Who’s coming to the Fuelled By Cider party?!
Yet another night of quality live music in Taunton brought to you by Fuelled By Cider promotions.
Blazing a trail through the South West at the moment are Taunton’s very own Palooka 5. With a great reputation on the gig and festival circuit for their garage-surf-psych sounds and Apocalyptic onstage dynamic, tonight they are going to take ownership of the county town.
Making the journey up from the south coast are Bournemouth’s The Electric Shakes, bringing some “balls out fuzzed up blues Punk N Roll” energy to the party. Already confirmed for a number of festivals in summer 2017, this will be a great chance to see them up close and personal.
Local rock / punk / pop outfit Last One Home will be kicking of proceedings tonight. With new recorded material and high profile gigs at The Fleece (Bristol) and Cobblestones (Bridgwater) this is a great chance to check out some rising local talent.
First band 8pm
Tickets £6 advance available from The Winchester Arms, Blackcat Records, G.C.Music And Collectables and online at www.fuelledbycider.com
