We’re hitting the business end of winter, and the city’s musical calendar is hotting up with a plethora of talent!
We’re looking ahead to a visit from Sleaford Mods at the Academy, as well as Vök down in the YES basement and one of Lebanon’s biggest musical exports, Mashrou’ Leila, will also soon be visiting Manchester. This month, DHP bring The Dead South, Neneh Cherry, Island, Cub Sport, Melissa Etheridge and Mothers to Manchester, amongst a host of other. Hey! Manchester will be just as busy, welcoming Skinny Lister, Laura Gibson, Beans On Toast and many more. There’s plenty to check out at Night & Day, who are highlighting their interstellar club night Cosmique Disco, every last Friday of the month.
Away from music, over at the Fairfield Social Club you can look forward to the return of plant powered food fair GRUB, every Sunday.
