Weekend of music

Hello! It’s been a good weekend. Friday I went out in the Northern Quarter of Manchester with my house mate Pete. On Saturday I just played some quiet music in the living rooms of friends and then headed off to a few parties in Withington.

On Sunday I went to Night and Day, to see the Breaks. A great gig – and very good support from *The Seal Cub Clubbing Club* (what a name!) and *Chris T-T* — whose blend of protest songs is truely great. A bit like Billy Brag but more up-to-date and in tune…. 😉

The Breaks themselves were full of infectious 10-second songs. In fact, the longest tune of the set was probably not more than 3 minutes. First time I’d seen them live and it was good 🙂

I’m beginning to recognise the regulars in Night and Day, actually – it’s quite a small group who go to these gigs. Night and Day is a fantastic venue for new music as well as big bands. And there’s a lot of good music coming up in the next few weeks.

After the gig we headed further into the Northern Quarter and had a few drinks until closing time, before heading back to Withington on the bus…

Be Sociable, Share!
