The Glimmers Find Their Hidden Depths
Something rather cool is happening in Manchester on Thursday night (10th July). San Miguel Hidden Depths are hitting town, Joshua Brookes, to be precise, with The Glimmers in tow. If you don't know what Hidden Depths is and what they're all about, the general gist is that they, in conjunction with fine Spanish lager, San Miguel, are hosting a series of nights in Manchester and London where they release one artist name to the public ahead of time, whilst keeping other, just as tasty, sometimes tastier names up their collective sleeve.
So, to recap, this Thursday the 10th, The Glimmers (venerable Belgian DJ/production double-act, Benoelie Fouquaert and Mo Becha) are playing at Joshua Brookes in Manchester (y'know the one, on the corner opposite 5th Avenue, just down the side of the BBC on Princess St.), alongside some rather famous names. I know who they are but I'm sworn to secrecy. Let me tell you this though, I'm proper moistening in anticipation.
To tie in with all this, you lucky Yer Mam! readers get the opportunity to win a signed copy of The Glimmers' new album The Glimmers Are Gee Gee Fazzi (fine record, been mentioned on these pages before, not available in the shops). We've got two to give away and all you need to do to win one is email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the answer to this simple question...
What is the name of the recent Belgium-set crime thriller starring Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Feinnes?
Piece of piss, isn't it? In the meantime, if you want to snag yourself some tickets for the event and future London events with Secretsundaze, Chromeo and It's Pop It's Art/Fred Deakin, head on over to the San Miguel website and register. See you down the front!
In the meantime, here's a little something to whet your appetite...
