Metronomy pack out Bristol Oxfam shop
As we approached the penultimate weekend of Oxjam Festivals we thought it time to crank things up a notch with a special DJ set in our Bristol shop from one of the country’s most innovative indie band. Mercury nominated, chart topping, festival headlining disco-popsters Metronomy took time out from their busy touring schedule (including an appearance at Bristol’s Simple Things Festival later that night) to raise the roof in the Cotham Hill shop to a packed out room.
With the Bath and Bristol Oxjam festivals having already taken place and raising a huge amount for Oxfam in the process, we thought this a worthy way to keep the party going and say thank you for their amazing efforts. It also gave a one-off opportunity for local Metronomy fans (of which hundreds turned up!) to see their idols up close and get an insight into the kind of music that inhabits their stereo when not on stage. The result was epic, as the Bristol Oxfam shop was transformed into the coolest club in town, if only for one hour.
Tracks by The Stone Roses, Daft Punk and Jimi Hendrix got the whole shop dancing like never before, and provided the perfect end to Oxjam’s programme of shop gigs and October #OxjamSessions. This weekend coming we have our final seven Oxjam Festivals coming up, plus loads more gigs across the country running all the way up until Christmas, so be sure to support grassroots music, support your local music scene, and find an event near you.
Thanks to Metronomy for supporting Oxjam 2017. Here are the best photos from the night.
