Tinderstciks to play Liverpool Philharmonic Hall

TINDERSTICKS make their Liverpool Philharmonic Hall debut on October 18 with a unique concert combining music and film.

In a concert of two halves, the groundbreaking British band will deliver a performance showcasing their distinctive sound.

There’s also a first half opportunity to witness Tindersticks perform the soundtracks to world-renowned French filmmaker Claire Denis’ films, projected live on stage.

Tindersticks are one of the most original and distinctive British acts, standing apart from both the British indie scene and the rash of Brit-pop guitar combos.

With more than eight albums to their name, Tindersticks craft dense, meaningful songs layered with literary lyrics, intertwining melodies, brooding vocals, and gently melancholy orchestrations.

Their latest album Falling Down a Mountain (2010) met with high critical acclaim.

Claire Denis is a Paris-based filmmaker and one of the major artistic voices of contemporary French cinema.

The first part of the show combines visionary cinema with Tindersticks' unique sound where the archive has been scoured to assemble strikingly sensual and alternately meditative and shocking clips from Claire Denis’ films.

Projected scenes from Denis’s films (Nénette et Boni, Trouble Every Day, Friday Night, The Intruder, 35 Shots of Rum and White Material) soar as the band’s live music envelops the audience.

The second half of the evening will be a concert set, by Tindersticks, of their more familiar music.

This event is not suitable for those under 18-years-old.

Tickets £18 and £24.50. Visit www.liverpoolphil.com or call 0151 709 3789.
