The Wire presents three shows at The Jazz Cafe

As part of our Wire 400 celebrations, we've lined up a series of shows at the North London venue

Next month we kick off our Wire 400 programme of special events with the first in a three-part series at London venue The Jazz Cafe.

First up is a live performance from The Necks on 3 May, which forms part of their UK/Europe tour promoting new album Unfold, released via Stephen O’Malley’s Ideologic Organ imprint.

This is followed by a set from The Wire 356 cover star Matana Roberts on 17 May, and a visit from Ethiopian keyboard/accordion player Hailu Mergia (supported by DJ Philou Louzolo) on 23 May.

Tickets for the events can be purchased via The Jazz Cafe.
