Seven Miles Out festival in Stockport today

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

The Seven Miles Out festival is a great, free festival in the centre of Stockport, from the organisers of The Teenage Market. It’s taking place today (Sunday, 29th July 2012) from 11am until 4pm. I’m playing at the Baker’s Vaults at 12.40pm today – and on one of the stages inside the market at 2.50pm (Just before Manchester musician Gideon Conn). It’s going to be a great day. The sun’s even come out!

Tim & Sam Band + Josephine Oniyama at Oddest tonight

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

Recommended gig tonight… “With a Little Help” at Oddest bar from 7.30pm. Features Josephine Oniyama, Admiral Fallow, and Tim and Sam Band. A really unmissable line-up.

It’s a free gig — and is in aid of the Nordof-Robins music therapy charity. There will be donation boxes, and they’re aiming to raise £1,000 after the series of gigs.

It should be an excellent night… With A Little Help is every 2nd Sunday of the month at Oddest Bar, Chorlton.

Recommended gig tonight: Jeremy Warmsley at Moho Live

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

Hi everyone

Recommended gig for tonight is at Manchester’s Moho Live (owned by Danny McNamara from 90s band Embrace). There are some fantastic acts playing, and I’ll be doing the sound engineering so come and say hello if you’re planning on coming. It’s £5 in I think. Here’s some more info on the lineup – courtesy of Manchester folk outfit Mushaboom, who are putting on the show:

******
Jeremy Warmsley is part of the London ‘new folk’ set that includes Laura Marling, Lightspeed Champion, Adem and Johnny Flynn. He’s released two albums: ‘The Art Of Fiction’ which included the magnficent anthems ‘Dirty Blue Jeans’ and ‘I Believe In The Way You Move’…
The follow up, ‘How We Became’ was released late last year to critical acclaim, festival appearances..and a support slot with the great Daniel Johnston. The hit single ‘Lose My Cool’ and a duet with Emmy The Great on ‘Boat Song’ suggest Jeremy is destined for great things.

Meursault are a Edinburgh 4 piece, and perhaps the best band I’ve heard in a long long time. Having been compared to the likes of Frightened Rabbit, Arcade Fire (with added electronica a la Postal Service) I’m going to say you may just witness the gig of the year on sunday. High Praise indeed! They’ve toured with The Twilight Sad and Broken Records. Miss them miss out!

Sparky Deathcap is manchesters very own cult hero. Having toured with the likes of Panda Bear & Los Campesinos! he released his limited edition debut album on french label ‘Pulsar’ and soon found himself in Daniel Johnston’s backing band!! (appearing on recent live DVD ‘The Angel and Daniel Johnston’) Musicially he sounds like Jeffrey Lewis (he also illustates for a living) but more bitter…Definately worth checking out!

Kathryn Edwards is a very talented girl! Both an artist and musician, she started her career by singing backing vocals on Liam Frost’s remarkable debut album. She’s now striking out on her own & doing rather well too, because debut single ‘Close Your Mind’ was awarded record of the week at Piccadilly records. Shortly followed by sets on Channel M & BBC manchester, maybe the next to follow Karima Francis to the big time!

Jam On Bread is like no other round these parts, singing ukukele songs about Jason Donovan, sea creatures and swedish indie bands, dare I suggest he’s totally unmissable!

*****

Maybe see you there…
