28 October 2017, 9pm - 3am, Brunswick Club

Sleeping States: 10 years of There The Open Spaces

1 November 2017, 7.30pm, The Cube

A special performance of There The Open Spaces, the spellbinding first album from Sleeping States, to mark 10 years since its release.

Join us for an intimate serenade at The Cube on a woozy Wednesday evening, with support from Bristol DIY noisemakers Palomica. Later on downer pop dreamboat Oliver Wilde will be on the decks in the bar for a special vinyl set.

Arnolfini Late w/ Lone Taxidermist, THERESAMAYSMACKDOWN, Travis Alabanza, Shon Faye, Manara (DJ) + more

1 December 2017, 8pm, Arnolfini

This December we’re raiding the ground floor of Arnolfini with an entourage of the most politically relevant and necessary artists we know right now. As the doors to Grayson Perry’s acclaimed exhibition close for the evening, join us as we reclaim space in the centre of Bristol with an army of protesting performers, who are redefining what it means to be an outsider in 2017.
