Ravelings of Earth, rebel! Absorb the mutated frequencies of Cosmic Dross. There are no Earth words to describe these sounds. But you will learn how to love and dance again.

This is your future. Put down the weapons. Unite. And colonise space.

If Douglas Adams wrote about a party band, it would be Henge.

Having set up their ‘Earth base’ in Manchester around four years ago, Henge have performed their deeply wholesome brand of space-rave to hundreds. Their elaborate costumes and stage set up make them the perfect party band, and as a result they’re in demand up and down the country in the run up to what’s sure to be a busy festival season. On April 7th they bring their intergalactic shindig to The Sunflower Lounge. Expect pumping bass, acid-house percussion, and a man with a plasma ball on his head.

Opening for Henge is Shunya, an Irish multi-instrumentalist who combines his classical violin experience with electronic and jazz influences. His live band ranges from a duo to a twelve piece, and he recently gained attention collaborating with DJ Yoda.
