Zidane, the Movie with Mogwai Playing Soundtrack Live, Manchester International Festival, July 19-20

The Manchester International Festival (July 4-21, 2013) offerings range from Martha Argerich to Urban Farming.

I wish I could witness Mogwai playing soundtrack live while Zidane, A 21st Century Portrait (a film directed by Douglas Gordon and Philippe Parreno) rolls off the screen.


There are 2 performances on Friday, July 19 (currently sold out) and July 20 at 8 pm at Albert Hall.
