Four-day weekend! Everyone’s favourite bank holiday weekend is back, and we’ve been casting our eyes over Manchester’s musical calendar to pick out five shows you’ll want to keep in mind over the Easter period…
Friday 19th April // Ryan Jarvis @ Night People
// Together with his band, in his short career Ryan Jarvis has garnered the attention of many radio stations, one of which being Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1. Supporting new record ‘Think About It’, the band play their biggest headline to date with an evening at Night People this Friday, with support from Carnival Club and Broke Casino. Read our recent interview with Ryan here.
Saturday 20th April // Narrow Margin @ The Deaf Institute
// Hyde five-piece Narrow Margin have quickly built up a strong following in the city, now selling out Deaf Institute just one year after playing opening support there. For support this time around, enjoy sets from local favourites LYNCHS and New Luna.
Wednesday 24th April // Rufus Wainwright @ Bridgewater Hall
// Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and composer Rufus Wainwright celebrates the 20th anniversary of his eponymous debut album. Rufus visits Manchester with his band to perform material from his debut along with 2001’s ‘Poses’. Last few tickets for this one remain, so act quick!
Thursday 25th April // Dropkick Murphys @ Academy 1
// Following a successful 2018 touring Europe and dot-to-dotting across the festival circuit, Celtic-rockers the Dropkick Murphys return to the UK for a string of spring shows. The Boston punks’ last record came in the shape of 2017’s ’11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory’.
Friday 26th April // Callow Youth @ Retro
