To make this page, we've collected all of the clubnights happening tonight this can be found beneath today's gig listings in the left hand column.
Alabaster dePlume & Peluché tickets
Like a delightfully broken Ben Webster, Alabaster dePlume's fragile, breathy saxophone playing is as immediately captivating as it is extraordinary. Expect delicate solo work, warm ensemble and spoken word in turmoil from the Mancunian's bitter tongue. Hot off recent collabs with cosmonaut jazz trio The Comet is Coming, DePlume joins Peluché for an evening of unconventional jazz/folk/classical music at The Jam Jar Bristol courtesy of it's peachy. ? Tickets: hdfst.uk/E51897 ?
Still House Plants, O Yama O & EP/64 tickets
Glasgow's Still House Plants are part of the same hyper-fertile scene as Golden Teacher, Domestic Exile & Optimo Music etc. The young trio "take cues from lo-fi R&B, off-kilter post-punk and free jazz" to create something decidedly new. They headline affairs at Cafe Kino this evening. Cacophonous Sarcophagus host the proceedings with stellar support from fresh London duo O YAMA O and Bristol's most erratic improv troupé EP/64. Tickets:
Housework ft: upsammy (Nous'klaer De School)  tickets
Driven by the notion that raves should be places of dark and dizzying eccentricity, upsammy favours trippy, oddball soundscapes over floor-ready dance cuts. Though upsammy's sets shift slowly from psychedelic, washed-out ambience to slamming electro cuts and fierce drum and bass, she crafts her signature sound through a commitment to the unheimlich. Behind the controls at De School, this Amsterdammer has taken the time and space to develop into one of today’s most defiant and intriguing selectors. And if that wasn't enough...Housework still have the highest calibre residents in the BS-postcode (take a bow Shanti Celeste, Gramrcy, Daisy Moon and Golesworthy). ? Tickets: hdfst.uk/E48905 ?
Dimensions Festival x Dropout Disco tickets
A close affiliate of the tight-knit Rush Hour crew, HUNEE is unquestionably one of today’s most sought after selectors. Eyes closed in transcendental bliss alongside the likes of Antal, Marcel Vogel and Floating Points, his increasingly inimitable knack for connecting the deepest of cosmic disco, boogie, tropicalia and house gems has been bringing glee to crowds worldwide. Armed with little more than his trusty rotary, a packed bag and a charismatic grin to boot, no genre, form or tempo is out of bounds as Dropout Disco bring Hunee comes hunchin’ into Bristol on July 20th to celebrate Dimensions Festival’s UK-wide launch series. Tickets: hdfst.uk/E46216
