Calvinball’s final hurrah…(again)


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

Oi, listen up, I’m talking to EU.


There’s no .jpg that I can share, no link to an independent study, no hastily made meme with a statement that could be true or false. Every time I vote in an election, it matters a lot but I know that chance will come around again.

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.

WACO and Sam Russo added to Manchfester 4.

M4NCHFESTER – Saturday 27th August


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

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
