Pre-Summer Blowout

Promo shot of Bristol band First Degree Burns

Doff your hat to the impending summer months with three of Bristol's (genuinely) best bands right now.

The Golden Lion wishes to usher in the coming sunshine with some of the city's finest names, and at just four quid a pop, who are we to turn them down? 

Leading the strongly-curated line up are skip-hop pioneers First Degree Burns, a multi-instrumental outfit that have been blurring the lines between ska, rock and reggae for nearly 15 years. They're joined by The 45s, a dapper rock 'n' roll trio who take old classics and Motown favourites and turn them into sure-fire party pieces, along with the viciously brilliant post punk group known for their live prowess, Idles, who have also been championed by BBC Introducing.
