Brooklyn’s Dirty Projectors have gone from strength to strength since founder David Longstreth released his first LP under this name, with their seventh and latest album Swing Lo Magellan following a collaborative EP with Bjork. Here’s a rare opportunity to see them live in the UK – and in Manchester, there’s the added bonus of catching them at Gorilla, Trof’s newly refurbished venue (formerly greenroom) opposite the Ritz. Check out the heart-shattering melody of Rise Above.

Sun 14 Oct, Gorilla, 54-56 Whitworth Street West,M1 5WW, Tel: 0161 407 0301, 7.30pm, £15 adv,
