Synthpop sensations TINY MAGNETIC PETS will be coming to The Flapper on their debut headline tour, and AT are co-hosting the Manchester date.

The band are looking to build on the success of their recent 20 date UK tour supporting synthpop legends OMD. Their set will feature new material alongside tracks from their critical and commercial hit album ‘Deluxe /Debris’ on Happy Robots Records. They will be promoting their forthcoming single ‘Radio On’ a collaboration with the Kraftwerk legend Wolfgang Flür. Their tight and energetic live set has been compared to Chvrches and described as “if Saint Etienne collaborated with Kraftwerk” (The Electricity Club).

Supported by RODNEY CROMWELL who is promoting his acclaimed EP ‘Rodney’s English Disco’. Described by Louder Than War as “brilliant wonky electronica”, tracks have featured on multiple BBC6 Music shows. His vintage-styled electronica sits sonically somewhere between The Cure, New Order and the ‘retro futurism’ of Ghostbox Records.

Also on the bill are Salford’s brilliant dark-electro, alt-dance duo Factory Acts.

Tickets £7 advance
