CONVERSE GIGS @ 100 CLUB ANNOUNCE
DELOREAN FOR MAY SHOW
Delorean and support guests Extraperlo, Please Wait and Univers confirmed for Converse Gigs @ 100 Club on Friday 31st May 2013
With summer and the hope of sunshine fast approaching, Converse sees no better way to get the party started than hosting infamous Spanish dance/indie legends Delorean at 100 Club, along with support from Extraperlo, Please Wait and Univers.
In the year 2000 an angst-fueled punk band were born in a small Basque coastal town. Their name was Delorean. They devoted themselves to the pursuit of fine guitar music tinged with their love for all things electronic. In 2007 they moved to Barcelona, focusing their efforts on computer-led writing and production. After remixing the likes of the XX, Cold Cave and Franz Ferdinand, Delorean have cemented their place as one of the most exciting dance acts around.
Extraperlo were formed in 2009 and for the last three years they've been flat out with a busy touring schedule while also managing to release two albums. Their latest release “Delírio Es-pecífico” came out last year to critical success. Fusing pop hooks, indie catchiness and dance rhythms Extraperlo sound like no other.
Since starting out as a group of bored teenagers trying to find something to do during the cold winter months, Please Wait have come a long way. Fresh from winning a music competition in their local city and downsizing from a four to a three piece they have found their voice and it is loud! If you like ‘90s post-rock/hardcore, then Please Wait is the band for you.
Univers may have been around for less than a year, but what a year it's been. Having recorded their first record and playing a host of shows in Catalonia as well as the prestigious Primavera Festival, they bring a fun and energetic shoegaze sound laced with an indie feel.
Tickets are FREE and will be available exclusively from Wednesday 15th May via the Converse UK website: www.converse.co.uk/conversegigs
