Dirtytalk launch crowdfunder for new music venue Strange Brew

The Bristol party collective are raising funds for a permanent home.

Dirtytalk have launched a crowdfunding campaign to open a new music and arts venue called Strange Brew. After hosting parties in unconventional spaces – such as the Hells Angels Motorcycle Showroom – the crew are looking to move into a permanent home. The 330-capacity venue space is located beneath a car park on Fairfax Street, and it’ll be comprised of two performance spaces, a bar, cafe, gallery and record shop.

If the group succeed in reaching their £45,000 target, they plan on offering a programme of live music gigs, film screenings, workshops and community events in addition to their club nights at Strange Brew.

“Ultimately we aim to create a music and arts venue that we believe is sorely needed in Bristol,” Dirty state via the Crowdfunder, “which will offer a fun and welcoming place for many groups and individuals to meet and connect, as well as being a platform for a diverse range of local and international artists, performers and subcultures.”

“After a long time of searching, we finally found a building that we feel is perfect to deliver this – in a central location and not constrained by any nearby residential properties, this premises has been derelict for nine years so it’s in real need of being brought back to life.” [sic]

Dirtytalk have been hosting parties in the UK city for nearly a decade, bringing artists such as Vladimir Ivkovic and Young Marco to Bristol.
