Montreals fantastic Indie band Wolf Parade play Club Academy in Manchester on Friday 21st May 2010 and full moon or not, you should definitely make sure you get yourself out and down to Manchesters best live music venue for some howling good fun.
Formed in 2003 and initially funding their own EPs, Wolf Parade may shy away from comparisons to their citys most successful export, Arcade Fire, but in fact their sound highlights a band perhaps even more diverse and experimental but just as melodic.
Whilst working with Modest Mouses Isaac Brock, the band came up with an eponymous debut EP before releasing their first album, Apologies to Queen Mary on the Indie Sub Pop label to critical acclaim in 2005.
Three years later At Mount Zoomer followed, to similar appeal and the band are currently working on their third release, so this is your chance to catch some new songs before anyone else as their UK tour comes to Manchester.
With each band member also involved in side projects, it seems such creativity only helps cement the bands reputation as one of the most exciting new groups to emerge for years.
Mixing guitars, percussion and funky synth sounds devised by Hadji Bakara, Wolf Parade are set to be huge. With terrific vocals from front man Dan Boeckner and one of Canadas most interesting songwriting teams, if you're into the Indie scene and have already discovered the delights of Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire or our very own Radiohead then make Wolf Parade your favourite new band.
Here at Skiddle you can purchase advance tickets for just £12.50 for the gig, making sure you not only catch them in this great, intimate venue, but aren't disappointed when they undoubtedly sell out.
While you're out in Manchester why not have a few drinks and enjoy yourself, saving the stress of travelling home or missing the end of the gig to catch a train by grabbing a room and checking out our great hotel deals and rates on nearby pads.
We recommend The Palace just a short walk down Oxford Street (and conveniently near some great kebab houses for a late night snack) with its vibrant feel and comfy rooms.
Or try the Ibis on Charles Street, closer and more affordable and handy for the student nightlife, as is the newly-refurbished Days Hotel on Sackville Street, not far from the venue.
