New Jersey pop nerds Ducktails bring their summery hooks to Soup Kitchen in May. The lo-fi act that brought us earworms ‘Letter of Intent’ and ‘Headbanging In The Mirror’ launch their European tour in Manchester, although for this tour they’re stripped down to their core membership of one: Real Estate’s Matthew Mondanile. If you’re not aware of Ducktails, image a delightfully hazy version of Future Islands. Support will come from the former members of California noise outfit The Skaters, namely Spencer Clark as Typhonian Highlife, and James Ferraro whose recent output includes ring-tones for an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo.

Mon 8 May, Soup Kitchen, 31-33 Spear Street, Manchester M1 1DF. Tel: 0161 236 5100, 7.30pm, £11,
