While BuggedOut is the big south coast festival this weekend for house and techno at Bognor Regis, there is plenty happening in Portsmouth to keep you busy if you’re on a bit of a budget as we head into an inevitably expensive time of the year – Christmas of course!
Firstly this Sunday, Trash Arts, Portsmouth will be presenting their headline punk rock outfit Wonk Unit at The Old Barn, Milton.
The band are described as a fresh breath of life in the London punk scene by Art Rocker and so expect plenty of energy and plenty of distorted, catchy riffs if you’re attending! Supporting will be Pizzatramp, THE SLM and Captain Trips. Tickets will cost £6.60 (including booking fee) and doors will be open from 8pm until 11pm.

Also on Monday evening, Trash Arts return for Open Ya Mouth 12 at The Fat Fox, Albert Road for the Trash arts Christmas Party. Scott Jowett will be hosting the evening as Trash Arts celebrate Christmas with various raffles, prizes and surprises of course!
