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.

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 ?
