Experimental boundary pushers Xiu Xiu will be performing live this June in our EartH Theatre.

The current iteration of Xiu Xiu includes existing members Jamie Stewart and Angela Seo, now joined by old friend and new member David Kendrick (Sparks, Devo, Gleaming Spires).
Support from Me Lost Me.
Me Lost Me delights in experimenting with songwriting and storytelling, creating a beguiling mix of soaring vocals and atmospheric electronics that playfully push the boundaries of genre. Led by Newcastle-based artist Jayne Dent who takes influence from folk, art pop, noise, ambient and improvised music, the project has transformed since 2017 from a solo endeavor to an expanded group; regularly collaborating with acclaimed North-East jazz musicians Faye MacCalman and John Pope. Me Lost Me’s music has been described in The Guardian as “stripping folk back to its bones while letting its future echoes bleed out”, and by BBC Radio 6’s Tom Robinson as a “brilliant peculiar noise”. Me Lost Me’s incredible new album ‘RPG’ is due for release on Upset The Rhythm this July!
