The latest addition to the Big Chill’s ever-expanding empire of venues opens this weekend in our hometown, Bristol. What’s more, we’ve been asked along to make sure that the opening party goes with a bang. Excited? You bet!
The launch of the Big Chill Bristol has been an open secret for a while now, with Big Chill bods filling significant space in this year’s festival programme to ads promoting the launch. It’s a joint venture between the Big Chill chiefs and our old friends James Savage and Dave Smeaton, owners of the previous venue on the same site, Native, and The Spotted Cow pub in Bedminster – our ‘home from home’ where we spin tunes most Saturdays. We were naturally delighted when Dave asked us to play at the opening party alongside other future BC Bristol stalwarts Western Soul (Dave, his DJ partner Neil and local beatmaking legend Ben Dubbison) and Futureboogie. We’ll be bringing the party to the last two hours from 1am. Expect the usual feel good selection of grooves to make the party go with a bang!
Entry to The Big Chill Bristol will always be free, so you can head down for some recession-proof boogieing whenever you fancy it. There’ll be offering food during the day, and some art trail stuff in true BC tradition. It should be a fantastic addition to the Bristol scene, which is severely lacking decent bars playing quality music.
