Skimmity Hitchers + The Inbredz + Palooka 5 @ The Winchester Arms, Taunton 2/2/17

After a brief gap in proceedings, Fuelled By Cider return to The Winchester Arms in Taunton with the very best in original live music.

Tonight is the relaunch event featuring three heavyweights of cider-fuelled musical mayhem.

The Skimmity Hitchers – if you don’t know about these badger-botherin’ buggers already then where have you been hiding? Scrumpy & Western with a punk edge and outrageous audience interaction.

The Inbredz – They come from Peasedown and there ain’t no cure! Forget Goldie Lookin’ Chain – these 3 dirty boyz tell us how it is down Somerset way with hip-hop tales of STDs, adult breast feeding and the joy of mushrooms. If that sounds like your kind of thing then come join the freakshow!

Palooka 5 – Taunton’s very own apocalyptic surf-psych-garage explosion. Grab a pint, put on your tin helmet and get groovin’ on that dancefloor!

Doors 7.30pm, first band 8pm.

Advance tickets available from the Winch and online for £10.

£12 on the door.

There will also be a small amount of £8 ‘early bird specials’ online if you get in quickly enough!
