A quick recap… remember last Autumn when we did an End of Season Party with Los Albertos and the queue reached down the road. The night was hugely popular with a one in , one out…. Well, we’re gonna do it again – this time with Subgiant, Invisible and, DJ Toby Spin and Decor & Visuals by Caustik Disko. All set in the fabulous venue at 23 Bath St, Frome on 5th May 2018.
So for Once Upon a Time in the West Festival 2018, the theme for dressing up on Sunday will be ..
Yep this one gives quite a lot of range and there will be prizes for the best costume as usual… So will it be Queens, Princesses, Kings, Naves, Dragons, Instruments of Dastardly Things, Folklore, Dungeons – the list goes on and on – get creative, we love things that make us laugh – shrubberies, Killer Rabbits of Caerbannog, hot pokers…
and once again thanks to Perry Harris for our amazing Gargoyles
…. and Praise Be!!! We love working with this pair – the sound, the look and the positive attitude to their performance is so great that you can taste it. Sadly United Stoats of America have had to drop out and we’ve brought you Dry WHite Bones along as a special treat….
The best Bluegrass Band from the South Coast? Probably… featuring most of the same members of The Doghouse Boat Boys ( whom they have replaced) comes Bluegrass of epic proportions played how it should be, raw and live!!!
Well, we’ve been after them to come and play for years and now we’ve got ’em!!! A true Bristol Heavyweight and one of the original purveyors of the Bristol Ska sound, we’re very honoured to have Smerins along for 2018. Check out their Radio 6 performance below…
Yes indeedy!! Brighton Ska Naughties Los ALbertos are back once again for one of their rare UK festival appearances. It’s been a couple of years since L.A. got back together to do a few one offs, having decided to call it a day. OUT West 15 was one of hallowed dates, and we’re well chuffed to have them back again in 2018.
