Nipples-A-Booza 2 (Charity Event)
Fleece Promotions, in partnership with Mammothfest Brighton and The Underdog Competition, present ten of the finest acts from Bristol and the UK for a bumper all-day event to help one of the city’s most beloved figures.
At the beginning of April, Michael ‘Nipples’ Carter, a popular figure in the Bristol metal community and all-round good guy, suffered a stroke at the age of 30 following emergency surgery. A GoFundMe set up a day later to help his recovery smashed through its target within 48 hours and the ongoing support for Michael himself has been nothing short of incredible. His love for music prompted three friends to organise Nipples-A-Booza, a fundraising gig staged at the Gryphon on Friday, May 18th. The demand and interest for a show in a room holding just a capacity of 50 was so great, there needed to be a solution to avoid disappointment for those who couldn’t make it in. As such, Nipples-A-Booza 2: Get Your Nips Out was born.
On Sunday 17th June, ten bands from Bristol, the surrounding areas and Brighton will descend on legendary venue The Fleece for a day of music, mayhem and mirth to further raise funds for Michael’s ongoing recovery and private treatment. The full, star-studded lineup reads as follows:
Kill All the Gentlemen
Nasty Little Lonely
Stone Cold Fiction
Doors are at 3pm,the festivities begin half an hour later and, in addition, a raffle will be held alongside the gig with the chance to win some stellar prizes, which will be announced shortly.
Tickets are £5 and can be bought either online or direct from any of the participating bands.
On 17th June, we rock for Michael’s recovery. This is not one to miss and will go a long way to helping him on his road back to full health.
Ages: All (u16s accompanied)
Note: Tickets are available directly from the bands
