HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Fri May 22 - Micachu and the Shapes + Jennifer Evans + Sworn Virgins at Windmill
An extremely rare gig by wonky pop exponents Michachu And The Shapes, whose brilliantly mangled take on day-glo pop results in songs with echoes of everyone from Coco Rosie, Le Tigre, The Slits and Captain Beefheart. Michachu - aka Mica Levi - has been concentrating on compositional work recently (she composed the soundtrack to the Scarlett Johnasson movie "Under The Skin"), so this is a chance you shouldn't miss to see M&TS live.
