Live – Divorce | Safety Jacket | Ladylike at The Hope & Ruin Brighton

Divorce, Safety Jacket & Ladylike at The Hope & Ruin, Brighton, 11th October 2022

Back in March, Divorce played in the bar downstairs at The Hope & Ruin. They undoubtedly made a good impression, as this time round they filled the bigger space upstairs with their subtly sanguine post-punk tunes and a hugely enthusiastic crowd. Although still relatively early days in their musical union, it seems Divorce have found their niche and their followers, even playing a second rendition of Services to allow an audience member to take over drum duties.

In support, Safety Jacket’s camaraderie is obvious as they perform their new songs with growing confidence, and openers Ladylike impressed on only their third gig.
