Weds 12th March @ The Star & Garter (Downstairs)
The Survival Tour - feat. Sam Russo, Dear Everyone, Roo Pescod, Jimmy Islip.
Anyone who came to watch The Survival Tour last year will know how incredible a night it was. A fine selection of the best UK acoustic acts around all mucking in together, helping out with harmonies, tambourines and heckles. Such a great night and it'll be great to have Sam Russo back in Manchester for the first time since the Tim Barry tour back in August 2013. More info...
Mon 17th March @ The Tiger Lounge
Calvinball / Arms Aloft / Pure Graft / Headroom
Arms Aloft are a hard-working punk rock band from Wisconsin who were last seen in Manchester at manchFESTer 1.5 back in 2011, this time they're back on St. Patricks Day at The Tiger Lounge. We see the return of our favourites in Calvinball and Pure Graft again which'll be bloody lovely. Then relative newcomers Headroom open the show and their 4-track EP released last year was incredible, if you haven't heard it yet, quit slacking. More info...
Thu 17th April @ The Star & Garter
The Smith St Band / Restorations / Astpai / Great Cynics / Brawlers
Now I'm not one to toot my own horn but this has got to be one of the best line-ups you'll see for a while. Last time SSB were in town, the show at Star & Garter sold out and was absolutely mind-blowing. Such a great atmosphere for every band and even the SSB mentioned how insane it was. Add to them mix our Austrian buds in Astpai, blow-your-freakin'-mind Philly five-piece Restorations and two of the UK's best bands and you've got a recipe for a Thursday night with a Bank Holiday Friday the next day.

Wed 7th May @ The Star & Garter
Iron Chic / Gnarwolves / Bear Trade / Stay Clean Jolene / Don Blake
YES! Two of my favourite bands of the last few years on the same show. Iron Chic are back touring their latest album 'The Constant One' which kept up the theme of the first record by being mint. We got Gnarwolves back to Manchester for the first time since 2012 when we had them play with That Fucking Tank at Kraak Gallery. Line-up completed by some of our favourite bands in the North. Tickets are selling pretty fast for this one so keep an eye out it. More info...
Sunday 11th May @ Wahlbar, Fallowfield
Hindsights / Milk Teeth
We haven't completely announced this show yet, but figured I'd put it in your diary for you. Hindsights and Milk Teeth, two bands making waves and making people take notice recently. More info on it's way.
Weds 14th May @ The Star & Garter
Real Friends / Modern Baseball / You Blew It! / Nai Harvest
This show sold out in three days. So if you don't have a ticket by now, chances are you're gonna miss it all (see what I did there?). I'm not sure I even need to write about how insane this gig is going to be, look at the line-up and it'll explain itself. More info...
Fri 25th July @ The Star & Garter
Citizen / Diamond Youth / Headroom / Boston Manor
Citizen released one of my favourite albums of last year with 'Youth' and can't wait to catch them for the first time in July. They're joined by Topshelf Records' Diamond Youth (Chicago) and Headroom (Manchester) for the entire tour and we've added Blackpool pop-punx Boston Manor to the bill because why the fuck wouldn't we? Tickets also shifting really quick so don't sleep on it. More info...
