Trending live music in Bristol this weekend

There are more than 59 gigs happening in Bristol this weekend and we've managed to collect them all onto this one page. The event listings below include all the local bands and musicians playing on both Friday and Saturday evenings. If you are planning on going to any of the larger gigs and concerts this weekend we strongly recommend buy tickets in advance from our ticket shop.
New Year / New Noise 5 (Night Two) tickets
SOLD OUT: NYNN W/ GIANT SWAN ––– Giant Swan were one of Bristol’s breakthrough acts in 2017, decimating clubs and festivals across Europe with their brand of blown-out techno, as well as releasing their best 12” yet on Timedance. Their first show of the year is this Saturday at the unique converted working mans' club The Brunswick Club, as part Howling Owl Records fifth & final 'New Year/New Noise' weekender. Last tickets
New Year / New Noise 5 (Weekend Ticket) tickets
NEW YEAR / NEW NOISE –––– Howling Owl Records’s annual celebration of ‘Art/Noise/Reaction’ climaxes over 3 nights at The Brunswick Club. Proceedings are topped by Philadelphia’s Moor Mother, her seething ‘hardcore poetry/blk girl blues’ rising to the forefront of experimental circles in ‘17. Bristol-boys-done-good Giant Swan are sure to brew up a cathartic blow-out, after a relentless ascent this year, becoming one of the most talked about live techno duos in Europe. S4U add a spectral quality to their 90s RnB romanticism, whilst Nervous Conditions are a promising young art-rock/post-punk gang. Plus expect more exploratory electronics from Vessel, E B U and many more. Tickets:
Noods Radio 2nd Birthday: Mr Ho(Klasse Recordings) tickets
EDITOR’S PICK: NOODS BIRTHDAY WEEKENDER –– Fri 1st - Sun 3rd December Nobody embodies Bristol’s enduring DIY spirit better than the Noods Radio​ crew. Over the last two years the team have hosted countless live-streams, pop-ups, parties and pub sessions, all with a sense of fun and creativity unrivalled in this city. Join them for a weekend of parties celebrating two years in the business. On the Friday, Klasse Recordings / Klasse Wrecks co-head Mr. Ho Music Page​ takes over The Black Swan​ for a night of tripping house, bleep techno and Japanese disco. On the Saturday, the crew open up their studios for a day of open-invite live streams. Finally, on Sunday, they return to their spiritual home at The Surrey Vaults​ for a day of pints and post-punk. Just remember to book the Monday off work. Tickets: hdfst.uk/E42066 Listen: soundcloud.com/the-ransom-note/mr-ho-the-ransom-note-mix
Musu Terrace Party ft. Pender Street Steppers tickets
It’s no secret that Vancouver is home to one of the best house music scenes on earth right now. Its distinctive sound - lush, languid and lo-fi - has been imitated everywhere, but nobody comes close to matching original Mood Hut favourites Pender Street Steppers and Hashman Deejay. Both play Musu's day-and-night double bill this weekend - a must for fans of dreamy pads, new age synths and pots-n-pans percs. PSS (Day): £5) Hashman Deejay (Night): £4)
