Men: UK gig

Men return to the UK for one-off show Monday 12th April- Cargo, London

New York band MEN are set to return to the UK for a one-off London show in April. The Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective consists of core members JD Samson (Le Tigre) Michael O’Neill (Ladybug Transistor) and Ginger Brooks Takahashi (LTTR) and this show follows their packed-out shows in London and Brighton earlier this year.

MEN, who are at present unsigned, have also recently completed U.S. tours with both Peaches and Gossip, their debut, self-released EP is available to buy online now, and this show sees them take a break from recording their debut album.

MEN focus on the energy of live performance and radical potential of dance music. Their music speaks of issues such as wartime economies, sexual compromise, and the demand for liberties through lyrical content and an inventive, high energy stage show.

The group began in 2007 with the DJ/production/remix team of LE TIGRE members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman. With LE TIGRE on hiatus, when the duo began to write new songs, it made sense to merge their efforts with JD’s other new project HIRSUTE. JD and Hirsute members Michael and Ginger now comprise the core of MEN, with Johanna and artist Emily Roysdon contributing as writers, consultants, and producers.
