Cheese icon Paul Young, neo-punkers Kinesis, Mercury nominee Susheela Raman and high concept from The Cinematic Orchestra are our picks.

THE CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA, Brighton Dome, June 6: A sensuous mix of DJs, jazz musicians and a classic silent movie, Dziga Vertov's Man With A Movie Camera, which portrays a witty take on life in the Soviet Union in the Twenties. Building on a musical blueprint by composer/programmer Jason Swinscoe, the event mixes Seventies jazz, soundtracks, rhythm loops and remixes of the likes of Coldcut as well as improvisations by live musicians. Starts 8pm, £12.50/£10. Call 01273 709709.

KINESIS, Concorde 2, Brighton, June 7: These four Bolton lads met at school, united by a common love of guitars and politics and by September 2000 had formed the band as a vehicle to express their views on society. Their power-punk laced with fury has been compared with the early Manic Street Preachers and praised by Radio 1, Kerrang! and NME. Starts 7pm, tickets £7. Call 01273 772770 for more details.

PAUL YOUNG, Assembly Hall, Worthing, June 12: This Eighties icon, remembered for Every Time You Go Away and Wherever I Lay My Hat, comes to Worthing with old and new material. Although he is less in the public eye than days gone by, Paul has been busy with a band, Los Pacaminos, who released an album last year. Starts 8pm, tickets £14.50/£16.50. Call 01903 206206.

SUSHEELA RAMAN, Corn Exchange, Brighton, June 11: Born in the UK to southern Indian parents and with an Australian childhood, this songstress' music has been shaped by her heritage. Drawing on traditional Tamil music with a taste of jazz, folk and pop, Susheela came to mainstream attention with a surprise nomination for the Mercury Prize for her album Salt Rain in 2001. Starts 8pm, tickets £12.50/£10. Call 01273 709709.
