Block your calendars and mark the date: a new In-Edit Showcase is taking place. This time with a more electronic theme going on during Amsterdam Dance Event.
On Wednesday the 18th of Octobre we open the doors of Noorderlicht for you with a mixture of film, music and discussion. Our main crowd pleaser of the night is about the great Gary Numan Official. The film ‘Gary Numan: Android in La La Land’ by Steve Read and Rob Alexander will be shown surrounded in a program of new wave DJ’s. After the film you get a chance to ask your most probing questions, because Rob Alexander will be giving a Q&A.
The night will be closed in style by ELIXER, female DJ duo you might know from GRAUZONE, that will kick asses with their best selection of new beat, EBM, and minimal wave to honor Numan’s legacy.
At the end of the 1970s, Gary Numan found himself to be one of the world’s biggest-selling recording artists, “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” and “Cars” were huge hits and no one had heard, or seen, anyone like Gary Numan. The Asperger’s syndrome that helped forge Numan’s tunnel-like ambition, informing his music and image, also brought along problems. At a time when the public knew little about the condition, the press labeled him as a freak. Depression, anxiety, near bankruptcy and a long period in the wilderness followed. Then Numan fell in love with his biggest fan, Gemma, who helped him rediscover his passion for music.
Gary Numan, the godfather of electronic music is on a one-way trip to crack America, returning to the studio for the first time in nearly a decade. Android in La La Land is a true celebration of a music-making pioneer and the love story that helped him turn his life around.
