Come one and come all to the Red Lion in Whitehall this Sunday 18th May, where a dazzling array of talent will perform their popular music songs for your delight, and all in aid of helping us keep The BRISTOLIAN a free paper full of the news you won’t read in the Nazi Post (until three months later)!
It all kicks off at half seven, and for a mere five of your English pounds (none of Fergo’s funny money, thanks) you’ll get five fine acts performing for your discerning enjoyment: Hater UK performing as Cider Riot, local militant ska-punk stalwarts Spanner, West Country cider-folk lunatics Surfin’ Turnips, the rocksteady stylings of The 1 Tones, and of course, big friends of the ‘Smiter’, Bristol’s own black bloc rap squad QELD.
And did we mention that it’s only a fiver?
If you don’t know it, the Red Lion (postcode: BS5 9BP) is on Whitehall Road at the junction with Lyppiatt Road, which runs between Whitehall Road and Church Road in Redfield.
There’s bus stops on both sides of the road right by the pub (Centre-Kingswood 6 & Centre-Speedwell 7), and more stops a two minute walk away on Church Road (Centre-Keynsham 42; Centre-Cadbury Heath 43; Centre-Kingswood 44; Centre-Longwell Green 45).
So get thee down there!
Local popular beat combo the QELD have gone done another music video, entitled ‘28 Draws Later’, and it’s very Hallowe’eny. No red trousers were harmed in the making of this.
PINCH, PUNCH, THE FIRST OF THE MONTH…
It’s been a busy few weeks here at the BRISTOLIAN secret editorial bunker (with a lot of big, big scandalous stories brewing – watch this space!), so apologies for the recent radio silence on the website.
In the meantime, why not fill your time listening to the ever-excellent online radio station and podcast, From Bristol With Love?
The latest edition is #41, and features the musical stylings of Bristol artistes Redlight, The Qeld, and Dub Mafia & Buggsy, with your genial hosts Dick Gherkin and Durston Fletcher expounding on a range of hot local topics, including:
- Bristol city centre’s Car-Free Sunday
- St Paul’s Festival preparations
- Local woman & penis vs man
- Louis Theroux impersonator in Somerset
- MAYOR WATCH (Your run down of George Ferguson’s latest cock ups)
- Giant White Jesus in the ass end of Bristol
- Festival Reviews and insider critique
- As well as all your local news and gossip
And of course, don’t forget to check out their extensive back catalogue of shows as well.
