Brave the elements at this pre-festive sonic celebration, graced by three artists who each find singularly ecstatic ways to stoke the fires of modern music.


Unfortunately Richard Dawson is unwell and unable to perform this evening at Arnolfini.

Instead, winging in from Sheffield are the mighty BLOOD SPORT, whose deadly combination with Islam Chipsy & EEK sees things shift gear into a dancefloor feast of pan-global polyrhythmia and hypnotic machine melody. 

Islam Chipsy & EEK bring their jubilant volley of freewheeling keyboard and locked-in double-drummer rhythms direct from Cairo, Egypt – without exaggeration one of the most exciting live propositions around right now: while prodigious minimalist composer Kit Wilmans Fegradoe unfurls deep and reverent drones at the evening’s birth.

DJ Dave Howell (FatCat Records) brings chaos, rhythm and a healthy pinch of the unknown to all parts before, between and after.
