Health are part of the Los Angeles music movement that spawned No Age, Mika Miko and the Mae Shi. Health make two-minute masterpieces ripe for the dancefloor. Toss in a split 7" with Crystal Castles and Health's Manchester debut is primed for success. Also sharing the bill is Jona Bechtolt - a musician and multimedia artist whose solo project, Yacht, provides an outlet for fun electro-pop, site-specific visuals and his trademark spine-breaking dancing.
