LIME #8 with Sean Hamilton, Monday 29th February, 7pm, Hyde Park Book Club, free entry
Leeds Improvised Music and Experimentation bring Sean Hamilton to Hyde Park Book Club. An American composer, percussionist and educator, Hamilton is particularly interested in free improvisation and electroacoustic music. Featuring performances from other Leeds-based improvisers this is an excellent opportunity to see overtly experimental music in an intimate venue.
Bill Ryder Jones, Tuesday 1st March, 8pm, Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen, £10
In light of his 2015 album release, “West Kirby County Primary”, the English multi-instrumentalist, musician and film composer is bringing his minimalist, folk-rock sound to Leeds’ Belgrave Music Hall. Think Kurt Vile’s rambling, mumbling vocals meets Mac Demarco’s iconically hazy, guitar twang.
Come Thru #3, Sat 5th March, 11pm, CHUNK, £5 advance
Come Thru number 3! Creative and positive club experiences curated by close friends of the UML – Nightwave, Lil C, Tayyab Amin, and residents Docterre and The Physical providing the soundtrack. We recommend buying tickets in advance to avoid being turned away at the door!
Super Hexagon & Future Daze with DJ Stingray, Sat 5th March, 11pm, Wire, £6 earlybirds
This small Leeds-based crew have slowly but surely put themselves on the radar as serious purveyors of all things electronic, having brought Helena Hauff and Luke Vibert to the city in the past. Next up they’ve got DJ Stingray, one of Detroit’s original techno players who cut his teeth playing alongside Moodymann in motorcycle clubs before becoming Drexciya’s tour DJ.
