To celebrate new single Basquiat and a brand new LP, the infectiously groovy Ibibio Sound Machine have announced intimate club dates including a two night party over at YES’ Pink Room in March. Fronted by Nigerian singer Eno Williams, the band personify a post-punk West African inspired electro workout. Their eponymous debut release on Soundway Records has become a modern day classic, and subsequent work has only upped the ante in terms of songwriting and energy. Previous Manchester shows have been electric enough for the band to want to do two nights in our fair city, so booking early is strongly advised.
