Fireworks Night play what has been described as nocturnal harmonised chamber pop, with folk melodies and intricate string arrangements. Sounding like a more sparsely arranged and folky Tindersticks, Fireworks Night make a rare trip North for your listening pleasure. Folk noir with occasional post-rock leanings, not to be missed.

Vinny PeculiarTaking a break from his band featuring members of The Smiths and The Fall ‘The Tony Hancock of pop’ Vinny Peculiar returns to his spiritual home of Manchester to play a rare solo acoustic show. Hailing from Birmingham, Vinny started life in a variety of punk and art rock bands before branching out into bittersweet tales of everyday life and love. Vinny has previously toured with British Sea Power, Malcolm Middleton and Edwyn Collins.

California’s marvelous, mysterious Bird By Snow completes the night’s line-up. Have a listen – we think he’ll be right at home.
