Golden Cabinet
Live music: Gnod, Sunwolf & Henry Blacker

£6.50 (£8 on the door)
Gnod are returning to play a second Golden Cabinet gig in Shipley less than six months after what was their awe inspiring show. The absolute beauty inherent in Gnod lies in their musical legacy that continues to grow, reinvent and transcend over any given influence or genre.
Sunwolf: a meltdown of complete amplifier worship - monolithic sized chunks of instrumental psyche with walls of riffs that blend against their more ethereal and downbeat doom interludes.
Henry Blacker: three piece ensemble churn out a bass heavy and angular noise vibe with a large smothering of fuzzed out seventies boogie rock.

Expect more captivating visuals and our bar, serving ales, wines and a range of soft drinks.
The gig aims to finish in time for the last train to Leeds.

The Swimmer
Film: Bicycle Thieves

£4 (£3 concession)
Anna’s middle class childhood is in all going perfectly until massive social movements sweep through France in the late 1960s. Her wealthy parents, a lawyer and a journalist, suddenly abandon their comfortable lifestyle and instead adopt a more politically correct ‘proletarian’ existence… Witty, charming and insightful.
More information is available at the Shipley Film Society website

Golden Cabinet
Live music: Cut Hands, Necro Deathmort, Isnaj Dui

£9 (£10.50 on the door)
Cut Hands: With an emphasis on obscure African percussion elements and Haitian vaudou music, Cut Hands music have featured in many films including Siberia: Krokodil Tears (2011), Inside Syria (2011), Kings Of Cannabis (2013) and Julien Temple's Glastonbury (2012).
Necro Deathmort Filth ridden soundscapes jostle against the ambient hints of maligned trip-hop that is captured and let loose from their sonic bass heavy malevolence.
Isnaj Dui: Standing awkwardly between neo-impressionism and electronica, Isnaj Dui conveys a minimal yet capturing sound using electronically manipulated flutes and homemade instruments.
