Rough Trade Bristol
Legendary indie music from a legendary name: Rough Trade Bristol
Rough Trade Bristol is one in the chain nationwide music stores run by this legendary music label that also offers live music performances on a regular basis. It's an indie music store in the true sense of the word - in this world, indie means independently released, rather than defining a genre of music. Which means the selection of music on offer, both live and recorded, is phenomenal. On the live side of things, the emphasis is on providing a platform for up and coming local bands, and the excellent acoustics provide a very generous environment in which young Bristol bands can show off their chops. If you want to catch any of these gigs, you can buy or sell Rough Trade Bristol tickets on StubHub.
A venue that surrounds you with all forms of music
Rough Trade Bristol is a really nice big space in which to shop for music. The vinyl selection is enviable, and the entire place covers 4,500 square feet - all of it devoted to independent music of the highest quality from all around the globe. Record browsers and gig spectators alike will be equally happy to hear that the venue also has a fully stocked bar that has some real artisanal goodies on offer. The Bristol premises were the fifth to open in the world under the label's brand, following Nottingham, London and New York, among others. On the live music front, the type of music has naturally reflected the trend of albums sales in the record shop section, so fans have generally found that if their favourite band is charting and has an album out, they can be found playing live here. Previous examples include the likes of the hugely popular local Bristol act, Idles and London art rock ensemble Django Django. This is a venue dedicated to the sheer love of music, and the love of being completely surrounded by it in all its forms. Enjoy it for yourself with Rough Trade Bristol tickets that you can get right here.
Supporting local Bristol indie bands
As stated, Rough Trade Bristol was also expressly designed to showcase young local talent, be that an up and coming singer-songwriter, or a cool new indie band hailing from the city. Examples of bands that have played here and gone on to bigger things, sometimes even on a national basis are Lower Dens and Spotify stars, Elder Island. The scene here has been called "genre mashing" and that's a great description, because as long as it's been released on an indie record label, you can find it here, and often enjoy the band in full flight in live performance too.
