We’re delighted to welcome Damon & Naomi back to Manchester!

Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang began playing music together as the rhythm section, co-songwriters, and sometime singers in Galaxie 500. The band’s three influential albums were genre-defying landmarks of atmospheric post-punk, inspiring many who followed in their wake.

Since the demise of Galaxie 500, Damon & Naomi have worked as a duo, exploring folk music, psychedelia, and collaborations with like-minded musicians. After a series of recordings for Sub Pop, they established their own label 20/20/20. Their latest, A Sky Record, was released in August 2021.

‘A beautiful album, one of the duo’s most beguiling… a calming and tender reflection on appreciating what you have in uncertain times’ – Pitchfork

‘Damon & Naomi are back to make all your folk-pop dreams melt into the sunset’ – Rolling Stone

Local support comes from new group Uncle Iroh. Imagine two crows, scratching at some parched earth. Imagine those very same crows had ideals, or even notions. Imagine that these notions held by said crows were of such a magnificence that if humanity were bestowed the notions held in the minds of these two crows, that humans would excel to a brilliant immortality full of love, understanding and wonder. But the crows remain silent, scratching at the earth. This band has nothing to do with crows.
