We’re delighted to welcome back Hey! Manchester regulars (that’s twice so far) Horse Feathers – who will this time will play at the amazing venue that is The Kings Arms.

Justin Ringle moved to Portland in 2004 and began to play regularly under the moniker Horse Feathers. In 2005 Peter Broderick¬†– himself a solo artist and part-time Efterklang multi-instrumentalist –¬†heard two songs that Justin had recorded in a friend’s basement, and proceeded to track him down via the internet. Shortly after that, the two started playing music together. For the most part, Justin writes the songs and then Peter helps to arrange them. Last year’s House with No Home album, on Chicago’s Touch & Go Records, is a huge favourite of ours.

We have two excellent support acts lined up for this show: Chicago’s Joe Pug, who was last in town supporting Steve Earle at the Bridgewater Hall no less; and the Mountain & the Trees, aka Canadian Jon Janes. He playfully describes himself as ‘folk-pop or folk-n-roll’.

This show takes place at The Kings Arms, one of our favourite small venues in town. It’s a great independent theatre and arts hub, which also happens to be one of the best real ale pubs around, and is just a five-minute walk from Deansgate, just down Bridge Street.

Tickets are available from the bar, Piccadilly Records, Common (no booking fee), Seetickets.com, WeGotTickets.com and on 0871 220 0260.



All shows are 18+ unless otherwise stated.
