Bristol outfit Soeur to headline local live showcase at KomediaPosted on: 24 Jan 2020
The exciting three-piece will be joined by Ego Death Star, Charivari and Ravetank on Wednesday 29 January as part of Independent Venue Week.
Independent Venue Week 2020 is just around the corner, and you'd expect one of Bath's absolute favourites to put an event together big enough to fit the occasion.
We're glad to report that Komedia have done just that, inviting four renowned local bands for an eagerly-awaited live showcase on Wednesday 29 January. Advance tickets are on sale now for just £6 - get yours here.
Breaking hard-rock down to its simplest, most stripped-back form, Bristol outfit Soeur are a soulful-yet-uncompromising assault on the senses. Combining sweet vocals with no-nonsense riffs and crashing beats provided by drummer James Collins, the band's sound is one of colossal proportions.
Providing backup on the night will be fellow Bristolians Ego Death Star and Charivari, two bands from Bristol and Bath respectively that have carved out stellar reputations for themselves in recent years.
We're especially excited for Charivari who, since their formation in 2013, have become renowned for their explosive live performances and creative use of instrumentation.
Absurdist noise-folk band Ravetank complete the live lineup, a band inspired by the likes of The Velvet Underground and committed to their fiercely unique sound that actively rebels against the convention of making polished, pristine music.
Supported by BBC Sounds and BBC 6 Music, Independent Venue Week is a seven-day celebration of venues across the UK and the people that own them, run them and work in them, week in, week out.
Tickets for Soeur, Ego Death Star, Charivari and Ravetank at Komedia on Wednesday 29 January are on sale now and can be found here. For more information or to find out what else is coming up at Komedia, head to their website.
