Apologies for neglecting your needs regarding this, but hey, I’m sure you survived in some shape or form. It would’ve been a rubbishly empty mailout had I sent one, anyway! And so we come to another extended week of jiggery pokery in Manchester Village – officially the nations 2nd hottest hotbed of musical activity according to someone or other. Great! This is only gonna be a mini mailout because Saturday is wicked – gigs EVERYWHERE.

W e d n e s d a y – M a r 1 2
@ Roadhouse … ISIS … it’s Tool for the kids who like Converge, math-punk if you will
@ The Uni … DIRTY VEGAS … Brit dance merchants who furrow major trails in America. It’s sold out but if you can smuggle yerself in…
T h u r s d a y - M a r 1 3
@ The Uni … ANTHRAX … apparently this band play METAL!!! Save me a space down t’front @ The Uni … JEEVAS … remember Kula Shaker? It’s his new band. Think Kula Shaker minus the studentesque wannabe ethnic ramblings @ Courtneys … MIOR PLANET @ Eclectricity … bar 'til 1, Minor Planet playing their tunes - straight down after Anthrax methinks
F r i d a y - M a r 1 4
@ Apollo … TENACIOUS D … from the A, to the B, to the C, to the D. They’re back in town and Jack & Kyle are gonna be rockin’ that stage something special, I tell thee. Probably without El Grohlio in Devil garb
@ The Uni … JESSE MALIN … Ryan Adams’ mate here used to be in NYC HxC bands. If you don’t know what that means, you probably won’t enjoy it enough.
S a t u r d a y – M a r 1 5
**Gig of the Week** @ Manchester University
… BLOOD BROTHERS … that man Robinson’s latest protégés are here jamming their super high quality punky metal down our unnecessarily weary throats. To be enjoyed without a hesitation – OR ELSE!!
… WINNEBAGO DEAL … This is rock. This is what retro stylings should aim for. We’ve had too much of the crap Nordic wannabe Americanos. It’s grunge but not Nirvana. Get yo head round dat, biatch. Betcha can’t.
@ The Uni …DAVID HOLMES … his unprecedentedly cool dance coolness in a stageable format. How cool is that?!?
@ Apollo … TRACY CHAPMAN … she’s getting on a bit but hey, you can’t beat the classics like
@ MEN Arena … POPSTARS RIVALS … **cancelled** Shame.
Yes. Everyone cart yourselves off to see Blood Brothers and Winnebago Deal. Seriously. You will thank me so much. I don’t care if it ain’t yo thang. They’re wicked and don’t even think about arguing with me.
See you soon
