MN#01 – MN#99

Yesterday marked 7 years since the first ever Moving North gig. It was at Kro Bar in Manchester, which I think still exists, and featured 5 bands that definitely don’t exist anymore.

We’re quickly approaching MN#100 and putting on four gigs in May is speeding things up, so I thought it was time for a quick update on all gigs in the pipeline!

MN#96 (Mon 8 May)
The inspirational Slingshot Dakota are touring the UK in May for the first time in years, bringing along Philadelphia-based Petal who was last seen supporting Beach Slang. Indie dance-punks Crumbs are coming over from Leeds to party and Smother from down the road will be opening things up.

Oh, then we added the legendary Caves because WHY NOT? Get yer tickets: http://bit.ly/2lnlAhw

MN#97 (Fri 12 May)
Brighton’s finest three-piece Gnarwolves are back with a new album ‘Outsiders’ and a tour to support that. They’ll be playing Sound Control and supports will be announced real soon. Get yer tickets: http://bit.ly/2lRoEFW

MN#98 (Wed 17 May)
We’re teaming up with Anarchistic Undertones again, after some brilliant co-pro gigs last year, to bring Canada’s incredible power-chord driven duo Mobina Galore to Manchester. They were last seen in the country as main support to Against Me! and if you’ve not heard them yet, PLEASE listen because they’re incredible. Support comes from Leeds/London based Jesus & His Judgemental Father, Holiday and Hoof. Get yer tickets: http://bit.ly/2lnvkbo

MN#99 (Fri 19 May)
Welcoming back DIY punk rock legend Jeff Rosenstock with his band, right off the back of their incredible new album ‘Worry’. Last time they played in a packed out Gullivers and it was fantastic. They’re bringing along Doe for the whole tour! Get yer tickets: http://bit.ly/2ms49ke

MN#100 is under wraps but soon to be leaked out, it’s on Saturday 10th June at Gullivers and will be most fun.

Other dates for your diaries include:
Sat 1 July – The Smith Street Band, The Bennies, Shit Present @ Sound Control
Sat 8 July – THE BEST CO-HEADLINE EVER @ Rebellion

THAT WAS FUN.

Thanks to everyone who came out to Fuel Cafe on Friday night for the Throwing Stuff show, it was a lot of fun. We’ve not done a free/donations show in a long, long while and this was brilliant. Thanks to everyone who donated so we could give the bands some petrol money too! Continue reading

FREE SHOW ON A FRIDAY!

Firstly, thanks to everyone that started 2017 off brilliantly and came out to Night & Day Cafe on 3rd January to watch Martha, Radiator Hospital, ONSIND, Natterers and Grotbags, what a way to kick off the year.

That was a co-promo with Bad Uncle and we’re teaming up again at the end of January to put on a FREE entry gig on a FRIDAY night. What more could you want? Continue reading

Happy 15th Birthday to Astpai!

astpai

There’s not many bands around at the moment that have been on the grind for as long as Austria’s finest export – Astpai.
Every time I have the pleasure of catching them live whether it be on festival line-ups blowing peoples minds, or supporting on bigger tours and stealing the spotlight, it’s such a pleasure. They play with an honest intensity, and deliver everything with a sincerity that’s not found often. Continue reading

Calvinball’s final hurrah…(again)

CBALLERSS

The first time we had the opportunity to put Calvinball on was for the first ever Manchfester at The Oxford in 2010, they were on tour with Leagues Apart and Cynics (before they became Great) and have had them on numerous line-ups and most of the Manchfester’s over the last 6 years.
In the last two years Calvinball gigs have been hard to come by, notably due to Joe (guitar) moving to Australia and further helped by Conor (drums) moving to Canada. Matt’s in Blackpool and Dave’s in Manchester so might as well be in two different continents still. Continue reading

June…done and dusted!

Moving North shows for June are all done and dusted, in the space of one weekend! Thanks to everyone who came out for the Blackhole and Brawlers show on Friday night, was nice to see Hopes back in the swing of things too. It was also the first time we’ve had the pleasure of using Fallow Cafe as a venue and it was bloody great.

WACO and Sam Russo added to Manchfester 4.

Because 11 bands simply isn’t enough for Manchfester 4 – we decided to go and grab another two. In keeping with the old & new mix we’ve gone for someone who’s played many a Moving North show and a band that we’ve not yet had the pleasure of hosting. Continue reading

M4NCHFESTER – Saturday 27th August

13321900_10153574681421680_167705709458970336_n

It’s that time of year, Manchfester is coming around with a line-up of old and new and a bit of inbetween to fill your ears with some brilliant music for a whole day.

It’s the first and quite likely last one that will ever be at The Star & Garter too before that’s closed down so extra emotional on that front. Bands, you ask? Continue reading
