Festival on Wednesday in Spinningfields

Festival on Wednesday in Spinningfields

Danny Keehan, who is behind the Carry On series of music nights in Manchester, is running a new, outdoor, acoustic night every Wednesday in Spinningfields.

It’s part of the Spinningfields Summer Festival, and it takes place in the Kro Bar there. He’s had some great acs, including the Bee’s Niece and Pablo’s Finest Hour (who both played at the launch night), and then a set by I am Three last week.

It’s well worth checking the night out. The next is on Wednesday, 5th August, from 5pm till pm. It features The Thingumajigs and the Hatstand Medicine Band. And it’s completely free.

Pulse Cafe, Todmorden

Todmorden Pulse Cafe
The Pulse Cafe in Todmorden is a great little cafe, with good vegetarian / vegan food, good coffee, and even an alcohol license. It’s open till 11pm most evenings, and has live acoustic acts on many nights. It also has a Sunday afternoon acoustic slot, which I really enjoyed playing.

It’s easy to get to from Manchester — there’s a direct train, or you can go by bus for slightly cheaper.

There are some good acts coming up there, including Josephine Oniyama on 23rd August 2009. It looks like all the gigs there are free.

The food and drink is good value, and the staff are really friendly. Definitely recommended if you’re in the Todmorden area.
