Nice-N-Sleazy welcomes the shape-shifting world of Amanda Brown and co to the confines of its nefarious basement this month, presenting a ‘best of’ from the LA based eclectic collective. As LA Vampires, Brown has traversed the sounds of the callously tagged 'witch house' movement (with the staggering Zola Jesus), bewildering acid lo-fi with Psychic Reality and bleary fairytale dancehall with Daniel Martin-Mccormick, aka Ital, as well as founding the highly zeitgeisty labels Not Not Fun and 100% Silk.

With former collaborators and label mates in tow for tonight, the Sauciehall Street noise hole is a haven for those looking for the best in tripped out, reverb-heavy atmospherics and close-to-the-bone audio perversions channelled through a skewed filter of juke, dub, disco and house.

Further support comes from the riveting Maria Minerva, who sounds like a modernised version of Julee Cruise in those Twin Peaks Roadhouse scenes, or Julia Holter’s little sister. The lineup is concluded with Magic Touch, a San Francisco-based DJ with a seemingly endlessly inventive cut-and-paste approach, which he applies to the most unexpected of subjects. This will be a real treat for fans of the likes of Salem, Aids-3D and oOoOO, and such sounds are seldom heard round these parts.

Nice N Sleazy, Thur 7 June. 10pm - 3am, £10, £8 advance http://www.nicensleazy.com
