The autumn season is looking fantastic, and September is packed with ace looking shows – most importantly we’re back at the end of month with Impulse Array and This Machine on the 27th at The Ferret – but we’ve barely got time to pause for breath before then…
On Wednesday 16th, visionary minimalist William Basinski is performing at Salford’s Islington Mill, along with a host of local support including Concrete favourite Ahrkh (with regular collaborator Sam Weaver) – Basinski plays at Liverpool’s Kazimier the following night too. His new album Cascade is totally mesmerising – check it out on youtube here.
Thursday 17th we’re back home in Preston for some underground New York hip hop (yeah, we know) at The Ferret. B Dolan is stopping at our favourite venue in support of his new album Kill the Wolf, which features slots from Aesop Rock, Buck 65 and members of Doomtree. Check him out on Youtube here.
Friday 18th we’re in Preston again for Wunderground upstairs at the Adelphi: they’re promising a night of underground tech house, tribal and techno until 4 in the morning (hopefully more of the latter).
Thomas Truax is back in town, at the Conti on Thursday 24th – his home made Heath-Robinson musical instruments and off-beat showmanship make this an essential night out for anyone with an interest in the weird. Support comes from hotly tipped Australian bands Terrible Truths and Totally Mild.
Back in Manchester on Friday 25th, Surgeon is playing at Joshua Brooks, which should need neither introduction nor encouragement to attend. Crack on.
We’ve added all these events to a listings calendar which you can find here – we’ll update it regularly with stuff in the Northwest we’re doing, going to or would like to go to – subscribe to be kept up to date!
