Tuesday 25th June 2013

Deerhoof @ Gorilla, Manchester

The enigmatic San Francisco based noise pop experimentalists will be turning in a very rare performance at Gorilla Club. The endlessly talented four piece have, since 1994, been one of the most uncompromising, challenging, and most respected bands of recent times. Now with 11 self produced album under their belts and no signs of losing their tenacious approach to their craft, Deerhoof’s one off live performance is a must for those looking for an exciting and genuinely different approach to their music.

Jamie XX @ Gorilla, Manchester

After already hosting Mercury Prize winners The XX in the past, Now Wave turn their attention to the band’s main man - Jamie XX. Since joining the XX in 2007, Jamie XX’s career has gained considerable momentum, both as a producer and a remixer. His signature sound which moves between indie pop, electronic, garage and experimental dubstep has gained him a wealth of fans and has lead to remix work for everyone from Radiohead to Florence and the Machine, and Gil Scott Heron to Four Tet.

He will be joined by the irrepressible Illum Sphere - another producer that has been turning heads with a unique approach to electronic music, taking cues from right across the spectrum to create his own take on dance music.

Flume @ Gorilla, Manchester

Now Wave continue to remain at the cutting edge of musical movements by inviting Australian electronic innovator Flume for his Manchester debut. Since becoming a hero in Australia with a number one self titled album that has blown away fans and critics, it’s surely only a matter of time before before he repeats his success in this country. His appearance on 18th of July is a unique opportunity to catch the infectious Aussie wonder kid before he goes stellar over here.
