Welcome to Downtown, a seedy side street, red light delight, an immersive performance with clattering electronics. Locked in a gritty interrogation room, Kelan's neo-noir solo project "Downtown Live" returns from London and European tour to Bristol for an extended stage performance at the Cube Theatre
A household name in Bristol, Max Kelan has navigated the industrial underbelly of his hometown for a hot minute. Performing as part of Bad Tracking and Salac, his visual work also carries weight, providing music videos and live visuals too many including The Pop Group, Pinch, Fuck Punk, Giant Swan, Hodge and Tod Daraku to name a few. He also found time to run the exxxtra sweaty Industrial tinged party, Slack Alice and release a book of poetry and spoken word. Now producing and writing music as Kelan, this solo project see’s him lyrically dealing with the UK housing crisis, seedy downtown pockets of fun, Cannibalism and a further exploration into the dark corners of his mind, all set to muscular drum machine workouts.
Robbie and Mona
Robbie & Mona is couple-duet, William Carkeet and Eleanor Gray, who have found a surreal creative outlet making their gorgeous scrap-book glitch pop with each other. Their debut album ‘EW’ experiments fearlessly with sonic textures and song structures, expertly toeing the line between deep emotional resonance and alienating disarray.
Back by extremely popular demand (who remembers the original Wrestle Mania! events at The Surrey Vaults?). DJ Wolf of Bristol's Schwet crew brings his collection of Wrestling VHS, video games and a selection of Nu Metal, Hair Metal and Wrestling theme tunes to the 2nd room.
