PARKAS present: PARKAS Farewell Show @ The Louisiana Bristol

PARKAS Farewell Show live at The Louisiana, Bristol. Saturday, 4th May 2024

A garage rock quartet hailing from Bristol, specialising in dirty, disillusioned, and maliciously unapologetic rock and roll. Enjoy only at maximum volume. 

Following the release of the stellar singles ‘Liquorice’ and ‘Pos’tive’ which were recorded at Sugar House Studios, the band have performed sold out headline shows in their stomping ground of Bristol at The Louisiana, Mr Wolfs and Rough Trade, as well as in the big smoke of London at The Fiddler’s Elbow and The Victoria (Dalston).

The lads have also supported some of the biggest names in the current UK scene, namely The Scruff, The Wholls, Himalayas, The Velvet Hands, False Heads, Novatines, Larkins and The Snuts. 
Singer and frontman Matt Banks has even opened for Carl Barat and The Jackals with a solo acoustic set at Bristol’s renowned venue on a boat, Thekla.


"F***ING HEAVY MAN" - Liam Gallagher, Oasis / Beady Eye 
“To say PARKAS set was electric would be an understatement, it’s more directly wiring your eyes to a mains plug socket and going bang” - Cam Mulberry, The Bristol Gig Guide

Sol Feo fuses thoughtful lyrics with a rich tapestry of 90’s alt-rock riffs, funk-driven basslines, and dark-honey harmonies to produce a truly unique sound within Bristol’s thriving live music scene. The six-piece band were brought together in 2018 following an open mic night, and have since played across Bristol venues including the BBC Radio Bristol stage at Bristol Harbour Festival, The Louisiana, The Jam Jar and The Exchange. 

Their debut EP, coming in 2024, takes listeners on a genre-bending exploration of musical storytelling. 

FFO RHCP/ Crumb / Tool / No Doubt / War Paint / Marika Hackman / The Beatles / Franz Ferdinand

Show starts at 7.30pm.
