Double headliner show featuring Sneers and Ben Vince!
Sneers is a dark alternative rock/post-punk music project started in Berlin in late 2012 by songwriter/guitarist M.G. Blaankart and drummer Leonardo O. Stefenelli.
After releasing and touring two LPs, “For Our Soul-Uplifting Lights To Shine As Fires” (2014) and “With Flames Like Hope To Mortals Given” (2016), their third LP, recorded in Berlin in Jan/Feb 18, featuring collaboration with Kristof Hahn (SWANS) will be released on Manchester based label God Unknown Records (Mugstar, Xylorious White, Oneida, White Hills, Gnod, Minami Deutsch). SNEERS drop by the space as part of their EU/UK tour, do not miss!
Ben Vince is a prolific saxophonist and composer who radically redefines the possibilities of the saxophone through extended technique, electronic processing and an open-eared approach to collaboration.
Following a recent collaboration with Joy O on Hessle Audio, and releases on on Blank Editions, CURL, and Depth of Decay, Ben’s latest LP Assimilation (Where To Now?) sees him broaden his horizons further with guest spots from the likes of Micachu, Rupert Clervaux, Valentina Magaletti and Merlin Nova.
‘Avant-garde saxophonist Vince’s striking fourth [album] favours warped vocal samples, harrowing hand percussion and swelling waveforms, 4/5’ — The Guardian
‘An audacious solo album… that ventures to the furthest reaches of
experimental song, free jazz, uneasy ambience, and bristling techno’ — Pitchfork
And support from…
Sleep Terminal Audacious dwelling pysch hyper grunge three piece.
HAMER Leeds legends, amphetamine garage rock, hypnotic, fast and wild.
Naguals, Sheffield based post-punk pysch garage, blissfully noisy with manic vocals.
£6 on the door, BYOB, safe space rules. Have fun. Don’t be a dick.
