CONCRETE KNIVES

Fusing youthful exuberance with an artistic prowess far beyond their years, Concrete Knives are a band who have illuminated stages around Europe with their unique blend of resonating guitars, elaborate melodies, charging, pounding rhythms and euphoric collective vocals – an enticing and exciting mixture which unfailingly attracts the undivided attention of all who fall into their path.

The Lexington show is to celebrate their debut album Be Your Own King being released by the revered label Bella Union. It’s an album whose songs fly the flag of all that Concrete Knives stand for, and a record which brandishes explosive dynamics, playful hooks, powerful, pulsating bass lines as well as an all important angular pop pinch.

EVENT: Fri 11th Jan – LCD Soundsystem – Farewell gig (film) at SUB89, Reading

We’ve decided to say a final goodbye to one of our favourite bands and one of the most important bands of their – and our – generation LCD Soundsystem. Teaming up with DIY and distributors for Shut Up And Play The HitsPulse Films, we’re bring them back from the dead. Kind of.

On Friday 11th January we’ll take over Reading’s Sub 89 with a big screen, full PA and lights. Onto that screen, we’ll play the entirety of LCD’s farewell Madison Square Garden show. All three and a half hours of it. And there’ll be none of that sitting down, either. It’s a gig. It’s a party. A celebration.

We’re not stopping there, either. Afterwards there’ll be an LCD 2001-2011 afterparty, hosted by Cubed DJs, featuring music from the lifespan of the band. That’s everything from Soulwax to The Rapture to Arcade Fire. This means you’ll be able to party until 3 AM!

Tickets are available from SUB89.comSeetickets.com and WeGotTickets.com
