We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be supporting Electric Six at the Spring and Airbrake, Belfast on November 25th!
Known widely known for their big hits Gay Bar and Danger! High Voltage, Electric Six have been consistently releasing albums and rocking stages across the world for the last ten years.
This gig is on a Friday and is guaranteed to be an evening of pure mayhem – get down early and help us get the party started!
Here’s what promoters CDC Leisure had to say about Electric Six:
“Detroit-based rock six-piece Electric Six, famous for banging tracks ‘Danger, High Voltage’, ‘Gay Bar’ and ‘Dance Commander’ have announced an intimate date in Belfast at The Spring & Airbrake on Friday 25th November. Tickets entitle the gig goer access to Disco A Go Go in the Limelight after the show. Tickets are on sale Wednesday 9th March.
Electric Six’s 2002 breakout single ‘Danger! High Voltage’ was an infectious dance-rock number, the single reached number 2 on the UK singles chart, and they enjoy icon status in that nation. Their second single, ‘Gay Bar’, released in 2003, became a hit as well in the UK, reaching #5 in the charts and further aided the group’s growth.
Since the release of the their debut single ‘Danger High Voltage’ Electric Six have released 7 studio albums, the latest ‘Zodiac’ was released in September 2010. Zodiac begins in a most hauntingly poppy fashion with ‘After Hours’, aesthetically borrowing more from the Martin Scorcese film of the same name than with the Velvet Underground song of the same name.
Zodiac differs from many of its predecessors in the Electric Six discography. It is largely lower-fi, not necessarily in sound, but in essence. Tracks like ‘I Am A Song!’ and ‘Table and Chairs’ see the band embracing its love of The Poppy Family, Neil Diamond and The Doors.
But Electric Six will always hold the centre with equilibrium force. Songs like ‘Jam It in the Hole’, ‘Clusterf**k!’ and ‘American Cheese’ show you that Electric Six is never done being the band that you want them, to be.”
