Talco + Support @ The Pickle Factory, Bristol, Friday 30th September

A real coup for Fuelled By Cider tonight as Italian ska-punk-folk heavyweights Talco hit Bristol as part of their first ever UK tour.

Hugely loved and well-known in Europe for their up tempo live show, ska rhythms and strong political stance – this is exciting new territory for the band and we are delighted to welcome them to The Pickle Factory in Easton.

Doors open at 7pm and our famous cider bar will be in full flow. Two support bands to be announced.

Tickets are £6 in advance from Bristol ticket Shop and www.fuelledbycider.com

£8 on the door

Tonight’s gig is a part fundraiser for the Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls anti-racist sports tournament in 2017. Both the club and Talco have strong links with legendary German football team FC St Pauli and we think there will be some common ground tonight…

Only 100 tickets available so please get in quick!

Louis Barabbas + That Hidden Promise + Jack Humphries @ The Winchester Arms, Taunton 15th April

Louis Barabbas + That Hidden Promise + Jack Humphries @ The Winchester Arms, Taunton. Doors open 7.30pm.

Tickets £6 Advance / £8 On The Door – Available from www.fuelledby.bigcartel.com, Blackcat Records and The Winchester Arms soon.

Advance booking advisable as previous events have sold out.

Over 18’s only. R.O.A.R

Louis Barabbas is a writer, performer and label director, best known for caustic love songs and energetic stage shows.

Former mime-artist and street sweeper Louis is particularly interested in love stories – but the ones that take place after all those Happily-Evers have gathered a few layers of dust; narratives that explore the darker side of romance in an environment where regrets and insecurities start to take shape and are allowed (even encouraged) to blossom and gather thorns. Louis is a writer/musician, dubious pundit, member of advisory board for Un-Convention, BrighterSound mentor, spoons player, Beards Calendar Miss June, co-founder of Debt Records and Captain of Dirt-Swing band The Bedlam Six.


Originally from Blackpool, now living in Somerset, That Hidden Promise is a solo act, delivering an eclectic, electric performance, also creating all the beats and percussion live, to wow the crowd and give them something to talk about.

A new e.p. “Eclectic, Electric” is out in the spring, with more releases to follow throughout the year. A two time GFM songwriting finalist, THP has been gigging throughout the UK over the past three years and already has a headline show in Bristol and further dates in London in the can for this spring.

In the words of others:
“This guy is literally incredible”, “ridiculously talented for a solo performer” – Words for music
“A Prestigious talent” – Have you Heard.com
“Extraordinary, Techno-rock loop wizardry” – Glastonbury FringeLouis-Barabbas-live

Fuelled By Cider are delighted to bring Bournemouth’s indie-quirk-folk trio Willowen to the Stag and Hounds in Bristol as part of their spring tour.

Willowen have built an impressive reputation on the south coast over the past few years. Fusing 3 part harmoneis, indie rock ethics and a folky twist, the band has been described as a quirky mix of folk and Fleetwood Mac. Their debut album and live reputation has earned them slots at festivals such as Isle of Wight, Larmer Tree, Purbeck Folk Festival, Tolpuddle Martyrs and our very own Outcider Festival.

We are also excited to announce that the much acclaimed The Freeborn Brothers will be joining the bill tonight as they pass through Bristol on their never-ending international mission to bring the best gypsy-infused Americana to the live music scene. A truly great band, you’d be mad to miss them!

Further support from the fantastic Elea Calvet.
