Straight Up & Just A Little present: HOT CHIP DJ SET (Joe Goddard and Felix Martin) + Support Tuesday 9th October | Wire, 2-8 Call Lane 11.00 - Late | £5 Advance
As winter approaches and the nights get longer, Straight Up is teaming up with Leeds'' finest purveyors of eclectic party music - Just A Little - to bring you a one-off exclusive show that will fill you with all the sunshine and warmth you need at this time of year; The mighty HOT CHIP are coming to town, and after their live show Joe and Felix are heading down to WIRE for an ultra-intimate 2 hour journey through their vast musical inventory with one of their legendary DJ sets. Whilst Jonny Bassist from The Such-And-Such Band plies his trade playing tired old indie tunes to half empty rooms around the country, the members Hot Chip have carved themselves a niche as international superstar DJs, headlining festivals and filling superclubs all over the world, based solely on their ability to make the dancefloor move - some feat for two guys who made their name with a quirky (and unbelievably successful) synthpop outfit. And as Joe Goddard makes further inroads into the world of electronic dance music with his idiosyncratic ''The 2 Bears'' project, this is a rare and frankly exciting opportunity to catch him and Felix mixing tunes in the underground confines of a club like Wire. Don''t let the (undoubtedly exceptional) sound of Hot Chip''s studio work narrow your expectations....we could reel off a list of genres and sounds that Joe and Felix might touch upon in their set, but instead just come with your dancing shoes and an open mind to be taken on a journey by two GIANTS of the scene. Support on the night comes from: --- The Straight Up Residents --- Robin Van Parsley (Just A Little) + A Very Special Guest Advance Tickets are £5 - This event will sell out!
