The Wattles


"Playing at The PBC is a really, really special experience. Between the fairy lights, craft beers, afternoon sunsets, old-school furniture, natural acoustics, kind staff and more - this venue has something very real yet very dreamy about it. No doubt, one of my favourite venues to play at and the sound was of high-quality".
