We’re excited to be bringing Tav Falco’s Panther Burns to Manchester.


Vocalist Tav Falco started Tav Falco’s Panther Burns ‘orchestra’ in February 1979 with drummer Ross Johnson, guitarist Alex Chilton, and synth player Eric Hill, in Memphis, Tennessee.

Since then a number of musicians from the Memphis, New Orleans and New York areas worked with Falco in the group, recording albums on indie labels like Rough Trade, Triple X, New Rose, In the Red, Last Call and others. A ‘best of’ compilation called Love’s Last Warning collects some of the songs from more than a dozen albums and mini-albums released by Falco over the years.

Currently, tracks from Shadow Dancer and other Panther Burns releases may be found for download on MSN Music among other locations.

Since the early 1990s, Falco has been based more in Europe and has performed more with European musicians, including drummer Giovanna Pizzorno, Gregoire ‘Cat’ on guitar, and Laurent Lo on bass.

Main support comes from Hey! Manchester favourites Brown Brogues.

Opening the show are Dirty Heels.

This show is a co-promotion with the Ruby Lounge.
