Brighton night heads on the road, bound for Ramsgate, Southend and their hometown, with Kemper Norton and more

The Outer Church, Brighton's excellent night of leftfield music and art, have announced another tour, this time a three-date run along the south coast. It's taking place this month, and sees them headed to Ramsgate Music Hall on September 12, the Railway Hotel in Southend-on-Sea, 13, and homeward bound for Brighton's Green Door Store, 14.

On the bill will be Kemper Norton, "slurtronic folk" artist and Quietus interviewee, The Lowland Hundred, who "access a current of melodic experimentation reminiscent of Robert Wyatt, Talk Talk, The Blue Nile and Scott Walker" as Joseph Stannard, Outer Church founder and tQ contributor, writes, alongside Brighton's Lutine, who "deliver tales of sex, death and enchantment via pitch-perfect harmonies and beautifully minimal arrangements". Each night will be opened by psychogeographer Gareth Rees, reading a new piece about "the weird magic of the British coastline".
