Never miss another 'MGMT' show
This event takes place at O2 Apollo Manchester, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
New York duo Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, who, after finding a shared love of obscure, twee music, started MGMT and began making their deliciously sparkly retro pop, heavily influenced by the likes of Bowie, Spaceman 3 and The Incredible String Band. Their eponymously titled 3rd album in 2013 sees them reaching further out there.

Guards are Richie Follin, the guitarist in indie-pop band Cults, on vocals, Cults drummer Loren Humphrey, and friend Kaylie Church on keyboards and dual vocals. Their debut album 'In Guards We Trust' is a whirlwind of Phil Spector atmospherics, stomping drums, hazy spiralling guitar lines, and harmony-drenched psychedelic pop vocals. The songs harness big hooks and choruses with enough fuzz-pedal to keep things suitably lo-fi, but with more melodies in each song than many bands manage over the course of an album.
