Withington's Independent Record Shop is teaming up with Withington's longest running independent venue for a night of psychy, shoegazey, stoner rocky quality noises presenting some of our favourite local bands.
Manchester reverb sloths.
Newly formed last year this band are a firm favourite of ours, recently reccording their first tunes and only a handful of gigs under their belts we will be happy to hear you say you saw them here first!
Athenian nomads living in Manchester. Member of the Thinkbabymusic family.
Their Debut album 'RADAMENES' thrivingly incorporates both fragile and eerie ballads with catchy anthems, powerful enough to seed itself into the subconscious. An amalgama of desert psych sounds cradled in its own unique, laden atmosphere
Highly talented acoustic finger-picker. Lists influences as varied as Led Zep and Hendrix to Wu-Tang and ODB. Has been described as a 'grungier Jon Gomm… without the mistakes!'
Definitely a treat worth turning up early for!!!
The Waitress is the work of Manchester singer songwriter Ben Turner.
The sound has an echo of Dylan, some reminiscence of Buckley, and other varied ingredients from influences that span decades, making it hard to pin down to any particular genre.
Raw songs with an intricate backbone, they rattle along the lines of indie, country, blues rock, and a little swing but never derailing from solid tracks.
