Defcon Launch Gig at Magnet – Sunday

A nice peaceful gig at Magnet on Sunday Mar 4 to (re)launch Defcon mag. and because they are our friends they’ll be offering half-price tickets if you mention ArtinLiverpool (limited to 2 per group)

Liverpool’s out of control satirical magazine DEFCON is out on the streets again next week. But not before it offends the 70’s chic of the city’s Magnet venue this Sunday evening for a gala night of surprise and atmospherics.

New York’s masters of spectral folk WHITE MAGIC will be headlining the event. Headed by the beautiful voice and subtle songwriting textures of Mira Billotte, the band are currently touring around Europe spreading their Gnostic intrigue and unreason. The band are one of the newer acts on the Chicago Drag City Label, an organisation who can boast to releasing some of America’s finest independent music. Bonnie Prince Billy and Joanna Newsom are proof of their adroit musical perception. White Magic will piece together up your shattered souls.

Truculent electronic wizard ANIGMAN will show a different side to his musical persona on the evening by treating us to a set of soaring ambience. Running through the special wires and atomic chaos of his weird machines will be sounds only his head has known up until now.

Biltone play with guitars, violins and double basses to create a sound of classical simplicity. This three piece have been playing shows in the North West for a couple of years now, gaining an enthusiastic following and treating audiences to the more serene muses and philosophies of life.
