MAY 2012

We have trawled through the forthcoming gigs in and around Manchester so you don’t have to. We believe that if we are going to recommend a gig to you, then it should be exactly that, a recommendation.

There are many other sites out here on the internet that have a gig guide, but how many of them can say they have actually listened to every single band/act they have listed? Well to be honest I don’t know the answer to that, but I’d guess not many, if any at all. Anyway, this is exactly what we do and hopefully the result is the best Manchester gig guide available. We shall let you be the judge.

This page is updated on a regular basis, so please check back often like.

Also please feel free to plug any gigs in the comments box at the bottom of this page.
