The region’s experimental dance scene is in rude health, and arguably artists like Geoff Kirkwood – aka Man Power – is at the forefront of its success. Also operating under the Me Me Me label moniker, on Saturday 8th October at World Headquarters he presents a free live showcase of some of the region’s most exciting talents.

Topping the bill is current Sage Gateshead artist in residence Late Girl, who uses warped samples, classical composition techniques and found sounds to create experimental electronic programmed beat music. Through her music she attempts to externalise cultural observations with a personal take and irreverent approach. Also performing is Golden Shield, aka collaborators Suade Bergemann and Steve Legget, whose microscopic attention to found sounds and field recordings coupled with an intrinsic knowledge of sound synthesis combines to create explorative cinematic soundscapes.

Geoff himself will be performing under his Bed Wetter alias, which he undertook for his Sage Gateshead residency last year. A vehicle for Geoff to explore his working-class identity, he’ll present an AV presentation of his debut album as Bed Wetter, which will get a full outing at Sage Gateshead on Friday 11th November alongside Royal Northern Sinfonia and arranger Fiona Brice.

Late Girl, Golden Shields and Bed Wetter perform a free showcase at World Headquarters, Newcastle on Saturday 8th October.
