LAS ROBERTAS & KELLIES June 15th DEAF INSTITUTE
We are delighted to invite you to celebrate and witness the Manchester debuts of two of our favourite bands from the South American branch of the international pop underground!
It's almost impossible to convey our excitement. This is a once-in-a-lifetime type of opportunity to see two amazing bands from the other side of the world for less than the price of a cocktail.
Las Robertas are from Costa Rica. Their album 'Cry Out Loud' was given away for free before being re-mixed by Jon Greene (engineer for Dum Dum Girls, Crocodiles ) and re-mastered by Pete Lyman (engineer for No Age, Mika Miko, Moondog etc. etc.) ready for release on Art Fag (Dunes, Heavy Hawaii, Bleached, best coast). Since then they've shared stages with their heroes (Black Tambourine, Edwyn Collins) and their peers (the beets, german measles, davila 666, Dum Dum Girls, Japandroids, Aias) all over America and now finally in Europe where they played at Primaverasound. Thanks to Dance Magic Dance they extended their trip to include this, their first visit to the UK. Expect a 21st century take on Black Tambourine and the Runaways. Dee Dee Dum Dum's classification of her own band's sound as 'Blissed-Out Buzzsaw' could quite easily have been coined specifically for Las Robertas.

KELLIES are from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Their third album is about to be released in the UK by the legendary FIRE records and sees them expand on the feverish Rock & Roll of their earlier records with a kaleidoscopic and encyclopedic blend of garage, cumbia, dub and post-punk which, despite it's uniqueness (or maybe because of it) evokes bands as various and diverse as the co-ordinated stage outfits they've made their trademark: ESG, the Raincoats, the Slits, Nisennenmondai, the Ramones, Devo, Weave, the Flatbackers and etc. Whether singing in Spanish, English, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Catalan or French, dressed as aerobics instructors or tubes of toothpaste KELLIES live show is guaranteed to be seriously fun and completely unforgettable.
