Unknown Mortal Orchestra @ Cargo, London 05/02
The Portland via Auckland three-piece are celebrating the release of their second album II in London tonight and we can’t explain quite how but by the end of tonight you’ll probably wish you could swim and sleep like a shark does too.
Kraftwerk play Autobahn @ The Tate Modern, London 06/02
The album that made them legends. Kraftwerk kick off their residency at The Tate Modern with their 1974 release Autobahn. If you were lucky enough to get tickets amidst the craziness you are in for what could quite possibly be a mind altering experience.
Thurston Moore @ Glee Club, Birmingham 07/02
The Sonic Youth man is on tour with jazz legend Michael Chapman and we hope you’re just as excited as we are to see the results of that mixture.
