I came here to watch Dweezil Zappa and his ' Rocking Teenage Combo ' . I think Frank would have had the centres' sound engineers publicly flogged and wired for radishes up thge fundament. On the outside....looks OK , sandwiched between 'The Grand' and The Odeon.....inside looks OK but the Box Office is just a round desk and there's acres of space completely wasted. The concert hall....well I come from Poole and I actually worked in the Arts Centre now called 'The Lighthouse' (what a stupid name) and the Wessex Hall was magnificent. The Brighton Centre auditorium looks like a pub set-up but larger. There's no fixed seating (AFAIK) just chairs and the acoustics were terrible. The PA came from the Battersea PA home of very sick PAs and needed shooting at the end. It was embarressing for Dweezil and us but we loved the music and just got by with our memories and the actuality of listening to Dweezil playing. Next time I won't be here. Next time I'll ask Dweezil to consider Bournemouth (which I hate as much as Brighton) or even Poole. If you want to listen to music then don't come here.
