MONDAY 24th APRIL
Want a unique Monday night? Gorilla is where you want to be to catch American quartet Deafheaven – the pioneers of the shoegaze/metal mashup genre ‘blackgaze’.
TUESDAY 25th APRIL
HAPPYNESS, HER’S & NEW LUNA
Three of the hottest established indie acts unite on Tuesday to give you one hell of a show. London trio Happyness hit Gullivers in celebration of the release of their brilliant second album Write In. Support comes from Liverpudlian industry favourites Her’s and Manchester’s very own New Luna.
SPLASHH & BLOOMS
NIGHT & DAY: 20:00–23:00
With second album Waiting a Lifetime hot off the press, dreamy Anglo-Australian quartet Splashh are made even dreamier via surf-rock support Blooms when they both play Night & Day on Tuesday.
THE STAR & GARTER: 20:00–23:00
If you’re looked for a more mellow Tuesday, then don’t miss Elvis Depressedly at The Star & Garter for anything. Lo-fi and chilled as fuck, the North Carolina duo make a rare appearance at one of Manchester’s most intimate venues.
CHAIN OF FLOWERS
Dream-pop not your thing? Then get your Joy Division vibes on and head on over to The Castle to catch Chain of Flowers – the finest Welsh post-punk outfit you’ll see this year.
WEDNESDAY 26th APRIL
London-based producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rationale is on the verge of releasing his debut album – already massively hyped from touring with Bastille and receiving praise from the likes of Pharrell and Elton John. He hits Gorilla on Wednesday for a night of heartfelt numbers and bold, genre-hopping beats.
THURSDAY 27th APRIL
ALPHA MALE TEA PARTY
Self-described as “one of them bands from Liverpool that don’t sound like a band from Liverpool”, spend your Thursday night in the company of instrumental math-rock outfit Alpha Male Tea Party at Aatma for some aggressive yet melodic tunes.
FRIDAY 28th APRIL
THE BIG MOON
DEAF INSTITUTE: 19:00–22:15
TMB favourites The Big Moon are blowing up. Debut album Love In The 4th Dimension is an absolute blinder, and to celebrate, they’re hitting the road – treating us to what will be an undoubtedly mindblowing show at Deaf. Make sure you’re here – they won’t be playing venues this small for long.
