COIL 2: Imma Asher / Elysia Crampton / Colin Self

— Brunswick Club
A happening where outsiders re-seize soylent space within the oozing heart of Bristol
price: Tickets Below


COIL TOGETHER. AGAIN. Howling Owl Records and THORNY return to the idiosyncratic Brunswick Club for the second instalment of COIL. A happening where outsiders re-seize soylent space within the oozing heart of Bristol.

Building on the successful spectacle of our first collaboration earlier this year, we have stepped the chaos up a notch with unmissable appearances from international pioneers in live art and experimental sound, alongside some favourite DJs to facilitate our euphoric descent at this night of necessary release.



Brunswick Club need funds to continue putting on events and to help pay for artists' equipment, some of which was unfortunately stolen during a recent incident. When booking your ticket, please consider donating £5 to help secure the future of our home. Thank you for your support.



Performance artist Imma Asher (formerly known as IMMA/MESS) is a major nightlife personality living in and from NYC. Originally training in ballet at the prestigious Alvin Ailey School of Dance, her work transcends disciplines, using movement to give the intangible a physical presence. Imma joins us in Bristol for an electrifying one-off club performance that is guaranteed to leave you entranced.


Elysia Crampton’s eclectic and unrestrained electronic music is the flashpoint of a myriad influences opening upon the complexity and multifacetedness of Aymara becoming. Underscored by radical and queer politics, Crampton’s experimental work gives sonorous form to contemporary expressions of Aymara resistance and survival: a project of “becoming-with,” in the shades given this term by Donna Haraway via prison abolitionist Che Gossett.


Colin Self composes and choreographs music, performance, and environments for expanding consciousness, troubling binaries and boundaries of perception and communication. His music explores the transformative power of the human voice drawing on a diverse set of influences that include queer theory, liturgical ritual, trap rhythms and electro-acoustic sound design. He is known for his highly charged, physical performances that combine his vocal virtuosity with choreographed movement and electronic processing, unfolding into a compelling play of transmutation.

Hosted by inimitable London scene queen Kevin Le Grand, with unrepentant interventions from Man Up 2017 drag king competition winner Manly Stanley and local performers Frisky.

Like all Howling Owl Records and THORNY events, COIL is a safe space for all regardless of age, ethnicity, sexuality, gender or rejection of gender. There will be zero tolerance for any discriminative behaviour which doesn't support this ethos. If you have any concerns, talk to one of our team or the venue staff. Please be nice, be open-minded & enjoy your night.


Brunswick Club is wheelchair accessible via a ramp. Please note that the toilets at the venue are not equipped with disabled access facilities, but the toilets are located on the ground floor. The event takes place across two spaces: the ground floor ballroom and the downstairs basement, which is only accessible via the stairs.

Some performances will contain strobe lighting and/or flashing lights.

If you need more information or have access requirements please email jo@wearethorny.com and we’ll do all we can to facilitate.

With thanks to Qu Junktions and residents of The Brunswick Club, now home to Bristol Experimental & Expanded Film, Residence, CHAMP and THORNY.
