Bristol's Indie Scene

Perhaps the most important mid-sized indie venue is The Louisiana whose "played-here-before-they-were-really-famous" list boasts Bloc Party, Kings of Leon, Fleet Foxes and Muse. ***** Other key indie venues in Bristol include The Cooler, Start The Bus and The Thekla all with regular bands and live music.
