Entry Requirements: 18+
THIS IS A REVIVE LIVE EVENT
The Forum presents GRANDMAS HOUSE
Grandmas House are an all-female surfy post-punk band currently living together in Bristol.
In the middle of a recent resurgence of the post-punk genre, Grandmas House definitely stand out from the rest. Although pushing the female voice and experience in the punk genre is important to them, don’t make the mistake of thinking this is all that defines Grandmas House. Their energy, tight musicianship and message can and does mean their place on the post-punk scene, both locally and nationally, deserves to be up there with the big names. And in our humble opinion, that is definitely coming for Grandmas House very soon.

Grandmas House are an all-female, queer punk trio known for their fast and raucous guitar riffs, thumping bass lines and aggressive drums. Bristol In Stereo have described them as a ‘(ferocious) three-piece who have the lungs and power of a mighty machine’. Combining their love of post punk with at times surfy melodies they create a completely new and catchy sound that grabs you right by the throat.
Formed just over a year ago they’ve been taking the Bristol music scene by storm having played most of Bristol renowned music venues such as The Louisiana, Rough Trade, Exchange, The Old England and playing alongside big names such as Frankie Cosmos, Rita Lynch and Stef Chura. ‘Grandmas House make tenacious and infectious punk rock that veers between the murky dark gloom of The Wytches and the Riot Grrl thump of Big Joanie’ wrote Rough Trade after a Sold-Out show with Gender Roles.
Vocally having been compared to artists ranging from The Raincoats to Motörhead and described musically as a mix between Courtney Barnett and The Slits, the original, fresh sound coming from this band is undeniable.
