Sold out.

After selling out Village Underground THREE months in advance and the viral success of their latest single, GoGo Penguin hace added a date at KOKO for their biggest show ever. Expect skittering break beats, powerful sub-bass, telepathic interplay and anthemic melodies.

Hailing from Manchester, UK, acoustic-electronica trio GoGo Penguin are pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka and drummer Rob Turner. Drawing on a heady brew of influences from Brian Eno, John Cage, Massive Attack and Aphex Twin to Manchester’s grey rain-streaked urban streets they create a brave new sound all their own. GoGo Penguin create an emotionally rich palate for the listener that has seen them hailed as the most exciting new band to emerge from the UK in years.

Their album V2.0 (Gondwana records) was named a Mercury Prize album of the year 2014 alongside albums from Damon Albarn, Young Fathers and Jungle and has won them a legion of fans across the world. In April 2015 they announced signing a three album deal with Blue Note Records and this show will be one of the first opportunities to see them perform material from their Blue Note debut album Man Made Object which will be released worldwide on 5th February 2016.
