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#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
