We talk to our favourite people about all things Bristol, from food to favourite bands. This month, we pick the brains of Paul James & Rhys Friery, promoters of NightBus at Mr Wolfs.
Who’s your top Bristol artist at the moment?
Little Thief are really killing it for us at the moment! We’ve got them booked in to play with Bite The Buffalo on August 19th and the last show we saw them play was out of control!
How would you describe the music scene here?
It’s inspiring, forever evolving and diverse. Wherever you turn there is new music. As a promoter there’s something really exciting about getting new artists to debut at our nights.
What are your favourite eats around town?
Though I’m sure we are a little biased, Mr Wolfs’ noodles are back! The Szechuan vegan prawns are outstanding. They’ve been fuelling Bristol musicians and fans alike for years.
What’s your favourite thing about the city?
Bristol’s reaction to the slightest bit of sunshine is great. Within minutes every piece of harbour side is covered with people… We also really like boats, perhaps the next step for us is a NightBoat…?
And your least favourite?
We will be really happy when our city centre stops being a building site. We have never indulged in parkour but it’s currently looking like a good option.
What are you most excited about for NightBus for the rest of this year?
You need to make sure you come down for Imperial Daze on October 21st. They have been putting out some incredible tracks and it will be Rhys’ Birthday. We’re also very excited to announce the headliners for our Christmas show…
Nightbus shows off the cream of local music every third Saturday of the month at Mr Wolf’s, with a free drink for all advance ticket holders. Next up: Bite The Buffalo, 19th August.
