MAY have some nice gigs coming up…


Get it? MAY!

We’re about to get into GIG SEASON. We’ve got three gigs in May, three gigs in June and then NO GIGS IN JULY (hooray!), but yeah then 3 a month until the end of time. If you could come to all of them, that’d make promoting a lot easier and everyone would be having a great time.

This month there are three stupidly mixed gigs going on and the line-ups are ace. First up is the return of Radiator Hospital at Soup Kitchen with killer support from Dogeyed and Milk Crimes. Tickets will be available on the door!

Then we’ve got The Beths all the way over from New Zealand and if you’re into Martha/Lemuria vibes – you are – then you’ll absolutely love them. This line-up has Dish Pit from Canada and Flood Manual from down the road too and it’s at 57 Thomas Street. The venue is tiny and great so please arrive early!

Then to wrap up May’s gig extravaganza we’re welcoming The Rememberables (so hard to say out loud) to Manchester for the first time. These folks are from Washington, D.C. and feature members of Coke Bust & Walk The Plank. It’s heavy, fuzzy, dreamy and all the other buzzwords that you need to buy a ticket and turn up. Support from post-hardcore heroes Group of Man, Leeds fuzz due Long Body and local grungers Smother. Should be a belter in the intimate setting of The Castle.


Tickets for all available here. Then it’s June…

Our last ever gig…of 2017

Another December has come around, another year finished off and we’ve got one final gig to see the year out.

The year started with a sold out show for Radiator Hospital and Martha in January, then a busy February period followed by getting my knee broken playing football that interrupted things somewhat. In April we were had Manchester Punk Festival, and then a flurry of incredible line-ups in the following months.

Three shows in 5 days in November has brought up to MN#110 and we’ve got a great mix of old and new on the line-up at a great venue.

Apologies, I Have None are taking out Kamikaze Girls on a run around the UK to finish off the year, two of the best bands in the country. One that have been going forever in various line-ups with a back catalogue of incredible songs, one that’s a little more recent that are a pleasure to watch!

Continuing the old and new theme, we’ve got The Sour Taste on a line-up for the first time. They emailed me and it said FFO: The Menzingers, The Flatliners so they had me sussed. They’re up from Salisbury, make sure you check them out. And with the old (no offence chaps) we’ve got the pop-punk stalwarts of Don Blake, if you’re into The Copyrights/The Ergs then you’ll have a great time with these lot.

Last thing to shout about is the venue! We’re happy to be returning to Partisan after a sold out show with ONSIND last weekend. Partisan is a new DIY space in Manchester that’s got so much potential to give this city what it needs, a decent size venue, not ran by idiots, not being sold an turned into luxury flats. Please come to the gig, please spend your money at the bar, also please google how to find the venue too…

So that’s it. Another year down, we’ve done over 100 gigs now, thanks if you’ve come to any of them! See you on Wednesday 13th December at Partisan.
