  A night of electronic music  

The Front Room presents:
A night of electronic music

Saturday 4 July 8pm
SVA, The Goods Shed, Stroud GL5 2HA

The Front Room returns with an exciting night of electronic music, no longer in the small 'front room' of SVA but an incredible old warehouse. Acts includes Body Clocks, Leiik, Bunki and DA Rico. Body Clocks "unique sound is created through layering and looping beats with ambient soundscapes, live double bass and guitar. Blues and classical influences are merged with experimental electronic elements, resulting in a truly immersive, yet danceable sound." Leiik " exudes a brooding sense of longing and intimacy throughout as subtle electronics build to reach the most moreish of conclusions" Just Music That I Like. Bunki is an ex-Goldsmiths, London-based producer. "This eerie, haunting and strangely captivating debut EP marks Bunki out as a definite face to watch in 2015." DIY. DA Rico is a Sheffield/Stroud producer drawing from jazz, dub, breakbeat and hip hop. "Just wonderful, wonderful stuff” - Christian Carlisle, BBC Introducing in Sheffield.

  Oliver Stanton and Twice William Quartet  

Stroud Jazz sessions presents
Oliver Stanton and Twice William Quartet

Thursday 9 July 8.30 -11pm
SVA, 4 John Street, Stroud GL5 2HA

Stroud Jazz Sessions is delighted to host master bebopper Oliver Stanton on saxophone as special guest, appearing with his quartet Twice William. Oly and his blue suede shoes have enthralled and enraptured us during his regular recent appearances at the jam session, along with quartet colleagues Aidan Pope on guitar, Tom Sladen on drums, and James Owston on bass. Oly, Aidan and Tom spend their last summer in the Forest of Dean before taking up places at Birmingham Conservatoire to seek jazz providence. This performance represents a great chance to hear them before their exuberant, energetic and free souls are subverted by the dark and powerful forces of formal jazz tuition...

Twice William's opening performance will be followed by our usual energeti-frenetic jam for all-comers to play, sing, or listen. Join us at Stroud's monthly jazz hub, the 2nd Thursday of every month.

  Speedy  

Studio Nine presents Speedy
a Harold Lloyd classic with live piano from Albert Lamb

Saturday 18 July doors 7.30pm
Goods Shed, Stroud GL5 3AP

Speedy is a 1928 silent film that was one of the films to be nominated for the short-lived Academy Award for Best Director of a Comedy. The film stars famous comedian Harold Lloyd in the eponymous leading role, and it was his last silent film to be released in theatres. The plot revolves around Harold 'Speedy' Swift's attempts to save the last horse-drawn streetcar in New York. The film contrasts the speed of life of the contemporary city with the pace of yesteryear, represented by this non-motorized mode of transport. Yankees star Babe Ruth plays one of 'Speedy's' hapless passengers.

Albert Lamb will be creating an appropriate musical accompaniment to bring out all the humour and emotion in every scene. He promises to really make these movie swing.
