Polarity follows Jon Hopkins’ incredibly successful Singularity tour, which saw him perform sold out solo live shows, festival dates, and DJ appearances across the globe. Polarity traverses different musical territory to Hopkins’ previous work, tethering together “the two disparate elements of harshness and fragility in [his] music,” and utilising seated venues for a more meditative and wider-ranging experience.

Strange Brew, Bristol
Show 1: 7.30PM // Show 2: 10.30PM
Shapeshifting artist Yves Tumor and Its Band bring their supernormal experimental fuzz to Bristol’s newest independent haunt Strange Brew, for both an evening and matinée show.
Following 2020’s year-defining LP ‘Heaven To A Tortured Mind’ on Warp Records, Yves is preparing to continue their artistic reinvention launched by the glamorous rock single ‘Jackie’. One of contemporary music’s last true enigmas.
THURSDAY 12 MAY 2022
7pm – 11pm
Viagra Boys bring their live show to SWX Bristol. An unapologetically raw sextet comprised of classically trained jazz musicians, karaoke loving tattoo artists and seasoned hardcore scene veterans. Churning out pulsating sounds from the sub levels of contemporary rock music – a bellowing, unstoppable force majeure of latter-day punk, PTSD disco and synthetically enhanced kraut.
