We’re delighted to welcome Kristin Hersh’ Electric Trio back to Manchester!

Influential songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kristin Hersh, leader of the indie rock band Throwing Muses and the noise rock power trio 50 Foot Wave, is back on the road with her highly acclaimed Throwing Muses release, Sun Racket.

The touring trio is a hard-hitting super group: Fred Abong, bass player from Throwing Muses (who opens solo, promoting his new LP, Yellow Throat) and Rob Ahlers, drummer of 50 Foot Wave. These electric trio shows are loud, tight and intense, featuring material from across Kristin’s 30-year career.

‘Lean, Immersive, and groove-heavy, tapping the vein of hardscrabble psychedelia that defines their best work’ – Pitchfork

Tour support comes from Fred Abong.

This is a 10+ show. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
