The Manchester Gig Guide: 20th-26th October 2008

There’s plenty more to be going on with in Manchester this week with Rilo Kiley’s flame-haired indie siren Jenny Lewis on solo duty at the Academy 3 on Monday. On Tuesday there’s Vampire Weekend at the Academy with support from Wild Beasts while downstairs at the Club Academy there seems to be a hangover from the weekend’s Beepfest going on with Jim Noir, The Beep Seals, Gideon Conn and Magic Arm performing. And it costs nowt to get in, with entry being on a strictly first come, first served basis.

On Wednesday the Manchester Blog Awards are taking place at Matt and Phred’s on Tibb Street and we’ll try our best to get down there on time (we weren’t nominated – boooo!) ‘cos we’ll be at the Academy 3 for the Shred Yr Face tour featuring Times New Viking, No Age and Los Campesinos! It’s going to be very noisy but we’ll probably duck out after openers, the excellent TNV, to make a dash for the awards, the nominations for which can be found at The Manchizzle. On the same night at the Deaf Institute the wonderful young Swedes Those Dancing Days will be holding court with Joy Formidable in support. There’s plenty more where that came from with Tilly and the Wall and Slow Club at the Club Academy and Aimee Mann at the Academy. A busy night, then.

On Thursday there’s a major clash with Mogwai at the Academy and Port O’Brien at the Night & Day. As good as The Hawk Is Howling is, I think I’m going to plump for the Night & Day as Port O’Brien’s debut All We Could Do Was Sing is one of my favourite albums this year and I’ve seen Mogwai many times before anyway. Also on Thursday, Elbow, buoyed by their recent, and much deserved, Mercury Prize success, play the first of two nights at the Apollo.

On Friday you can catch local electro-poppers and parentheses botherers (We Are) Performance at the Deaf Institute while the Aftershow at Moho Live brings us the likes of The Maybes?, The Old Romantic Killer Band, The Orchids, Pushbike Army and The Faraways.

On Saturday, Black Kids play the Warehouse Project and on Sunday you can see The Datsuns at the Night & Day or Mystery Jets at the Academy 2, perhaps.
