Sat 29th April Talking Heads Tribute Night 7.30pm
Speaking In Tongues were formed by two rabid Talking Heads fans, and have enlisted Bristols finest funk players to refresh the Heads classics with their tasty licks! Chris Apthomas, the singer known as the Welsh David Byrne, gives his own unique take on the geeky frontman, adding to the driving rhythms and funky grooves to produce that 'once in a lifetime' experience!
Tickets available from Bristol Ticket Shop £9 in advance. £12 on the door. http://speakingintongues.co.uk/
Sat 13th + Sun 14th May SBA Arts Trail 2017 11am-6pm
Follow this event to be kept up to date regards deadlines to apply, artists that will be participating, music performances, classes, demonstrations and lots more family fun!
This is a completely free event. Approximately 100 local artists across the Southside of Bristol (Southville, Bedminster and Ashton) open their homes and studios to the general public so that you can browse their work. There are also some “public” venues such as community centres, schools, churches and local cafes. The artists will usually be on hand if you wish to discuss their work or perhaps commission something special.
The Southbank Arts Trail is a community arts event held annually in mid May. It offers an imaginative visual arts programme, celebrating the Southside of Bristols rich collection of creatives, offering opportunities to both emerging and established artists.
Thurs 18th May Comedians On The Run 7pm-9pm
Comedians on the run is back!
Bedminster will host Bristol's biggest comedy show this May when 'Comedians on the Run' takes place on Thursday 18th May.
Get ready to cry of laughter as more than 15 restaurants, cafes and pubs get ready for 20 comedians, moving between venues, battling it out to play at all the slected venues between 7-9pm.
Fri 2nd June 1% of One: TOPS 8pm
For their third and most ambitious album to date, Montreal's TOPS reach peak dream-pop with "Sugar At The Gate". Like nearly everything TOPS does, multiple meanings overlap with the album's title referring to orgasm, but also to carrot chasing, gatekeeping, and the social contract.
Released to the masses on 2nd June makes Bristol the sort-of-official album release party, so please don the most glittery thing your wardrobe will allow and show some Canucks how it's shaken.
Tickets £8.00 adv. from http://www.seetickets.com/event/tops/southbank-club/1076966
