The world, or maybe just America, but certainly the environment, might be coming to a crashing halt with the new president-elect this week. But don’t fear we’ve got a whole schedule of events that you can be sure would piss off the most evangelical republican in the reddest of red states in the middle of the Midwest. Gays. Brown people. Liberals. Women. Expect all these and more for you to not grab by the pee-you-double-ess-why.


Horse Meat Disco at The Small Horse

horse meat disco

One of the world’s most successful gay nights, and amusingly named after an Ikea scandal, Horse Meat Disco continues its occasional residency at the most appropriately named Bristol venue possible… The Small Horse. For a Friday night smattering of glitter and disco at the impossibly cheap sounding entrance price of only £4 otd this is not one to be missed.

22:00 – 04:00 | The Small Horse | £4 otd


Peaches / Black Cracker / Trinity Centre


If there’s anyone more poised to help you through any existential dread this weekend it’s Peaches, who brings her deliciously NSFW show to the Trinity Centre. It’s sold out so beg or steal yourself a ticket.

Don’t Tell Your Mother – Invasion

don't tell your mother

Either way head along to the official after-party hosted by the fabulously un-conservative Don’t Tell Your Mother. They have a special guest DJ from Frau, the all-women collective from Brighton and a guest SO special they’re keeping quiet about who it could be.

22:00 – 04:00 | Old Market Assembly | £4 otd


Purple Rain & Jam of The Year w/ Norman Jay MBE


Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life. Yes, that’s right, another symbol of the horrificness of 2016, the death of beloved musician Prince, is honoured by a wonderful sounding memorial gig up at Colston Hall with Norman Jay MBE. Let’s Go Crazy!

18:00 – 23:00 | Colston Hall | £16.50 inc booking fee
