With celebrity fans including Liam Gallagher, Marc Riley and Terry Christian, Girl Peculiar are set to draw the crowds at the next Wired In event.

A two-hour mix of music, films, photography, dance and spoken word is the line-up for the event in the Dukes Round Theatre on Monday April 22.

And top draw will be darlings of the Manchester/Salford music scene, Girl Peculiar who are currently gaining a growing army of celebrity fans.

The band have supported The Fall on numerous occasions and have played shows in Denmark and Thailand as well as at festivals at Glastonbury, Kendal, Ravenstone, Salford and Fom Fest.

They were featured in Marc Riley’s Top Ten for 2011 following a live session on his 6 music Radio Show.

The band’s second single Believe is out in May followed shortly after by their debut album. More music is provided by Morecambe’s rising star Joe McCorriston and Lee Affen who will provide a live soundtrack to short films by Sarah Thomas and Richard Davis.

Spoken word will come from Wigan-based poet Louise Fazackerley whose work has recently been displayed in the Olympic Stadium as well as Wigan Wallgate Railway Station.

Louise is often commissioned by regeneration projects, environmental groups and youth organisations.

She also works as part of a collective of poets and contemporary dancers called The Risktakers.

Described as Lowry - esque, she paints pictures with words – the working mother, the smackhead next door, Lolita and her lot.

Wired In is also hoping to have various members of Ludus Dance perform during the event and is planning to show short film Berocca.

The event will start bang on 7pm with doors open at 6.45pm. Tickets are £3.
