ShapeshifterThe Melbourne-based New Zealand drum and bass act Shapeshifter bring their unique live show and pioneering blend of electronic textures and breaking beats to The Forum to promote their latest album, Delta. The quintet is made of trained musicians and built a reputation as pioneers of modern music after they eschewed 100% mechanical sound in favour of a more traditional approach, which includes live percussion, saxophone and guitar.

About The Forum

Once a gorgeous art deco cinema, The Forum is now an essential mid-sized rock venue. It's got everything you want from the North London rock scene, with superb bands week-in week-out, and a fully-lubricated, enthusiastic and music-loving crowd. Well-designed and well-organised it manages to avoid the bar queues that are a feature of so much London gigging, while the main stage has great sound and a design that brings bands far closer to their audiences than you have any reason to expect in a venue this size.
