Sounds From The Other City 2010

March 12 2010 | Category: News, Previews

Sounds From The Other City, Salford’s celebration of new music, returns on Sunday 2 May – and this year it’s expanding. If you’re lucky enough to bag one of the £15 passes, you may well find yourself watching space rock in Islington Mill, a bike orchestra in The Salvation Army, ex-shoegazers in St Phil’s Church, and even poetry in the excellent ale pub The New Oxford. Here’s the one-day festival’s first daytime (3pm-11pm) announcements:

    I headed down to Piccadilly Records the other day and purchased my ticket – I’m there!

    I’ve been going to SFTOC for quite a few years, but nearly missed out last year because tickets sold out pretty fast.

    If you’ve never been before, I recommend checking it out – getting your ticket sooner rather than later!
