6pm - 10pm 
includes Afterparty at 3 Wise Monkeys

Seattle/LA based reissue record label Light In The Attic will host their first ever official event outside of North America in Todmorden on Sunday 24th August from 6pm.

Michael Chapman
The Unitarian Church in the town centre (2 minute walk from Todmorden Station) will play host to an evening with the maverick that is MICHAEL CHAPMAN

Live Chapman constantly surprises, combing his song based material with strung out-melodic-hypnotic instrumentals that totally mesmerise. Light In The Attic have been reissuing some of his Harvest output from the 1960/70s over the past year or so.

Also on the bill is JULIE BYRNE who is over for her first trip to the UK. A true DIY punk in spirit she spends the majority of her life on the road in the States, her recent debut album Rooms With Walls and Windows is a stunning slice of front porch psych folk and live she's even more enchanting.

Check her out here:

Light In The Attic head honcho Matt Sullivan will be in town to spin a few choice cuts at the church. Doors will be at 6pm and the live music will be over by 10pm so in plenty of time for last trains to Manchester and Leeds.

The afterparty (it's a bank holiday afterall) will be down the road at the 3 Wise Monkeys with a collection of local DJ bods from White Rabbit, aA and Duende playing suitably out there cuts.
