With bands and record stores around the country revving up to celebrate what is already the seventh Record Store Day in the UK, venues around Manchester are getting set to provide the platform for festivities all around the city. As such, The Deaf Institute has announced its annual Record Store Day Party lineup.

Record Store Day Party @ The Deaf Institute

For this year, the venue on Grosvenor Street is giving us a bill filled with emerging local talent from around Manchester, as co-headliners Ghost Outfit and Temple Songs will take to the stage, as well as Francis Lung, The Louche and Hartheim.

Ghost Outfit were the first band to have a full-length album released on independent Salford label SWAYS Records, which was once home to PINS, Money and Kult Country. It’ll be the first time they are playing back in Manchester for almost a year, as the band are working towards the release of their second album. This is guaranteed to be another attack on our oh-so-beloved ear-drums as their MBV inspired soundscapes will fill the Deaf Institute (pun intended).

Together with Ghost Outfit, there are current scene frontrunners Temple Songs who will be co-headlining and providing the ying to Ghost Outfit’s yang with their sugary garage-pop having been described as ‘catchier than E Coli.’ by The Quietus.

With an entrance fee of a mere three pounds sterling, there’s more money’s worth being lined up to make it impossible for you lot to play the ‘I’m so skint’-card. Francis Lung will represent the city’s solo troubadours and their songwriting.

If it’s more shoegaze you’re after, The Louche will be at hand to provide the needed supply for your demand. New kids on the block, Hartheim, have already had their latest cassette release get bigged up by the likes of Mary Anne Hobbs and Steve Lamacq, so who knows where they’ll be playing next year on Record Store Day.

Festivities are set to begin at 6pm | Tickets: £ 3 advance/with flyer OR £ 5 on the door  | Official Facebook
