Another great week for music in Manchester! Tonight, the marvellous electromelodic-post punk band Patterns are launching their brand new single BETA in style at the Castle, with the equally talented shoegaze revivalists Louche F.C showing their support. Whats more, its free in!
Tomorrow night is the biggie – electronica/jazz pianist Bugge Wesseltoft is set to perform a UK exclusive solo gig at Band on the Wall – having already cemented his place at the top of the pile as king of contemporary jazz, he’s also worked with techno producers Laurent Garnier and, more recently, releasing a collaboration LP with Henrik Schwarz, including a knockout set at the Red Bull Music Academy. A unique music journey through downtempo, techno and jazz, the music of James Blake, for example, owes a lot to his work.
Friday night sees Greg Wilson return for an extremely rare Reels of Steel set – the disco edit pioneer is putting on a full A/V show utilising vintage reel-to-reel tape recorders. Sounds nuts..but it really works. Click the links below for more info.
