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
Schwet x Dance Party with Apostille (Night School) tickets
Celebrating 5 years of Cacophonous Sarcophagus, Schwet invites Glasgow’s Apostille, C.E.O of Night School and certified synth-pop sensation to Stag and Hounds Public House (in the upstairs Courtroom). Citing “Depeche Mode, Suicide and Fad Gadget” as key influences, the live show has become infamous for their infectious energy and unrelenting FUN. Schwet DJs will go b2b with Dance Party's Amos & EC Ryder (Copper Sounds) 'til 4am, dropping likely the most out-there selections you’ll hear in this fair city. Tickets:
