelion Charm being joined by a solo set from Tim Burness.
Dandelion Charm from Newhaven, England, blend folk, prog and rock, with a sound reminiscent of the late '60s and early '70's. Think Fleetwood Mac meets Opeth, CSN meets Yes.

Their latest album ‘Maybe Dreamers’ follows on from 2018’s five track mini-album, 'Riding the Flood', and their debut album 'Tiny Drop'.
Support comes from the illustrious Tim Burness who will be performing a stripped back, acoustic set to open the show with tracks from his albums 'Interconnected (2018)' and 'Whose Dream Are You living? (2017)'.
TIM STAFFELL AND PAUL STEWART
JANUARY 29TH (RESCHEDULED)
Tim Staffell was the lead singer and bassist of the now legendary sixties rock trio Smile, alongside guitarist Brian May and Roger Taylor. When he left to persue other musical projects in 1970 , his college friend Freddie Bulsara took his place as lead singer. The band changed their name to Queen and Bulsara changed his name to Mercury.
The 2018 biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody' depicts this chapter in history, portraying a gig where Smile performs 'Doin' All Right', which Staffell co-wrote with May (and was also recorded with Mercury for Queen's first album). Staffell supplied new vocals and bass parts for the movie and official soundtrack: 'Doing All Right - ...Revisited'.
Staffell has continued to write and perform original music in the decades since he left Smile, collaborating with luminaries such as drummer Colin Peterson (Bee Gees), keyboardist and composer Morgan Fisher, guitarist Snowy White and Chaz Jankel (Ian Dury & The Blockheads).
ORNATE ANTLERS (ACOUSTIC)
FEBRUARY 20TH (rescheduled)
After last year's launch party for the single "Princess Bubblegum", Ornate Antlers are excited to be back at The Brunswick for a first ever acoustic show and the first gig with new guitarist Joe recruited over the summer.
They'll be joined by band friends Binky, who'll be throwing in their foot-stomping ragged folk sounds for what should be a great evening!
Ornate Antlers' new single "When the Fonz jumped the Shark" will be released on the 31st October.
12 stone toddler
SAT 19TH DEC
12 Stone Toddler rock ... But remember when rock was anti-fashion, didn’t stay in neat little categories, represented deviation from the norm? Remember when rock plundered other genres and threw the bits into a hot cauldron? Remember when rock meant bands with nothing in common other than a liking for loud guitars, stomping beats, electric hooks?
12 Stone Toddler bring this ethic back into the modern world. A marriage of opposites, combining heady eclecticism with a love of the three minute wonder. All shiny and new, yet visited at night by the ghosts of 20th century music. Swaggering with the chutzpah of a naked child threatening to wedge a fork into the electrical socket, each twist and swivel brings a new reason to love this band.
With support from Fred Hills.
