TUESDAY 11th APRIL
TICKETS: ENTRY W/ ALBUM PURCHASE
We may have recommended them two weeks ago, but here on TMB we just can’t get enough of them. Blaenavon head back to Manchester on Tuesday for a special acoustic in-store show at FOPP – and with That’s Your Lot only a few days old, you’d be stupid to miss it.
DEAF INSTITUTE: 19:00–23:00
If you fancy a night full of gig action, then head on over to Deaf Institue after Blaenavon; American queercore duo PWR BTTM make their scorching Manchester return ahead of Pageant’s May release.
WEDNESDAY 12th APRIL
PIP BLOM & GODA TUNGL
CASTLE HOTEL: 19:00–22:15
Amsterdam’s newfound garage queen Pip Blom may only be 20 years old, but that hasn’t stopped her from making waves on the scene with her lo-fi sound. Don’t miss the excellent-as-always Goda Tungl as support for those math-pop vibes.
THURSDAY 13th APRIL
FALLOW CAFE: 19:00–2:00
TICKETS: £3 OTD
Feeling emo? Then get yourself down to Fallow Cafe on Thurday, where local lads Possum will ensure you’re looked after with a scrappy set full of bangers from their fantastic Wake Up Kid EP.
FRIDAY 14th APRIL
THE OLD PINT POT: 20:00–23:00
Dundee quartet Vladimir are helping to boost awareness of Scotland’s indie music scene with a gig at Salford’s Old Pint Pot on Friday. With songs jammed full of melancholy vocals and that dreamy DIIV-style guitar, this one’s not to be missed. Keep your fingers crossed that they play their cover of Nuxx’s ‘Born Slippy’.
THE EXPLODING FRUIT TONES IN-EDIBLE!
THE WHITE HOTEL: 21:00–8:00
TICKETS: £5 OTD
If you’re looking for a party this Saturday, then Fuzzkill Records have delivered exactly what you need – an all-nighter of some of the best local bands to celebrate the release of Fruit Tones‘ new record, Ripe and Ready. Denim & Leather, Drahla, Sion Llwyd, Inland Taipan and Unpaid Intern make up the mouthwatering bill.
SUNDAY 16th APRIL
HAUSFRAU & CURRENT AFFAIRS
FALLOW CAFE: 20:00–22:00
TICKETS: £5 OTD
Hausfrau and Current Affairs bring a slice of Glasgow to Fallow Cafe on Sunday; the former a beautifully dark synth project from Claudia Nova, the latter a post-punk/death-rock mashup featuring members of Shopping, Anxiety and Kaspar Hauser.
