There’s a chance to experience one of the best emerging bands in the North West and wallow in nostalgia for those who went before at the latest Wired In event at The Dukes in Lancaster.

Last month’s event was packed to the rafters thanks to the combination of live music by Morecambe’s Liar Liar and a talk by former Cleveleys-based photographer Ian Tilton.

And the collective are hoping the joint forces of The Heartbreaks and Joy Division will have the same effect tonight at the latest free event.

Wired In organiser, Richard Davis says: “I’m a massive Joy Division fan and The Heartbreaks are on the verge of the big time. They came to the last Wired In and loved it so much they wanted to perform here too.”

The event begins at 7pm and the main feature of the evening is a 30-minute film shot by Richard which records The Heartbreaks in locations across Lancaster and Morecambe as they geared up for a UK tour and the release of their new single.

The Heartbreaks will perform an acoustic set while the film is projected on to a screen behind them. The band will be interviewed and the audience can also fire in questions.

The Joy Division element comes in the form of some rarely-seen photographs of the Manchester band taken by Martin O’Neill at Bowdon Vale Youth Club in 1979.

There will be a live musical soundtrack to accompany the images as they are projected onto a screen.

Also on the bill is Wired In favourite, Steve Lewis who appears alongside Matt Robinson and Paul Sherwood as the Deep Cabaret Trio providing a soundtrack to Richard’s film, Shore at Silverdale. Eleanor Denvir and Rachel Parsons will add to the soundtrack.

Nancy Kent will sing to a projected backdrop of views around the Trough of Bowland and there will also be a short film by photographer, Graham Wynne.
