As part of its new Music Matters season, Selfridges Trafford will transform its menswear department into a bespoke pop-up gig venue for two exclusive live shows from doyens of Manchester’s alternative music scene – Dutch Uncles and Jesca Hoop.
On Thursday 7 September the Breakout Bandstand will host art rock darlings Dutch Uncles. Following critical acclaim for their fifth studio album Big Balloon and a sell-out UK tour, the bands angular pop anthems in the context of the store is going to provide an unmissable spectacle.
Performing on Friday 8 September is California-raised, Manchester-based chanteuse Jesca Hoop. Bewitching audiences with her beautiful alt-folk ballads for almost a decade, Jesca’s set is certain to be the perfect climax to the live events.
Music Matters at Selfridges is a national campaign that celebrates music as the lifeblood of the cultural identity of our city and an essential expression both of individuals and communities. The season will include a host of events, pop ups, partnerships and products.
Linda Hewson, Selfridges’ Creative Director said: “We want Music Matters at Selfridges to celebrate and honour the power of live music. We hope the campaign will remind visitors to our stores of the intrinsic value and originality of the music experience. Let’s make as much noise as we can and think about why music matters so much.”
Tickets are available for just £10 per night including free drinks and are also redeemable against any in-store purchase on the evening.
