The Grove, East Mud Dock, Bristol, BS1 4RB, United Kingdom
We’ve got a big announcement to make. For this month’s issue launch parties, we’re spreading our wings ever further across the UK. Not only are we hosting the usual free parties in Bristol, Brighton, Leeds, London, Nottingham and Manchester, but we’re also hitting up three new cities - Newcastle, Birmingham, and Glasgow.
Seeing as this is a pretty big deal, we thought it would be appropriate to celebrate in style, so we’re giving away FREE DRINKS TOKENS for all the parties. PLUS, we’ve also got some incredible bands playing across the UK for us, including: D/R/U/G/S, Tall Ships, Big Deal, Old Forest, Jonquil, Becoming Real, and many more. All in the space of a week. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
Headlining the Bristol party at Thekla are Jonquil. Following the departure of three bandmates in 2010, Jonquil underwent a transformation of sorts, where they replaced those three members, with one drummer. What followed, was essentially a new band, doing away with the folk inspired, brass based pop, and instead going for a more atmospheric, and electronic take on pop. The resulting album ‘Point Of Go’, their third in total, is a joy to behold, and live they are equally as fantastic. Don’t miss out on this special show for VICE.
Support comes from Bristol’s Tremolo Ghosts, and Burning Bandits. As well as a DJ set from Olliekid & The Knowledge. See you there.
