A quick post about a couple of ‘other guys’ that you can check out for yourself if you’re in and around South London on Saturday September 27th. Musician and Filmmakers Bright Blue Gorilla are screening their film ‘Go with Le Flo’ and performing a mini gig at The Stables behind The White Lion in Streatham and it promises to be a fantastic night.
‘Go with Le Flo’ is a comedy film in French and German, with English subtitles. It is a fabulous independent film embracing the creative spirit and made with a sense of joy that spills out from the screen. It tells the tale of Deli owner Florian and his turbulent love life as he pursues film star Camille, whilst his friend Jenny secretly harbours feelings for him. It’s a classic romantic comedy tale and humour and entertainment runs through its veins. From the first image of Florian on his Vespa skirting through the streets of Berlin, the stage is set for the fun to follow, as the film delivers a modern story with an old school feel and bags of charm.
So, who exactly is Bright Blue Gorilla? If you haven’t heard of them, they are the fabulous Michael Glover and Robyn Rosenkrantz. Originally hailing from LA, they have been travelling the world making music and films since 1990 and ‘Go with Le Flo’ is their fifth feature film. They are the very essence of independent film and their enthusiasm and energy is infectious.
On the 27th, as well as screening the film they will be performing afterwards and it’s all taking place in the Stables behind The White Lion in Streatham. It’s an intimate space that hosts lots of events and activities and is just a step away from the pub itself. The White Lion is a unique place; a pub embracing music and the arts that reaches out in to the community. There is always something happening, with live music to tickle your ear drums and a great vibe that makes you feel right at home.
If you fancy a night of film, music and fun, then you have to get yourself down to the Stables/White Lion. Tickets are on sale now, so why not head that way and try out all these ‘other guys’. (And, as if you need any more reason, half the ticket price goes to the Charity Music4Children).
