Grant-Lee Phillips / The Deaf Institute Manchester 20.04.18

Grant-Lee Phillips brings his music to life right here at Deaf Institute on the 20th April 2018! Grant-Lee Phillipss gifts for reconciling classic touchstones with an adventurous sensibility has distinguished his work since he first emerged as the frontman of the acclaimed trio Grant Lee Buffalo in the early 90s. At once cinematic in scope and disarmingly intimate, the bands music set the table for a varied, captivating solo career that embraced electronic soundscapes (Mobilize, 2001), reimagined country-rock (Virginia Creeper, 2004), faced fatherhood (Little Moon, 2009), delved into his own native American heritage (Walking in the Green Corn, 2012), and reflected upon his own life-changing move from Los Angeles to Nashville (The Narrows, 2016). Whether fronting a band or performing solo, he is a riveting live performer which many discovered through his role as the town troubadour on the cult television hit The Gilmore Girls (both in its original run and the 2016 continuation). As the past and present converge and the journey of Grant-Lee Phillips continues, his craftsmanship continues to blossom. In times of tumult, he awakens comfort and hope by shining light into darker corners. I hope to express my faith in people, my faith in the good ideas were capable of, and that regardless of what opposition we face, the fact that we can surmount these things, he concludes. We can stare them down, laugh at them, belittle them, and drive the darkness back into a hole. Music is a way of kicking some of these giants out at the knees along with a bit of gallows humor: All the noose thats fit to print Tickets are on sale NOW: http://bit.ly/2wzvhPo

Detroit Swindle / Byron The Aquarius / K15 - Hidden

The third collaboration of specially curated events between Off Beat and Family Tree Events brings us to Hidden! Heading up the Blue Room for an extended 4 hour set we have Amsterdam legends Detroit Swindle and down in The Den we have jazzy house maestro Byron The Aquarius supported by K15 LINE UP: DETROIT SWINDLE [4 HR EXTENDED SET] Bringing out regular releases through their record label Heist, and curating live shows consisting of entirely analogue hardware, Detroit Swindle have proven to be knockout house producers from the get-go. In addition to this, the boys are also enthusiastic record diggers and synth hunters, something which shows through their DJ sets, which range from rare cuts of disco all the way through to african inspired funk. Detroit Swindle have proven to shine in their selections time and time again, and we\'re sure this latest visit to Hidden will be no different. BYRON THE AQUARIUS [2 HR SET] DJ sets that burst with juicy Jazz-filled Detroit styled house - this can only describe Byron the Aquarius. Since being trained in Jazz from an early age, Byron took a shine to house music, and has had an extremely eventful musical career as a result. Having releases on Theo Parrishs Sound Signature and Kyle Halls Wild Oats Music, and collaborating with artists such as Flying Lotus, Onra, Kai Alice and Jay Scarlett, we can slowly build up a picture of this mans genius. Recently he has been flying across the world on huge billings alongside Moodymann and playing at Dekmantal, and scoring plenty of gigs with Theo Parrish and other Detroit royalty. Expect music laden with intricate instrumentals (he's bringing his own synths!) and astonishing groove. K15 [2 HR SET] Tottenham's K15 is simply an extremely talented musician. Like Bryon he shares an astute warmth to melodies and carries an incredible soulful Detroit atmosphere to everything he touches. His most notable production, on the Wild Oats imprint Insecurities EP, has been dubbed by many to being one of the best house releases of 2014. His flawless process of mixing graceful ambient synth chords progressions alongside sturdy claps and kicks allowed for this groovy, yet elegantly raw masterpiece to be created. Alongside this, his DJ sets are as versatile as his productions - expect an unrivaled exhibition of Jazz, Funk, Hip Hop, Broken-beat and swinging Latin House grooves to grace the Hidden den. OFF BEAT & FAMILY TREE DEEJAYS Expect an eclectic 6 man b2b from: Rivington, Zephyr, Lawrence, Easyy Sounds, Hiren & Spencer. TICKETS --> http://bit.ly/2DU5YiV See you there.
