They have played in Bristol regularly including St George's which they have headlined. Now they are honouring the cube with their presence and giving us a chance to see this great band perform live in the intimate surroundings of the Cube.

Tonight 3 Cane Whale will play two  sets. The first opening tonight show will be followed by a break, the second of these will follow and be accompanied by a series of short films made for the band which they will bring to life! The films were commissioned and produced by 2017 Filmic Festival, The Watershed and St George's and created by around 10 different film makers.

Bristol has strong sense of social responsibility. From the protests rallied against Tesco, to the community boosting Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft. The Cube cinema is another excellent example. In 1998 a group of Artists who at the time ran “underground mobile cinema events” took it over and turned it into what it is today. It stands equally as both a cinema and an arts venue. Inside it has a raised stage and tiered seating, in the old theatre style, which can hold just over 100 people.

Driven by a strong set of ethics it refuses to serve Nescafe and even goes as far as to make its own brand of cola called (funnily enough) Cube Cola.

The cinematic screenings it puts on are always more interesting than what will be on at your local Odeon and it shows a lot of world cinema which we may never come across without it. The same goes for the live music events. The gigs are varied and include art and dance performances, live concerts, discussions and theatre.

Please note, The Cube Microplex is an independent cinema and requires membership to attend events, this will cost you just one pound on your first visit and lasts a life time.
