We are excited to announce that we will be teaming up with our good friends This City Is Ours for a really great show in March, one of our best line ups to date, if i do say so myself.
Mount Kimbie have been making waves with their first 2 releases on Hot Flush, and will be playing a full live show alongside XXXY, Denis Jones, Borland, From The Kites of San Quentin and more. Click below for more info.
For a taste of what to expect, you can check Mount Kimbie for FREE at the Red Bull Music Academy showcase at Common on January 30th. Amazing!
The last Featured Artist for 2009 and seeing us into 2010 are the extroadinarily beautiful BORLAND. For some time a favourite at Mind On Fire, Borland expertly craft the kind of lush, ambient electronica that is the perfect soundtrack to any occasion. After recently playing their first live show in Manchester and releasing the mini LP House you can expect to hear more from this 2 piece in the new year but for now enjoy the wonderful “Wildlife” which featured on the digital download MOF 004 Compilation
Theres a few really great shows to choose from next week and local night This City is Ours have a really awesome lineup at Salford’s Sacred Trinity Church that is definitely worth heading down to.
Mind on Fire favourites Borland will be playing their first full live band show, and TCIO resident band From The Kites of San Quentin will be doing their thing aswell. You can listen to both on the new MOF5 birthday compilation here.
Also playing is 7 Black Tentacles from Sheffield, who sound amazing and we’re really excited to see the 12 piece live in Manchester. Click the image below for more info, links and tuneage, and we’ll see you down there
First off thank a massive thank you to everyone who came down to any or all of our events in May, it was a very busy month for us all, and my my it was lovely to see you.
