Sound From the Other City is a yearly music festival in Manchester, England, featuring international acts in venues across the city on May 5. The festivities also include an event called the Manchester SceneSkype, which features performances from across the globe that will be broadcast live to Islington Mill in Manchester, and local indie-pop group Lavoy will be dialing in from Koot's.

Other acts performing in front of webcams include D/R/U/G/S, Modern Blonde, Jarboe and Antic Clay, Pregnant and Oxbow, though the site says that performance is pre-recorded. 

But the Lavoy performance won't be, and it might be the earliest set Koot's has ever hosted. The band goes on Sunday, May 5, at 7 p.m. British Summer Time / 10 a.m. Alaska Daylight Time, no cover charge.
