Schnauser are playing at Rise on Queens Street in Bristol on Saturday. It comes just weeks after they did an album launch gig there.
The Rise late night opening is part of a Queen Street wise event, in which all the shops on that stretch are opening late for one day to help promote independent shops in Bristol.
The music starts at 3pm, and Schnauser are on at 6pm. It’s free to get in and there’s going to be a bar in the shop!
If you can’t catch the band, who are from Bristol, at this special gig then check them out at The Croft on October 19. Tickets £5.

See below for a review of their new album.

The Sound of Meat
(Pink Hedgehog)

If you hate it when musicians take themselves too seriously, pouting like fish through their side swept fringes and writing songs about their tortured souls then you may just love these Bristol guys. They take the comical lyrics of the Divine Comedy/Monty Python/Spinal Tap, add some 60s Britpop melodies and 70s psychadelica and come out the other side sounding like a kind of witty Boo Radleys – the perfect soundtrack to an indie kid acid trip. With hints of Mike Flowers Pop, singer Alan croons: “I don’t have any trouble wooing the ladies, in fact they just throw themselves in my general direction and who can blame them?” – poetry which Half Man Half Biscuit would be proud of.
