Bordello are going from strength to strength with
their heady mix of transcontinental gypsy music
crossed with a punk attitude.
A year ago they first visited Brighton as part
of a concert involving a number of bands. Standing
out amongst the rest they returned to headline
a sell out gig at the prestigious Brighton Dome.
Lout Promotions called in Alstublieft Audio
to tackle the sound in this venue where time
and time again other companies have failed to
come up with good results.
Audio only stock Noise Control Audio PA systems
and were confident with the equipment they held
that the problem
could be resolved, just given this opportunity.
The Concert hall
has a beautiful 1935 art deco interior. Its capacity
of nearly 2000 is divided into standing floor
space and a huge 1200 seat balcony high around
some thought it was decided to go for a mixture
of flown and ground stacked speakers. The latter
to feed the standing crowd and the former to feed
directly to the balcony space.
Both systems were identical but shared just 6
sub cabinets between
The formation of each cluster was 3 round - 2
deep giving 80 degrees of dispersion from each.
Angling the ground stacks more inward and the
flown more outward gave complete coverage into
every corner of the venue both upstairs and down
with no need for any delay speakers or infills!
also provided complete stage monitoring utilising
Noise Control audio MPM and SW15 series speakers.
Also, they supplied 2 FOH mixing consoles a monitor
console and all effects units, microphones, ancillaries,
stage hands and engineers for a complete production
LOUT promotions, the band and the attending crowds
could not have been happier with the results.The
sound throughout the venue was clear, deep and
engrossing. LOUT Promotions have confirmed that
they will continue to use Alstublieft and Noise
Control Audio for future events notably the Gary
Newman concert at the same venue in March.
The crew from Noise Control Audio (myself included)
could not resist coming along to this event and,
although they should have grown up by now, where
spotting leaping around in the mosh pit like a
bunch of teenagers!
We would like to thank all those involved in this
production and give our wholehearted support to
Gogol Bordello and their Gypsy Punk Revolution!
