A fascinating project - Manchester's Delphic announce trio of intriguing 2010 Acolyte UK dates
One of the first bands to release an album this year was Delphic - "Acolyte" saw the light of day just eleven days into January and rose to number 8 in the album charts in double quick time. Since then, numerous singles have appeared, festival slots have been performed (they have another at Bestival very soon) and the odd headline tour has been mapped out. Stand by for another quick succession of dates, this time in the autumn.
The first is probably the most curious and concerns an all-nighter in the annals of inner-city Southwark. In association with Manchester's Warehouse Project venue (more on that later), Delphic have confirmed themselves as part of the line-up at the Ewer Street Warehouse on 29th October. Still in its planning stages, the band is booked to appear at 1am for a live slot. Usually the home of 'Mulletover' club nights and hush-hush gigs, Ewer Street is slowly establishing itself as 'the place to be' for exclusive parties. Early Bird tickets cost £13.50 for the whole night (it finishes at 5am), so why not take a gamble and get yourselves in with the click of a mouse?
Talking of The Warehouse Project, the hometown venue will host another Delphic performance, this time as part of an 'Acolyte' night, running until 4am. The event takes place on 30th October, costs £17.50 and features other electronic and club-sounds from Fenech Soler, The Whip and DJ sets from Foals, Zane Lowe and many more.
Finally, the trio then head to Nottingham for an appearance at Gatecrasher on Monday 1st November, tickets cost £14.50 plus fees and this is a straightforward Delphic gig. Even so, I reckon even they will feel a bit wrecked after three late nights on the trot - don't forget your cocoa, lads.
