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.
Sam Russo returns to Manchester after a sell-out record release show at The Castle (remember how warm that was?!) to play The Star & Garter alongside all the belters we’ve already announced. Sam’s been a firm Manchester favourite and I have it on good knowledge that Manchester is a favourite for him too.
WACO are a band that have been in Manchester a couple of time recently on various support slots and they’ve got a new EP lined up to come out this month through Venn Records. I’d say they’re like a middle ground between Great Cynics and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes – but I am terrible at describing bands. Listen for yourself…
That’s them two, joining the other 11 like ONSIND, Calvinball, Pudge, Personal Best, Doctrines, Kamikaze Girls, Throwing Stuff, Break-Ups, Honey Joy, Molar and Aerial Salad.
