London's Inner Terrestrials brought their mix of punk, ska and folk to Cardiff. The packed show at Cardiff's Moon Club was an anarchic, triumphant yet frequently poignant event due to the recent and sudden passing of their legendary drummer Paco Carreno. The band members despite their obvious distress and sadness over this terrible loss played a fitting tribute to their friend and bandmate and I for one felt priviledged to be in attendance. Fantastic songs, fantastic band, fantastic gig!
Prior to the main act I was lucky to catch Cardiff's own Puny Humans. These wonderful wordsmiths delivered a powereful yet always tuneful set of songs illustrating their intelligent, brutal, yet frequently humerous view of society and the times we live in. I cant wait to see them again
Cradled in historic Womanby street, you will find The Bootlegger, an independent, Welsh family run business welcoming all who look for a friendly company, good conversation, and an amazing selection of Liquor. The Bootlegger is a bar for all times, a place without pretence. Our liquor, our service and our music are inspired by Prohibition-era traditions but also offer the very best of contemporary modern America. We believe that a bar is what its patrons and community make it, which is why we serve true, well-crafted cocktails, Beers and Ciders all within a live music environment. We are excited to be part of the Cardiff community and welcome you all to come and feel at home in our bar.
Prohibition was a sad time in history when beer was banned, it lasted 14 years! On December 5th, 1933, the 21st Amendment was signed repealing Prohibition and restoring sanity and permitting the consumption of beer again! The Bootlegger continues to celebrate this momentous occasion today and every day.
Live Music and a great atmosphere are at the heart of the Bootlegger. We build on the very best of the 1920s and 30s swing and jazz scene and also offer more modern influenced Blues, Jazz, Soul and rock n roll.
