The first issue of The Wire was published in summer 1982. To mark its 40th anniversary, throughout July the magazine is hosting a series of live events in London, Bristol, Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow, Chicago, and online.
Two events in London on 8 & 9 July will showcase some of the artists who have recently appeared on The Wire's Below The Radar compilations – the magazine's ongoing series of underground music compilations that bring together new experimental music made by independent musicians, and are made available to all The Wire’s subscribers as downloads.
On 8 July The Wire's Meg Woof will welcome three London based acts to perform at DIY venue Spanners in Loughborough Junction: bedroom punk artist No Home; Peter Blundell and Dominic Goodman of UK trio Mosquitoes performing as Komare; and multi-disciplinary artist Hannah Catherine Jones.
London Spanners, 8 July, 8pm–12am, £10. [The second Wire 40 × Below The Radar event will take place 9 July at London Spanners featuring performances from Malvern Brume, Nexcyia and Venus Ex Machina. Tickets and further details.]
