At the end of each year, we like to celebrate the sights of Bristol’s live music scene, as well as the sounds, as we give thanks and centre stage to the people whose eye for a still-frame enhances our appreciation of a show once we’ve come back down to Earth. So raise a glass to the pit-dwellers, the audience wrestling, shutter snapping, ‘three songs no flash’ visual artists of the gig world.
Here’s a shot from every show we sent a photographer to this year – Part 1. Watch out for the later instalments in the forthcoming final days of 2019. If you want to know who the photographer or artist is for any shot, just hover the cursor over the image for details.
