The Manchester Gig Guide: 13th-19th October 2008

After the exertions of last week’s five night run of gigs we’re taking a well earned break this week, but, as usual, there’s still plenty of good things on. Not at the Academy on Monday, though, where the Kaiser Chiefs hawk their no doubt unremarkable new album, the name of which escapes me at the minute. At least they’ve got the far more interesting Late Of The Pier in support. The best bet for Monday is down at the Ruby Lounge where Hot Club de Paris are in action, supported by excellent Leeds popsters Sky Larkin. Also on Monday, electro-popper Esser is at the Night & Day.

On Tuesday there’s a bit of post-rock going on at the Night & Day with Texans This Will Destroy You being supported by Manchester’s own Day For Airstrikes. Belgian rockers dEUS are at the Academy 3 while Jeremy Walmsley plays two gigs: the first an under-18s only set at the Koffee Pot, starting at 6:00pm, followed by a strictly over-18s set around the corner at the Night & Day with support from Jay Jay Pistolet.

Wednesday sees Leeds’ I Concur play the Dry Bar and, after a quick listen to a few of their tracks on last.fm, I must admit they sound pretty damn good. Also, on what is a busy night, The Paddingtons play the Roadhouse, the frankly shit Towers Of London are at the Academy 3 while Haven, a band who disappeared without trace, and without anyone even noticing, back in 2001, come back to haunt us with their mediocre Britrock at the Night & Day.

On Thursday Manc prog rockers Oceansize begin a three day residency at the Roadhouse in celebration of their 10th anniversary while Blood Red Shoes are at the Academy 3 with Rolo Tomassi in tow. On Friday another Leeds band, The Sugars, play Moho Live. 

Saturday is very busy with local journalist, author, punk rocker and season ticket holder at Wagamama in Spinningfields (well, he’s always there waiting for his takeaway when we go in) John Robb bringing Goldblade to the Academy 3. Puressence, another band on the comeback trail, play the Academy with original support band Marion now replaced by Exit Calm after singer Jaime went down with pneumonia last week. Marion are back as well! WTF! Also, Dizzee Rascal plays the Warehouse Project but the best bill of the night is surely at the Deaf Institute for Beepfest which goes from 3pm to 3am and has Jim Noir, Magic Arm, The Beep Seals, The Answering Machine and many more spread over two stages. Plus there’s a literary stage hosted by the Institute’s regular lit night “No Point In Not Being Friends” which promises readings, poetry, comedy and acoustic sets from some of the bands playing the main stages.
