Kirsty Almeida

  • Band on the Wall, Manchester
  • £8 General ...

Just a few month’s before the release of hotly tipped album ‘Pure Blue Green’ Kirsty Almeida will be headlining a show at her native Manchester’s Band On The Wall.

An experimental craftswoman, Kirsty customises her own instruments and creates her own stage-wear, collaborating today with internationally renowned stylist Mrs Jones (Kylie’s white jump-suit, Brandon Flowers’ feathery epaulettes), and is currently working on a musical dress specifically for the forthcoming live shows.

For years, Kirsty has lived in a parallel dimension, making both music and a living on quietly productive sidelines; today, she runs a musical collective, Odbod, in her Manchester hometown (currently commissioned to record two tracks for the independent London film project ‘Patagonia’) while her name as a solo artist has turned from underground murmur to word-of-mouth phenomenon. In 2010, she just might be a pioneer.

This concert will begin at 7.30pm
