Bristol

Is anyone else going down to Bristol this weekend for Big Pink Cake? There seems to be an ace gig on too which starts mid afternoon - with Winston Echo and some others. I've been promised it'll be really twee so I'm there with little bells on.
And by me, I mean, Flexo.

Yes, check out my disguise. Neat huh!

How come you can't go? I thought you could. Are you missing three pop events in one weekend?

THREE pop events?? no, I'm coming tonight!

I just can't go to bristol cos i said i'd go out tomorrow with pete n rach (of drum kit fame) and as rach is a nurse working shifts it'd be really bad of me to cancel cos who knows when we could reschedule. also, it's been arranged since forever.

TONIGHT!!! woo!

Anyway traitor, what are we doing in Bristol RIGHT NOW, no one's posting in brum.....

Flight from Bristol to Glasgow currently stands at around £1234 via amsterdam. Anyone got a more expedient suggestion how to make this trip?

Ah but here is an additional problem. I'll be three days in Bristol, weekend in London then another three days in Bristol. So the abck and forth will drive me doolallier. Unless I spend the first five days in London but I'm scared of the place. I managed to find something on national express but it wont let me book. Cheaper than the £200 train fare. I used to fly between Bristol and GLasgow for £40 odd quid for my sake!

I'll be staying with my beautiful girls when in Bristol and their narky sarky mother then we'll be driving to London together if all comes to plan. Any good indie places to go there? I always end up getting dragged to r n b places or that rock pub in the centre..

When are you going?
If you book a train a month in advance you can get a single between Bristol and Glasgow for £22.
It takes 6 hours and 25 minutes.
http://www.thetrainline.com

Sometimes it's a lot cheaper to buy singles if you're booking in advance.

Heading off 29th January back 6th Feb. I'm going to see Kula Shaker with my friend as a favour! I already checked on trainline and it was still pretty steep for someone who's saving their pennies at the moment. Bus is only 8 hours and I've got a three books in a series to get through so it could turn out to be advantageous.

Just thought this was worth mentioning - there's an anti-folk alldayer at The Juntion this Sunday. I'm sneaking out of Glastonbury early to play it with Lime Chalks -

calvin johnson’s work in underground culture started back in the early days of punk as a teenage fan volunteering at the local community radio station, KAOS-FM in olympia washington. he moved on to establish the legendary K records in 1982 and has been at the heart of truly independent music and art in the USA ever since. through K, and in-house dub narcotic studios, he has worked with a host of influential artists including beck, make up, built to spill, modest mouse, the blow, kimya dawson, heavenly, the microphones, jon spencer blues explosion and the gossip amongst others.

his distinctive voice and idiosyncratic stage presence (including signature dance moves such as ‘the tummy hop’) have gained him friends and fans around the world for his bands beat happening, go team, halo benders, dub narcotic sound system and most recently calvin johnson and the sons of the soil.

the decade of the double zeroes has seen calvin johnson set out into the world, acoustic guitar in hand, as a solo artist. deadpan, playful, romantic and confrontational in turn; his live performances in the UK are few and far between.

lianne hall is a musician from brighton with a voice and style immediately familiar in its gentle captivating warmth, yet who conveys an emotional depth and integrity that's completely unique in it's range and beauty. lianne's take on country/folk music is sparse, uncluttered and direct, with a raw honesty inherent of her long standing involvement in DIY punk rock. her songs brim with fragile confidences and open confession; an offering of weary candour, 'digging deep / i'm cleaned out / here's everything / i own'.

at times melancholic and aching, the longing that pounds at the heart of the best country music beats louder than drums when she sings. and yet it's the effortlessness, almost nonchalance, that draws you into the shade of her voice, and is part of the reason why john peel (for whom lianne recorded five sessions, including a live christmas special at peel acres) called her 'one of the great english voices'.

the mountain parade hail from oxford and bristol and feature members of little cosmonaut and roxanne:theearlyyears. evoking 60's kitchensink bubblegum and perfect pastoral pop, they create sweetist minimalist folk where words and instruments (though there are many, including ukuele, clarinet, trumpet, melodica, harmonium, oboe and various percussion) are used sparingly to create precise yet shambolic pop masterpieces - the kind that the kids of bristol do so well (think IKIHNC, freeze puppy, my two toms, lacuna, fránçois, etc). this will be their first bristol show.

So we intend to go to Big Pink Cake's new year's party (flyer below) and to that end we need a place like a hostel or cheap-ish hotel in the neighbourhood spend the night. Does anyone have any suggestions?
