The Ninth Wave
+ Savage Mansion + Heir of the Cursed
Summerhall - Dissection Room
A special gig as part of Independent venue week, with The Ninth Wave, Savage Mansion & Heird of the Cursed.
The Ninth Wave are a four-piece band whose music is majestic dark post-punk laced with stealth pop hooks and a firmly DIY ethos - at one 2016 gig in their hometown of Glasgow, they created a makeshift stage from disused palettes in a railway arch. But, unlike many of their scene’s peers, they treated their scrappy live shows as if they were being Periscoped to the world, and dressed accordingly in razor-sharp outfits that looked transplanted straight from the iconic ’80s countercultural club night Blitz. As well as cementing a reputation as a must-see live act, and alongside their two early EPs being lauded by BBC Radio 1 and The Guardian, their style nous also led to organic collaborations with fashion iconoclasts including Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane and London’s most disruptive new designer, Charles Jeffrey.
