Tom Evans/ October 30, 2018

On the 29th October 2018, Snail Mail treated a sold-out Bodega crowd to a whirlwind hour-long set demonstrating precisely why they’re one of the most talked about upcoming alternative bands. They may be snail by name but they’re certainly not snail by nature owing to their loud, euphoric, jazz-tinged alternative rock songs. Having been fortunate enough to catch the project

This month saw up-and-coming rock sensations Hunter and the Bear completing their UK tour, taking their sold-out show from the impressive Scala in London to our very own Bodega.
