Kino is a not-for-profit, and completely unfunded, arts space.
We are committed to supporting DIY arts and grassroots activism, and aim
to work with promoters, groups, organisations, and individuals who share
the qualities, outlooks and values that are important to us.
The events side of Cafe Kino (as well as other areas of the co-op) rely
heavily on the voluntary time and effort given by our staff, who work
hard to bring you a programme that we are very proud of.
We are proud to be an all-ages venue. There are no age restrictions on
any events at Cafe Kino unless otherwise stated.
The main entrance to the cafe is step-free and on the ground floor. However,
most events take place in the basement area. Unfortunately, due to building
restrictions, this space is only accessible by

by henry lane
is the long-time moniker of Stephen Lane - prolific songwriter who has
collaborated with Movietone, Headfall and most recently Tammy Denitto
of Linus. Inspired as much by cult and classic British TV, americana-folk
and electronic music, his songs are laced with dark humour and melancholie
twists. A hush and a whim. Matching acoustic to keyboard, his inventiveness
and untrained enthusiasm result in a lush and soulful awkwardness... At
once, enchanting and mournful.
Now relocated to Norwich, Stephen has been a long standing, and well-respected,
member of the Bristol diy music scene since 1997, and as Vase has released
five albums and two singles on the Hand Idiom label.
Over the years Vase has played gigs with: Godspeed You Black Emperor,
Jeffrey Lewis and Peter Stampfel, Movietone, Crescent, Mat Riviere, Headfall,
The Microphones, The Middle Ones, Andre Herman Dune, and Third Eye Foundation,
"This is just the kind of album that I enjoy listening
to of a morn. I know not who this Stephen Lane character is, but he plays
restrained, dinky hushed acoustic pop & dreamy laments with the aid
of a rustic guitar & a Casio keyboard. I find the mood of this album
thoroughly enchanting. His voice is a fragile, wistful thing that tenderly
coats his rattly, twinkly lullabies beautifully. This is a delicate recording
that exudes much warmth & intimacy, I've not been so engaged by this
kind of music in a while. It often recalls prime early Static Caravan
with its blissed merging of chinking music-box electronica & earthy
sing-song folkish musings. In essence 'A Distant Green For a Drier Shade'
is spiritually linked to much of the twinkly DIY stuff we used to sell
bucket loads of 10 years ago. I can't start pushing any comparisons as
every artist I consider seems a tad misleading. Vase has his own distinctive
charm! Unstylized & pure of heart, this is one lovely, innocent recording
that is truly loveable. Give it a home right now, you know you want Vase
in your life!!"

TRISTAN BURFIELD has been described by a new band a day as a modern day
electro "polymath". His music often incorporates lo-fi elements
such as videogames, toys, junk, glitches and noise. His sound refuses
genre and rejects lazy and outmoded cliches.
Tristan has played shows throughout the UK, and is becoming a regular
staple on the festival circuit (Bring Yourself Fest, Toiletronica, Bristol
Ashton Court Festival and Cambridge Outdoor fest). His music has recieved
airplay on mainstream Radio (Radio 1, XFM, Resonance FM).
Recently his projects have been enhanced by the encorporation of visual
elements, his music has been used as an accompliament to a silent surrealist
film [Blood of a poet], combined with small format film [Shimmies in Super-8]
and has been juxtaposed against found manipulated material [Shadow Pictures].
The visual strand of his work has been strengthened via a series of Photographic
exhibitions shown in galleries such as Colchester slackspace and Norwich
Art Centre. Tristan has a split floppy disc and full length CDR release
on Quagga Curios Sounds, he has released music via Net labels such as
Monkey Love Records and continues to release music through his own label.
