Golden Cabinet announce ace line-up of upcoming shows

The excellent Shipley music night Golden Cabinet have announced a mightily good line-up of acts for the coming months. This Saturday, February 1, Demdike Stare will be headlining at the town's Kirkgate Centre, ably supported by the gnarled, dark-hued electronics of Rejections (who'll also be playing a set at Bradford's Fuse Gallery earlier in the day; listen to last year's two-track album Resin In The Filter here) and The Michael Flower Band, followed by a bill of Ekoplekz, Dead Sea Apes, Nope and Sophie Cooper on March 1.

April 5 will see Salford noise-manglers Gnod, alongside Sun Wolf and Hey Colossus off-shoot Henry Blacker in town, while Cut Hands, William Bennett's African and Haitian rhythm-inspired techno project (and a formidable live show), will headline on May 3, with Necro Deathmort and an act TBC in support.

Says Richard Claxton, one of the event's organisers: "We decided to surprise people by putting on musical acts in an old community centre in the small town of Shipley, acts that really should be playing somewhere better. We did this because we wanted to add something to the cultural landscape of our town, we thought we could produce and promote gigs that were unique and special, but mainly we did this because it seemed like a funny idea.

"The community centre is a beautiful old Victorian school and only holds 100 people which means those that do get in are guaranteed a really intimate show. The downside of this space is that we can never use it on a Friday night because there is a tae kwon do class happening in the main hall."

Head to Golden Cabinet's website and Facebook (hats doffed to the Neubauten-inspired logo) for full details and tickets; in the meantime, have a listen to Pye Corner Audio's set from December below:
