Solus is one of the best Students’ Union nightclubs in the country. Located on the 2nd floor of the Union building, expect a wide variety of music spread across 4 regular nights every week and lots of 1 off events. It’s also an amazing gig venue, recently hosting acts like Emeli Sande and Twin Atlantic.
Currently there are no events for the Cardiff Solus .
Selected reviews for this venue:
A small venue for such a Big Band,but it did not detract from the great music from all three bands.I was in the front row so had a great view but there were no bad obstructed views from inside the venue.Bar facilities and toilets were good,security was evident but was not needed.Good atmosphere with everyone joining in with the band.
Black Star Riders (11/12/13) - Superb
Black Star Riders showed why they decided to carry on the Lizzy tradition but with the new name.The show was a combination of Riders and Lizzy material which showcased their talents.Ricky Warwick is a great front man with great performances from the rest of the band.Damon Johnson`s guitar playing was simply stunning with Scott Gorham equalling him at all times,although he is arguably the more well known face he does not want to take centre stage and they share the guitar parts equally.Marco Mendoza`s bass playing and presence was immense.The drumming of Jimmy DeGrasso was great,he put everything into every number and was evidently enjoying the show.Overall a great night and I can`t wait for the next album release.Also I must mention the two support bands,Western Sand and the Dead Dasies,great bands and well worth their support billing.
