PREVIEW: Mold & POSA @ Fuel
What’s better than one DIY promoter? We’re about to tell you. This August sees the union of TWO like-minded event organisers Dentcha and Do Your Best presenting a UK tour to remember, with each date promising a concoction of aesthetically-moulded events in a gig-swap manner. Captioned “music to lose your wallet to”, the five-date tour will see the experimental Manchester-based outfit Mold and London-based POSA at the helm, with gigs and local supports across dates in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Brighton before finishing at Liverpool’s notorious The Jacaranda Club.

Speaking of their promotional network, Dentcha founder Shane Dickinson has mentioned that they’re setting their sights high: “We want to open up a network of promoters that actually have a passion for it – rather than just money-grabbers.” With talks with Do Your Best now in fruition, there are further plans to spread their DIY ethos & movement across Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool (and pretty much anywhere else that will take them from there). We have every faith that – hopefully – their movement will catch on, and gone will be the days of “they don’t have the right image for this lineup/venue/festival” *delete as appropriate*.

For the Manchester leg of the tour Mold and POSA take to Withington’s Fuel Cafe Bar with comrades The Starlight Magic Hour, with more acts yet to be announced ahead of the date. One thing that has been important for both promoters is securing the right booking on their unique lineups – each act captures an air of something new about them; something unheard of, something unearthly.
Having been in attendance at one of Dentcha’s previous events, there’s a clear artistic influence as music seems to be just one component to the running of the night. Dentcha’s synonymous Chattering teeth and Bogzart‘s one-eyed creatures have been strewn across their (so far) three events. Take the modestly sized – yet feverishly keen – Fuel, and picture Mold’s slurring vocals with faces plastered in garish makeup. Then add POSA’s erratic, dysfunctional/functional punk-performance and top off with the unapologetically chaotic-lure of The Starlight Magic Hour, and you have the Saturday 4th August’s Northern installment of the Dentcha x Do Your Best collaboration. It’s going to be pretty nuts, and we’re quite sure you won’t have been to anything quite like it.
