The Manchester Gig Guide: 8th-14th September 2008

When Jens Lekman played the Academy 3 back in May I arrived too late to catch Swedish duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums but was informed by Girl On A Train and A Free Man In Preston that they had been particularly good. Well, it looks like I’ll be missing them again on Monday night when they play the Deaf Institute on Grosvenor Street, as we’ll probably be too knackered after our weekend in Prague to bother. Shame on us.

On Tuesday Bowerbirds play the Sacred Trinity Church in Salford. They caught my ear over a year ago when their Hymns For A Dark Horse album was released in the States and garnered some glowing reviews. The album has finally been released over here and this promises to be a great gig; the band’s atmospheric, acoustic Americana should be perfect for that particular venue. Unfortunately, with it being JustHipper’s birthday on Tuesday, we might be otherwise engaged.

On Thursday Mark Kozelek’s Sun Kil Moon play the Roadhouse and I’m hoping that, with a full band in tow, this will be a lot better than his meandering solo performance at the Dancehouse Theatre last year.

Friday sees post-punk legends Wire at the Club Academy; on Saturday country legend Emmylou Harris plays the Bridgewater Hall and on Sunday Dead Meadow are on at the Roadhouse with The Beep Seals and The Old Romantic Killer Band in support.

    composed by sbsbsb0416 The very core of your writing whilst appearing reasonable initially, did not really sit perfectly with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer but just for a while. I still have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you might do nicely to fill in all those breaks. In the event that you can accomplish that, I could definitely be impressed.

    I don’t have a way of compressing two years of test time into a few weeks, so all I can say is that based on my experience with the Rugged Book and the Folio (which only claims three months between charges), battery life is not going to be an issue with this device.
