Berlin based musician and performance artist Peaches is no stranger to controversy, and new song Dick In The Air is her perfected blend of tripped out electronic beats and imagination fuelled production over raunchy lyrics with self-assured delivery. Best known for her extravagant costumes, wild antics on stage and even wilder crowds, not to mention her usual array of props and pranks. A Peaches show is about as far from a regular gig as you can get, it’s a festival of the fantastical. Announcing a rare show at Manchester’s Islington Mill ahead of the release of her new album Rub which features Feist and Kim Gordon amongst others, this is a chance to crush to new material as well as classics like Fuck The Pain Away and Tent In Your Pants.

Multi instrumentalist She Makes War is a pioneering revelation that will blow you away. Balancing solo a capella loops and spellbinding vocals over a jagged indie rock underlay, the female songstress has the stunning abilities to swoon whatever audience is put in front of her. Drawing mainly from her stunning debut LP Disarm and her forthcoming album Direction Of Travel, Laura Kidd’s live show at The Castle Hotel will be life affirming. Do not miss it. Book now!
Renowned for destroying live shows, your favourite Birmingham indie brat heroes are returning to Manchester for this Sound Control gig. Creating hypercolour indie that’s as Lightning Seeds and Kula Shaker as it is Wolf Alice or Peace, Superfood take in all the best bits of the six-string and turn it into a gig you’ll never forget. With the hope of new material from the storming quartet, this show looks set to be huge. Manchester, get these tickets snapped up before you miss out. Book now!
Releasing their debut album in 2012, London’s Django Django enjoyed runaway success selling over 100,000 copies in the UK alone. For a band used to booking their own gigs in Dalston basements it was a surprise to say the least. They went on to receive a Mercury Music Prize nomination and play festivals around the globe. Now back with new record Born Under Saturn, it bursts with colourful instrumentation, confident delivery, and a new gloss of studio production that takes their psych tinged indie to higher levels. Already being lauded with the same level of critical acclaim as their debut offering, the stage at Albert Hall is set for these DIY heroes. Book now!
After years at the helm of Mancunian legends Twisted Wheel, Jonny Brown will be bringing his storming live show to Night & Day Cafe and you deserve to be there. With anthems like Lucy In The Castle and Bouncing Bomb, the former frontman will be taking you through hits old and new when he plays in his beloved hometown. People of Manchester, you know what to do. Book now!
