Bars with regular late licenses and regular djs include The Small Horse Inn and The Love Inn - both extremely busy on weekends. Thursday, Friday and Saturday see the bulk of Bristol's club events when huge venues like Motion and Lakota open their doors to punters. 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.
PTS w/ DJ Haram [Discwoman] tickets
The all-female Discwoman collective has been turning heads world over recently, and for good reason. Alongside crew mates UMFANG, Juana, SHYBOI et al, Philly resident Dj Haram blends bumping Jersey and Baltimore club with traditional Middle Eastern dance music and noisy DIY electronics to serious effect. She makes her Bristol debut at The Crofters Rights tonight courtesy of Psychotherapy Sessions - PTS. Support from local boys Roy Bar and Jurango. Tickets: hdfst.uk/E41065
Restless Nights Present Saoirse All Night Long tickets
The Island, Restless Nights If her recent mix for Resident Advisor is anything to go by, Saoirse is a DJ capable of covering serious ground. Spanning 40 tracks in 90 minutes, from artists as far-flung as Shackleton, Arca, Bjarki and Calibre Dnb, the mix moves deftly between eras, genres and time-zones at breakneck speed. Cybernetic oddities are deployed seamlessly amongst glitching breakbeats and uptempo techno rollers. If she can cram this much into an hour and a half, how much can we expect from 5? Tickets: hdfst.uk/E40294 £7 + 50p.
CHK One x DBS takeover tickets
TONIGHT dBs Music meet CHK One. Expect everything from acid house to jungle and bass music, featuring new talent from Bristol's top music school. Tickets - £4.00 + 50p.
Horse Lords, Cloud Becomes Your Hand & Evil  Usses tickets
TONIGHT: Horse Lords Two of America's finest new experimental bands hit Exchange thanks to Cacophonous Sarcophagus. Trance-inducing poly-rhythms collide with no-wave, art-fire jazz and kraut-pop to create something entirely new. The Evil Usses open up. Tickets: £10 + 50p.

From events on Friday

“4AD welcomes Aldous Harding, a remarkable talent from New Zealand. Today, she presents a powerful opening statement with a new song ‘Horizon’ and startling companion video.”
“UK-born, New Zealand raised, Greg Cordez has lived and worked in London, Madrid, and New York City. A busy bassist, composer and educator he’s now settled in the vibrant Bristol music scene where he teaches at BIMM music college. In 2015 Greg released his acclaimed debut CD Paper Crane, but one consequence of his frequent trips to the USA is that he decided to record his second follow up release Last Things Last in New York with some of his favourite New York players. This quite daring move has paid off magnificently, with the musicians clearly feeling an affinity both for each other and Greg’s compositions. Last Things Last is a beautiful recording which bears repeated listening. To play tunes from the album tonight Greg has opted for a twin sax frontline of Jake McMurchie and Sam Crockatt - it should be great to hear these two together. They are joined by Steve Banks - guitar, Mark Whitlam - drums, and of course the man himself on bass. http://www.gregcordez.com/
