CURTIS ELLER'S AMERICAN CIRCUS at The Cube Microplex Sat 1 June 2019 from 8pm

Curtis Eller's American Circus

"Always a knock out when he visits The Cube, Curtis Eller is a banjo 
player, songwriter and rock & roll singer. A twenty-year show business 
veteran, Eller and his band The American Circus have developed a devoted 
international following based on dynamic, highly physical stage 
performances and a catalogue of curious phonographic recordings. The 
iconoclastic musician has spent more than a decade relentlessly touring 
the club, theatre and festival stages of North America and Europe.
Eller is a gifted and prolific songwriter who's banjo-driven songs 
describe a dreamlike vision of American history where all points in time 
have collapsed into one. The American Circus is touring the UK in 
support of their latest and most ambitious album, "A Poison Melody" on 
which they have augmented their indelicate, rock & roll rhythms with a 
tempestuous cloud of horns and an graceless choir of backsliders in 
their quest to bring Eller's historically evocative compositions to 
vivid, cinematic life."

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.
