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


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

Upcoming punk gigs in Manchester…


Thanks to everyone who came out to the Modern Baseball and Simmer shows at the end of February, two great shows at both ends of the scale! Modern Baseball was the biggest Moving North show ever, and the Simmer show at Retro Bar two days later had a bunch of brilliantly promising young bands from the North West.

And on to 2016…


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

Firstly, thanks to everyone who came out to the Apologies, I Have None / Hindsights show on Saturday night, how good was that! The Eagle Inn is a cracking little venue and all the bands were ace. That was Moving North’s penultimate show of the year, meaning one thing – we’ve got one left!

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

Apologies, I Have None + Hindsights


Not long to go now until our penultimate gig of the year and the line-up , if I do say so myself, is bloody brilliant. We’ve got two of the best bands in the country on a co-headline tour in Manchester (well, Salford) on a Saturday night.

Apologies, I Have None are a firm favourite in this city, having played here a number of times on headline and support slots while Hindsights were last seen a couple of months ago playing at A Carefully Planned Festival. Both bands are loud, dark and play with so much energy and honesty it’s fantastic. Continue reading
