More gigs than you can shake a stick at…..

In a veritable flurry of activity the Salford Music Scene will be seeing three consecutive weeks of high profile giggery and ancillary tomfoolery.

First up a new thing called “Salford Noise” which appears to be emerging from the University Campus to delight us with a range of bands. The line-up is impressive and it’s a good deal at £7 for all three nights, or £3 a gig.

  • Monday 23rd The Crescent: Doldrums, Boddickers, Seahawk, Missed You At The Show
  • Tuesday 24th The Black Lion: Scarlet Ocean, Bears?BEARS!, Falls, Marley’s Chains, Kerfuffle (Also there is an acoustic stage playing in-between acts)
  • Wednesday 25th Islington Mill: Treehouse, Freed By Mice, Chuggernaught, Shauna Mackin (She’s also releasing her EP), The Feud
I will be featuring some of these bands on my shows week beginning 16th.
The following Thursday sees our next Music Night at the Kings Arms to raise much needed resources for Salford City Radio…..the details are…

This gig also happens to be the launch of the new EP from Trojan Horse so it should be a belter.

The following three days are consumed by the Temptations of Toska Wilde which has  now been extended from a one night stand to Three glorious nights of Temptation and Forbidden Fruits!
