Plaid, the long-time Warp Records electronic duo have just released a new album The Digging Remedy (listen below) and that means new live shows.
Longtime Dublin promoters of Plaid, U:mack are bringing the duo to Whelan’s on September 10th and there’s a special stage setup for the show:
For this performance, Plaid will be performing behind a partial screen made up of 40 triangles and will be using newly developed software to project images & video clips onto each of the triangles triggered by the music. They will be joined by guitarist & co- writer Benet Walsh.
Tickets €17 from www.tickets.ie/umack, wav tickets and Ticketmaster.
Plaid were one of my favourite bands back in the day. Spokes and Double Figure are two of my all-time favourites.
