Everything Everything and Dutch Uncles to lead the celebrations

Manchester’s Deaf Institute is set to celebrate its eight birthday on Friday 12 August.  One of Manchester’s most loved venues, the Deaf Institute has witnessed countless epic club and gig nights, gaining a reputation as one of the best small venues in the country and winning a place in the hearts of music lovers.

The celebrations, running from 6.30pm onwards, will witness a night of amazing live music and a stellar roster of DJs with two of the city’s best bands returning to their roots for an intimate show.

Since breaking out of the local scene Everything Everything have become one of the best new bands in the country. A group who’ve proven themselves to be one of the most inventive bands in British music, on a never-ending quest to bring creative ambition back to pop music. Their latest record, Get To Heaven, gatecrashed the Album Charts Top 10 and garnered near-universal acclaim.

They’ve also managed to get Manchester favourites Dutch Uncles on the bill! The band returned last year with new album, O Shudder, and played their largest headline show to date at The Ritz. They’re a group who manage to alchemise inimitable time-signature mayhem into art-pop perfection. Live, they raise things to another level, with Duncan’s idiosyncratic dance moves coming to the fore and members swapping instruments mid-song, so don’t miss it up close and personal in the music hall.

Also on the bill is electronic producer DNCN, making his live return after a 7 year hiatus and returning to his experimental roots, whilst BBC6’s Mark Riley will also be DJing.

And to top it off, the Deaf Institute will be bringing an amalgamation of its newest and best club nights throughout the night with funk, soul and disco cuts from it’s You Dig? night and the finest ’80s smash hits courtesy of its flagship night Girls On Film.

The roster is completed with Nongi bringing fresh sounds from the dusty streets of her hometown Bophelong, plus some awesome world music. So Flute bring modern house and techno, and long-time Deaf Institute faves Doodle, who have been throwing parties in their basement for two years, share the decks with Piccadilly Record DJs.  And not to forget the regular Spoti-Friday in the main bar!

Tickets for the Deaf Institute eight birthday celebrations go on sale at 9am on Tuesday 5 July.
