Local hardcore-punk trio Youth Man are set to headline an intimate show at Centrala on March 9th, the evening after International Women’s Day.
The gig takes place on March 9th, and has been curated by the team behind Birmingham’s most eclectic festival, Supersonic. Youth Man certainly made an impression when they performed there last summer.
That same summer, Youth Man also signed to Oxford-based indie label Alcopop! and promptly released Five Songs, their most ambitious offering yet. Not long after, they took their abrasive sound to Brooklyn for Afropunk festival, where they performed alongside Erykah Baduh, Tyler the Creator, and Janelle Monae.
Second on the bill are experimental post-punk trio BAS JAN, who recently played alongside Black Midi at End Of The Road festival’s Christmas Party. Experimental percussionists Rattle will also be performing, fresh from supporting Protomartyr and Preoccupations in Washington D.C.
Violinist and instrument maker Sarah Farmer, who Supersonic attendees might recognise from the Ideas of Noise shed at the festival, will also be bringing her brand of sound art to the party. Salford goth duo Godspeed You Peter Andre are rounding off the bill, with their eclectic combination of their love the aforementioned pop icon with “deep, dark witch music.”
The organisers sent out the details with a call to action:
“From the production office, to the stage, to the mosh pit – Supersonic Women take up space!”
Visual artist, multi-instrumentalist, and scrounger. Always wearing headphones, probably listening to Ezra Furman, Sleater-Kinney or Goat.
