May. Done and dusted!

May kicked off for us with a ridiculous line-up at Retro Bar showcasing some of the best bands in the country at the moment, conveniently located under the Specialist Subject Records banner. Then we moved into the second week of May and had the honour of hosting the first ever Manchester show for The Bennies.

Both shows were brilliantly attended and went off without a hitch. Thanks to everyone who came to either, you make promoting shows in this city so enjoyable!

That’s May out of the way – then two gigs a month for June and July! Continue reading

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! Continue reading

And what a line-up it is, Gnarwolves / Spraynard and Such Gold all on the same bill playing at Sound Control on Thursday 10th December. Continue reading

MOVING NORTH BEE-SHIRTS!

I thought it was about time to get some new Moving North shirts done up, after the “I know what happened, I was there” ones that seemed to go down a treat last time.

I reached out to Drew Millward, who I’d seen design some great stuff for the likes of ONSIND and Out Of Spite Fest, and he hit me back with a bloody great front/back design. Continue reading
