We are thrilled to announce an exciting event coming to Manchester in December!
Join us at Manchester Club Academy on 11th December 2015 for an evening of live music with all money raised going to support of the work of Music Action International and Freedom from Torture North West.
As well as a performance from our very own Stone Flowers, who will be playing tracks from their new album Ngunda, we are pleased to announce that they will be joined by specials guests including local legends Spaceheads and young Welsh band Houdini Dax and Syrian refugee artist Adz.
Houdini Dax are a Cardiff trio consisting of Jack Butler, Owen Richards and David Newington. Blurring the lines between art and pop, ‘The Dax’ have honed their own signature blend of rock n’ roll; three-buttoned punk-funk, rich in rock and unapologetic in harmony. Houdini Dax are fast becoming one of Britain’s most enthralling, infectious and energetic live bands.
Launching their craft in the 1990s, Spaceheads – aka Andy Diagram (James, Pere Ubu) on trumpet and Richard Harrison on drums – pioneered a live electronic looping sound that is beat driven with fragmented melodic bursts and disjointed cut up samples. Over the course of their career they have produced ten albums and toured across Europe and the USA many times. This show is an opportunity to hear their new material from the recently released LP A Short Ride on the Arror of Time.
Adz is a young refugee beatboxer who fled Syria with his father in 2012. He taught himself production skills watching YouTube videos, and has been working with Music Action International inspiring young people and raising awareness of the challenges faced by refugees and asylum seekers.
