Music / Previews

Music & Clubs Picks, October 24 – 30

By Adam Burrows , Monday Oct 24, 2016

Monday: Ohhms /Hogslayer /Super Goliath, Stag & Hounds
Sludge metal band Ohhms rocked the Fleece earlier this year and now bring their brooding blend of metal, doom and psychedelia to everyone’s favourite Old Market boozer.

Monday: DZ Deathrays/Dunerats/Lice, Exchange 
Australian party punks DZ Deathrays play upbeat anthems with buzzsaw guitar riffs – highly danceable, but with a hard, punk edge. Support comes from stoner punk band Dunerats and ace Bristol-based post-punkers Lice.

Tuesday: Daughter, Colston Hall
Daughter’s hushed sound is a beautiful blend of folk, indie and electronics. Singer Elena Tonra’s whispered lyrics are matched by Igor Haefeli’s subtle guitar work.


Tuesday: Shaun Escoffery, The Lantern
He’s best mates with Idris Elba and has been hailed as one of the brightest talents in British R&B. Shaun Escoffery arrives in Bristol on the back of new album Evergreen proving his quality as a silky soul balladeer.

Wednesday: Super Hans, Marble Factory
The drug crazed man with van and star of Channel 4’s Peep Show brings his eclectic DJ instincts to town. We’re not sure whether to be excited or scared.

Wednesday: FLIT, Colston Hall
Inspired by first hand accounts of human migration across the world, FLIT is a new audiovisual show created by Martin Green of Lau. Performers include Adrian Utley (Portishead), Dominic Aitchison (Mogwai) and Becky Unthank (The Unthanks) and there’s stop motion animation from whiterobot.

Thursday: The Japanese House, Thekla
Amber Bain’s project features vocoder heavy vocals and sweeping synths, pushing the boundaries of alternative pop to create something truly personal.

Thursday: Tal & Groethusen, St George
This opening concert of the annual Bristol Piano Duo Festival features Taars Tal (Israel) and Andreas Groethuysen (Germany) performing duets by Reger, Beethoven and Mendelssohn.

Friday: Venomfest, Stag & Hounds
All day mini-festival of grunge, emo, hardcore and punk over two floors. Twenty bands will be perform including Grove Street Families, Blanket Hill, Sickones, Skin, Muskets, Autumn Diet Plan, Beach Tape, and Marigolds.

Friday: Shlomo
New one man show from the award winning beat-boxer Shlomo, who has previously worked with Lily Allen, Jarvis Cocker and DJ Yoda. Shlomo explores his relationship with technology in a whirlwind of beats, basslines and bleeding edge tech.


Saturday: Babyfather, The Black Swan
Alternately bleak, warm, scathing and hilarious, BBF Hosted by DJ Escrow is the most thought provoking UK album of 2016. The latest project from shapeshifting genius Dean Blunt, it draws on grime, trip hop and noise to disorientating effect.

Saturday: Wonka-Vision Fright Night, Old Crown Courts
The courtroom and police cells are the suitably creepy setting for this Halloween bass session. Expect “haunted house lock-ins, graveside cocktail bars” and music from Dub Phizix & Strategy, The Upbeats, Jubei, Foreign Concept and more.

Saturday: Just Jack, Motion
You know exactly what you’re going to get from a Just Jack night. Lavish décor and a generous lineup of international house and techno talent. The guests for this one are Marcel Dettmann (pictured), Prins Thomas, Mike Huckaby, Marcellus Pittman and Jane Fitz.

Saturday: Eva Lazarus / Mr Woodnote / Lil Rhys, Exchange
One of Bristol’s most talented performers, Eva Lazarus is the frontwoman of Bristol dub band Dub Mafia, and she headlined our stage at the BBC 6Music festival back in March. Here she appears with regular collaborators – live sax looping buskers extraordinaire Mr Woodnote and Lil Rhys.

Sunday: James Blake / Mark Pritchard, O2 Academy
Blake’s achingly mournful fusion of R&B and bass-heavy electronica won him the Mercury Prize in 2013. Tonight he performs songs from 2016 album The Colour In Anything with support from IDM polymath Mark Pritchard (Global Communication / Africa Hitech e al).

Sunday: This Is The Kit / The Fantasy Orchestra, Trinity
Based in Bristol and Paris, Kate Stables’ band This Is The Kit continue to build a passionate following for their wonderfully eccentric, endlessly inventive cocktail of pop, folk, jazz and indie. Latest album Bashed Out has been deservedly supported by various BBC 6Music shows, and support comes from ex-Moonflowers / Morning Star mainman Jesse Vernon’s equally wonderful Fantasy Orchestra.
