Rock The Record charity fundraiser for Off The Record Bristol

Rock The Record Bristol

More than a dozen bands are coming together at the Thunderbolt in Bristol for ‘Rock The Record’ – which raises money for Bristol-based young persons’ mental health charity Off The Record.

The three-day event, which takes place form April 6-8, will see 15 bands/artists across metal, rock, punk and folk genres, playing to hundreds of people with the key aim being raising money for the vital Bristol charity. Off The Record tackles negative attitudes of mental health and provides a range of therapeutic services to young people.

Friday night headliners A Tale Of Two Cities combine melodic, atmospheric and catchy rhythms with meaningful vocal melodies. They have previously supported established acts such as Deaf Havana, Attack Attack and Sonic Boom Six, and the video for their debut single Juliet has been featured on Scuzz TV. Saturday night promises to be lively with Curse You Damn Kids (“There’s much to admire in this youthful two girl/three boy’s punk-laced six-track debut” – Venue), Gargantuant and 18 Up In One. The final night features Scuzz TV favourites Run From Robots and Rita Lynch.

To enhance the communal vibe of Rock The Record, organisers Natasha Baker and Chris Bowen have also enlisted the talents of local photographers, techs and volunteers to help at the events, whilst volunteers from Off The Record’s award winning campaigning group Mentality are helping to promote the shows.

Natasha Baker, Coordinator of Rock The Record, said: “Having the opportunity to help Off The Record shows how important local charities are. Including local musicians helps broaden the reach for an important local charity, while supporting the local scene.”

Tickets are available in advance (£5 one day / £8 two day / £12 three day) from Rock The Record’s BandCamp page, Bristol Ticket Shop or at the events. Band merchandise and a Rock The Record 2012 compilation CD will also be on sale. All proceeds go to Off The Record (Bristol).
