  Tav Falco  

Tav Falco and the Panther Burns
with support Square Bomb and Dj. Set with Pavinyl

Tuesday 9th June 8pm
SVA, Goods Shed, Stroud GL5 3AP

Equal parts primal, early rock'n'roll, deviant hill country blues & avant-garde art - Memphis, Tennessee's Tav Falco’s Panther Burns are ramshackle, raw, unholy & utterly amazing. It’s is not just Music… it is a state of mind. Tav Falco is one of the truly original and romantic voices in American music - the voice that America lost and found. He is tender and virile, flamboyant, witty and dangerous. Falco brings daggers back to the stage, and HE is the one who always holds out a hand to the enemy.

Tickets: £10 advanced and £12 on door

  Simon Munnery  

Mr Fluffypunk’s Penny Gaff
Simon Munnery sings Soren Kierkegaard

Saturday 13th June 8pm
SVA, 4 John Street, Stroud GL5 2HA

Penny Gaff? Scattered amongst the genteel music halls of Victorian London were their bawdy, low-life cousins, the ‘Penny Gaffs’- rough-house variety shows bringing colourful entertainment to the great unwashed. This month’s headliner is serial innovator and multi award-winner Simon Munnery - ‘One of the funniest, most original comedians of the past twenty years’ (Guardian). Last year, Simon came to SVA with the earliest, embryonic work-in-progress of this show, in which he endeavours to perform a selection of the 19th Century Danish existential philosopher’s writings, talk about them, and make them funny. Plus anything else in between. Now see the finished, polished article- a five-star Edinburgh sensation! A new stand-up show as recently seen/heard on Comedy Central’s Alternative Comedy Experience, BBC2’s Culture Show and Radio 4’s News Quiz. Plus Bill Jones, Uta Baldauf and Jonny holding things together. Plus films, competitions, prizes and spinning tunes until late.

Tickets: £8.50 advance £10 on the door
