Partisan’s First Birthday Party: live music

4th August 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Free – £5


Partisan is celebrating our first year of residence at Cheetham Hill Road with a big birthday bash, and you’re all invited!

We’re pulling out all the stops to celebrate and make this one extra special. We’ve invited some of our favourite musicians, DJs, artists, and community groups to keep you entertained and feeling good across 2 days and 2 floors of our lovely Grade II listed community and arts centre. All welcome! (as long as you’re nice x)

SATURDAY – ALL DAY PARTY #4 IN ROOM 1 (midday-midnight) // LIVE MUSIC IN ROOM 2 (6pm-midnight)

Ajah UK – https://soundcloud.com/ajah-uk
a truly independent and unique Hip-Hop/Rock act, Ajah UK don’t conform to the hetero-normative perceptions of women and take pride in this. Music gives each band member a voice and path to freedom and together as Ajah UK they will walk that path beyond all boundaries and limitations. What constitutes their live performances is an epic and intense collaboration of words, music and entertainment that cuts the bullshit and represents everything they stand for as musicians and women.

AlgernonCornelius – https://algernoncornelius.bandcamp.com
Over the past 2 years Yorkshire bred beat-maker AlgernonCornelius has been prolific in producing “emotionally-infused”, “drugged-out and unsettling” beat-tapes. AlgernonCornelius’s musical philosophy is rooted in the art of the DJ, and thus an infinitely eclectic and boundless approach to sampling has produced some of the most disorientating music you’re likely to hear this year. Prepare to be recontextualised.

Hannah Ross – https://hannahross.bandcamp.com

Cat Apostrophe – https://catapostrophe.bandcamp.com
From the gut sad pop songs.

Marco Woolf – https://marcowoolf.bandcamp.com
A nightsong wailer and part-time wave phenomenon.

ELENA CAU – www.soundcloud.com/lc4t
This wonderful Manchester musician uses her shimmering voice, electric guitar, looping and keyboards to create thoughtful sensitive songs that will move you in delightful and unexpected ways.

RUMA– https://soundcloud.com/rumasound
Ciaran McAuley (formerly of Patterns) performs as his new modular synth based, A/V project, RUMA. Check out his interview about that and his involvement with Partisan on Birthday Cake For Breakfast: https://birthdaycakebreakfast.wordpress.com/2018/03/28/exclusive-stream-blood-moon-debut-single-from-experimental-manchester-audio-visual-project-ruma/

Godspeed You Peter Andre
