All the unmissable gigs in and around Bristol this week.
The Exchange – 25/11
Some fun up-tempo funk pop is coming around on Monday. Omar Apollo is a brand new artist with a fun and fresh sound. It will be worth leaving your house to enjoy something joyful and colourful in this cold weather.
Tickets: The Exchange
SWX, Bristol – 26/11
An old legend of the early 2010’s is coming to Bristol at SWX. With his heart on his sleeve and an aggressive style, he is someone that you really don’t want to miss. This is the kind of person you want to see even if only for the sake of saying you have seen them. At £18.50 it won’t break the bank, and after the show you won’t be thinking about the price that you have paid.

Rough Trade, Bristol – 26/11
Fans of Talking Heads jagged pop rejoice, there’s a new band to enjoy. Their new album released only last month is fantastic! Go and see this band before they become massive. They will be playing at Rough Trade for a smaller, more intimate gig. If you enjoy post-punk music with a good ear for hooks, go and watch them now for only £10.50, before you have to pay triple the price.
Tickets: Rough Trade
Fat White Family
The Tramshed, Cardiff – 27/11
One of the best live bands that are going at the moment! If you like punk music that is at the same time aggressive and pop focused, this is a show you don’t want to miss. Yes, it is in Cardiff, but trust me, this band is not worth missing.
O2 Bristol – 28/11
Some ’80s tongue-in-cheek rock is coming to Bristol this week. Go and relive your love of gay bars and danger! High voltage at the O2 this week. If you remember those two songs you might as well go, you know you are going to enjoy yourself.
Tickets: O2 Academy
Hip Hop Coffee Shop Sessions #9
Boston Tea Party, Stokes Croft – 29/11
Some genuine underground hip-hop with some of Bristol’s best will be playing at Boston Tea Party. It’s always a packed night, and worth the price of admittance just to see a show in Boston Tea Party, which I can say, is a surreal experience.
Personal Best with guests
The Canteen – 30/11
Some fantastic punk art rock bands playing at The Canteen on Saturday. It’s free entry and a wonderful venue. If you enjoy the stranger side of music, you owe yourself to go out and see this.
August Burns Red
SWX – 29/11
For my fellow metal heads there is a classic metalcore band coming into town. August Burns Red have been putting out material and touring from 2003. A great tight band that will blow you away and crush your ear drums.
She Makes War
The Louisiana – 30/11
Fun, quirky art pop local is having a show on Saturday, and it will be a hoot! Strange, yet enjoyable, it will be a gig you won’t forget for a while.
