Week in Gigs – 13th February 2012

The Wiyos
This week’s pick of the live music going on in Bristol. My top pick is The Wiyos (above) on Sunday at the Tunnels…

Spotify Playlist – Bristol Gigs 13-02-2012

Monday 13th
If sentimental pop balladry is your thing then James Morrison plays the Colston Hall this evening (hey it’s the day before Valentines Day so who am I to judge). Oh wait, it’s sold out. Bad luck. Might I suggest instead some Scottish-accented indie rock from The Twilight Sad at The Fleece instead.

Tuesday 14th
Hmmm, well if you’re heading out to a gig tonight with a significant other, I don’t think there’s anything particularly romantic for you. Unless you share a love of Glaswegian electro (or “post-electro” apparently), in which case there’s Errors, again at The Fleece.

Wednesday 15th
If you’re on a mission to only see Scottish bands this week then there’s 80s rockers Big Country at O2 Academy. Or if you’re on a mission to only see electro, there’s Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs at Thekla. Alright then, how about Rich Robinson (of The Black Crowes) at The Fleece.

Thursday 16th
Fans of high beeps and low wobbles (dubstep) will be excited about Skrillex at O2 Academy tonight (sold out) but I’d go for genre-defying French outfit Underground Railroad at The Louisiana.

Friday 17th
The Louisiana have the catchy hooks of Australian Joel Sarakula, while over at The Cube Cinema they’ve got hipster favourites High Places who will be building soundscapes from a huge array of “instruments”.

Saturday 18th
Pulled Apart By Horses will be rocking The Fleece. For something a bit less heavy and a bit more tongue in cheek, there’s Milky Wimpshake at The Croft.

Sunday 19th
Today it’s got to be The Wiyos at The Tunnels. How often do you get to hear music like this live in Bristol…?
