Elevator Sound: Finlay Shakespeare + Support

— Strange Brew
Elevator Sound return to Strange Brew for a festive evening of weird & wonderful local electronics..
price: Tickets Below


A full festive treat from Bristol's Specialist Synth shop - we've rounded up a handful of our favourite local electronic acts for a mixed stocking of musical treats!

100% live acts with a focus on bringing new artists to the stage, the Elevator Sound Showcases are designed to flaunt the weird and wonderful of Bristols electronic underbelly. Our voltage-wranglers for this month:

Finlay Shakespeare - (Editions Mego, GOTO)
A one-man synth pop powerhouse, it's rumoured Finlay created a small time machine in his workshop and travelled back to 1982 where he sow the seeds for synth-pop - only to zoom back to 2021 and reap the rewards! Expect high-octane power-pop, ripping synth lines, glitched out Gore-esque vocals and so many SONGS. Actual bloody songs played live, on a modular system. Do yourself a favour and get to know - this is NOT a performance to be missed.

Bearer (ANA Sounds)
A mysterious figure amongst the trees of Bristol musical wonderland - often found head-down in the strangest of shows, always listening.. Always learning. An uneasy cocktail of industrial environments, one-hand-on-the-echo dub performance and concrete plundering. One for mechanical reflections.

Ekstasis (Slack Alice)
Half demonic noise creature, half shoegaze mist-construct - Ekstasis occupies the spaces inbetween. Their Slack Alice show promised modular noise frenzy combined with soft dreamy guitar and vocals - but this could be a wildly different affair, better get down early to find out..

In order to make our events accessible for everyone and anyone we're keeping this event series a 'Pay What You Want' entry. Any donations on Headfirst or on the door will be split between the artists to support them all equally. This also means you can directly support the artists by paying for a ticket!

Big up to Strange Brew!
