Open mic at Trof in the Northern Quarter, Manchester, every Sunday

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

Update May 2009:

There’s an open mic night happening every Sunday at Trof in the Northern Quarter, and, together with Ollie Smith, I run it each week. It’s a really nice, chilled-but-busy open mic. We often get some well-known musicians coming down to try out stuff. Musicians who have dropped in include Karima Francis, Eskimo Cowboy, Nomad Jones, Paris Riots, Kirsty McGee & Mat Martin and even Guy Garvey (though the latter just came to check it out rater, than to play, sadly.)

We’ve got a Facebook Group for the open mic now too: Trof Northern Quarter Open Mic Facebook.

It starts 8.30pm each night (get there at 8pm to get a slot!). People play two or three songs each.

As with every open mic, check with the venue before travelling. It’s every Sunday except bank holidays, as a general rule…
