The Bodega

Located just a minute from Market Square, The Bodega has been going for over two decades and has always focused on up-and-coming music acts...

Bands who’ve played here and become massive afterwards include The Libertines, The XX, Arctic Monkeys and The White Stripes. As part of the DHP Family, they have some serious music heritage.

There’s a bar downstairs, a gig room upstairs and a beer garden out back that catches the end of the day sunshine. They have ten beer taps – including four craft and three ale pumps – and a fridge full of bottles and cans that’s changed weekly. It’s a good place to dip your feet into the world of craft beer if you’re just curious to try new things.

  • Rusty Shackle Play The Bodega at The Bodega

    Saturday 23 February 2019 19:00 - 22:00

    Rusty Shackle are a five-piece folk-rock band from South Wales. They have released three successful albums are an experienced live band, playing festivals and venues around the world for the last eight years.
    For the last two years, Rusty Shackle have been researching folk music - trawling through libraries, manuscripts and interviews, gathering together stories from through the ages. Reading the words and stories, they set about writing music, inspired by what they read.
    The result is ‘The Raven, The Thief & The Hangman’. A mix of traditional folk lyrics from around the world, with brand new music and melodies written for them. From the subtle to the sweet, the bombastic to the brooding, the haunting to the hallowed; the album is a genuinely fresh look at how stories can inspire music and push the boundaries of folk music at the same time.
    ‘The Raven, The Thief & The Hangman’ will be released in February 2019. www.rustyshackle.com

  • Rusty Shackle at The Bodega

    Saturday 23 February 2019 19:00

    Welsh indie-roots band Rusty Shackle have been tearing up stages around the world since 2010. Brandishing their distinct folk-roots sound and armed with an electrifying mix of rampant fiddle, scorching electric guitars, pounding drums, searing trumpet and banjo, the band have built up a devoted fanbase with their captivating live shows.

    Constantly evolving their sound, the band have released three albums over the last few years, each reaching the top 3 in the iTunes ‘Alternative Folk/Singer Songwriter’ charts. The songs are steeped in honest emotion and story telling and are born from the fires of Bruce Springsteen, Seth Lakeman, infused with the raw energy of Jack White and creativity of Tom Waits and mix it with everything in between.

    Their latest album DUSK takes their music into brave new areas, introducing an edginess and immediacy to their melody-driven folk credentials. DUSK trawls through the darker stations of the world whilst never forgetting to take in the lighter stops on the line.

    Rusty Shackle have toured extensively around the UK, Europe and USA and are mainstays on the festival circuit. They deliver excitement every time they step onstage and give everything they have to steal your heart with their music.
