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