And on to 2016…


2015 was a great and busy year, we had a hand in 17 shows at 11 different venues. Ranging from tiny places like The Castle and The Eagle Inn where we had great, and packed, shows for Sam Russo and Apologies, I Have None – to the huge room at Gorilla and a sold out show in the top floor of Sound Control for Modern Baseball and Into It. Over It.

Our last show of the year, was a bit like last year, with Gnarwolves in the basement at Sound Control and I finally got to see Spraynard again after missing out on their show with Modern Baseball the last time round!

2016 is set to start where 2015 left off with the incredible Beach Slang coming back to Manchester and playing The Star & Garter on Thursday 21st January. Petal have just been announced as support, and if you haven’t heard the Philadelphia indie-punks before, where have you been!

February brings us to a sold out show at Gorilla for Modern Baseball which sold out in a stupid amount of time, supports from Sorority Noise and The Pooches cement this as a line-up not to miss! We’ll hopefully have a little gig at the end of February too!

Then it’s full steam ahead to Manchester Punk Festival 2016! This year we had over 650 people attending and with the line-up we’ve got up our sleeve we’re fully expecting a sellout. It would be great to see some new faces there and supporting what we’re trying to achieve which is a DIY punk festival with bands from all over, cheap tickets, multi-venue in the best city on earth.


BEACH SLANG / PETAL @ The Star & Garter – Thu 21 Jan
MANCHESTER PUNK FESTIVAL @ Sound Control + more – 22/33 April
