Tickets £5 Advance WeGotTickets // Skiddle //SEE Tickets Facebook Event https://www.facebook.com/events/167588926774944 Humanfly are going on hiatus. They’ve spent 12 years making terrifying, hypnotic, groove-filled, repulsive and constantly loud music and their particular flavour of sweaty prog-grind-whateverthefuck-metal will be sorely missed. This year they released their fourth album “Awesome Science” – the last ever album on the really very good BREW records – and everybody agreed that it’s damn special. Going from intricate, staccato post-rock to punishing metal then to ridiculously fun psychedelia and back again, it’s probably the best heavy album of the year. Basically, one of the UK’s best metal bands is going away and this will be your last chance to see them in Manchester. It’s going to be a delicious/gross...

THE LOST RIVERS, CYRIL SNEAR, BORLAND...

Sunday evening fun from Grey Lantern courtesy of three veritably righteous acts… THE LOST RIVERS https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Lost-Rivers/286204745961 Thrillingly caustic shoegaze from the depths of Germany.”Breathtaking, devastating, and utterly mindblowing from beginning to end, The Lost Rivers have created one of the most exciting debuts in recent years.” – Drowned In Sound CYRIL SNEAR https://www.facebook.com/cyrilsnear One of Manchester’s most criminally overlooked bands will be playing a new set of songs from forthcoming second LP ‘The Riot Of Colour’, out early 2013. “A blurred vision of what you might have if The Mars Volta, Mogwai and Radiohead were genetically modified into one Mancunian monster.” – Silent Radio BORLAND http://borland.bandcamp.com/ Organically shape shifting electronic drones. “Through simple melody , complex changing rhythms and an exciting, emotive sonic experience Borland … evoke both modern and classic electronica.” – Manchester Scenewipe TICKETS £4 ADV: http://bit.ly/RwOdEA PLEASE NOTE 7PM...

Trojan Horse Album Launch...

As the poster suggests, we’re putting on the album launch show for Trojan Horse. Their album got like 8/10 from DiS et al, and three thumbs up from us here. If that weren’t enough, the venue is the achingly cool KRAAK gallery, and support comes from the frankly incredible Cyril Snear, Metamusic, and one of my favourite Manchester bands of the last couple of years, From the Kites of San Quentin. I mean seriously, this is going to be one HELL of a gig. The first person through the door will get like a free tee or something, and we’ll give posters and goodies to the first ten or so. So what would you expect to pay for such a show? Give up? That’ll be £3 in advance or £4 on the door, cheers. How good is this going to be?! –http://superstardestroyer.wordpress.com/ The Facebook event is here. Tickets are available from here. Listen...
