Exchange

Forward thinking live music venue in Old Market.


Since opening its doors to the public in later summer 2012, Bristol's Exchange has proven itself to be a key player in Bristol's live music music scene. With ticketted events almost every night of the week, Exchange plays host to a wide variety of live bands and styles. That said, the venue's musical programming for bands that sit on the heavier side of the fence (post-rock, math rock, psych) is unrivalled elsewhere in Bristol.

The venue is set over two floors with the larger of the two stages upstairs found upstairs. While club promoters are able to run two concurrent soundsystems, gig promoters and all-dayers use the space to sequence bands and provide a constant programme of music.

Doors for live music events at Exchange are typically 7.30pm, while clubnights vary.

Our recent recommendations for Exchange

Sell out warning! All your favourite bands would still be adrift in the alt-rock metaverse without paisley-fried proto-grunge progenitors Redd Kross. Their fuzzed-out brand of power-glam is immortal, no reinvention necessary, and 2024 desperately needs this Kross to die on. 101% unmissable FFO: Replacements, Ty Segall, Weezer, Dinosaur Jr, Meatbodies, Cheap Trick. Redd Kross at Exchange.

Sell out warning! Melvins god in sinister singer-songwriter unplugged troubadour mode + Mr Bungle’s Trever Dunn on double bass. Nuff said. King Buzzo + Trevor Dunn at Exchange.

Angular noise rock meets post-hardcore chaos in tight blasts of guitar discord and high-pitched yelps. Dead essential for fans of: the Locust, Daughters, Fugazi, Metz, Converge, Jesus Lizard, Big Black etc. Alpaca Presents | Tunic x Death Goals at Exchange.

Reverant folk blues played on 12 string guitar with the poetic fever of Townes Van Zandt, summoning the same ghosts of mental illness and the mundane country sprawl. Parr isn’t a revivalist - he’s one of the last of the true originals. Charlie Parr at Exchange.

Blistering post-hardcore sonic assault! This is how we like our bands! USA Nails deliver that winning combo of snotty vocals, menacing guitar feedback and feral drumming to such a damaging degree that it’s borderline psychedelic. Essential FFO: Metz, Unsane, Cocaine Piss, Mclusky, Drive Like Jehu, Future Of The Left. USA Nails at Exchange.
