You might remember Danish troupe Efterklang from a joyous set at Supersonic last year. They're returning to Birmingham next week, to play at new venue Asylum in Hockley. It's just over the road from where Bonds used to be (home of Moneypenny's, Boogie Down Brum and most importantly Oscillate) in an oft-ignored corner of Birmingham (by me anyway) which seems to livening up with student influx and pubs like the Lord Clifden.
(The promo for Illuminant is great too)
Also coming up in Birmingham, one of the founders of Paris film collective Light Cone will be presenting a selection of work at Vivid on Saturday. And much further away, the Full of Noise festival in Barrow-in-Furness looks worth a visit.
