An intimate and intense night of atmospheric and ethereal music.
After the sell out success of their first gig at the beautiful St John's church in the centre of Bristol, Ålesund thought it a fitting place to officially launch their first single: Shift & Flux. The natural acoustic and beautiful setting make for a very different and special gig.
For anyone who hasn't been, the church is the little hole-in-the-wall just off Broad Street, under the arch on Nelson Street. It's the perfect venue for an intimate and intense night of music. It's also a major part of Bristol’s cultural heritage, with its stunning Gothic city gate and elegant perpendicular spire.
Food and snacks (wine, beer, cider, tea and soft drinks plus some sweet treats) will be served until 23:00.
Tickets £5 in advance £7 OTD.
