We’re all happy with this warmer weather and brighter days, so with that in mind, we’ve been looking ahead to visits from a whole bunch of local budding talent, along with international artists in full bloom. Read on for our picks from the next seven days on Manchester’s stages.
Monday 25th: Mealtime + Wyvern Lingo @ YES
// Self-described as “abrasive, alt-synth pop with pastiche references to Y2K chart toppers”, local indie outfit Mealtime team up with Wyvern Lingo for a co-headline night at YES.
// Band On The Wall host their latest night of FREE experimental music, this time hosting the boundary-pushing Emil Karlsen & Mark Hanslip Duo, Emanuel J Burton, John Haycock and Yaatri. Icelandic folk artist Junius Meyvant comes to Deaf Institute.
// Rising star Billie Eilish visits the city supporting the upcoming release of hotly-anticipated debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’. Over at Gorilla, Scottich indie rockers Twilight Sad drop in on their latest tour.
// Oklahoma indie outfit visit Manchester supporting fourth album ‘Bad Behaviour’, released last year. Elsewhere, Vulfpeck guitarist Cory Wong brings his second solo album ‘The Optimist’ to Gorilla and dance stalwart Fatboy Slim will be packing out the Arena.
// Northern duo Seafret (Jack Sedman and Harry Draper) visit Gorilla with a follow up to debut album ‘Tell Me It’s Real’ on the horizon. Having already sold out London’s Omeara, Highasakite announce their biggest shows across Europe, including a stop off at Band on the Wall and a staggering seven-date arena tour in their home country Norway, including the iconic Spektrum arena in Oslo.
// Local quartet Larkins have quickly risen to the cream of the indie pop crop, playing their biggest show in Manchester yet at the Albert Hall. Aussie electronica outfit Crooked Colours drop into Deaf and Night & Day host another indie disco in the shape of Anti-Matter, celebrating Doom as well as spinning plenty of left field hip hop, neo soul and electronica.
Sunday 3rd: Daniel Land @ The Castle Hotel
// We end the week in the company of dream-pop musician Daniel Land, visiting The Castle Hotel with latest release ‘A Certain Kind Of Light’ up his sleeve.
