The secret guests headlining The Skinny’s special freshers’ week show has been unveiled as Leeds-based indie rockers Menace Beach. The lo-fi garage quintet’s trip across the Pennines coincides with the release of their forthcoming EP, Super Transporterreum, recorded with Hookworms’ MJ. If you didn’t catch their recent slots supporting blood-spilling riff demons The Cribs then now’s your chance. They’ll join an already-impressive bill of groove inducing live music, featuring fellow Yorkshire fuzz-mongers Weirds, local grunge throwbacks False Advertising and alt-rock Mancs Fruit Bomb, all cherry-picked by the North West edition of cultural trend-setters The Skinny, whose student handbook will be stacked high for you to take home. Fresher or not, join the fun.

Fri 25 Sep, Deaf Institute, 135 Grosvenor Street, M1 7HE. Tel: 0161 276 9350, 7pm, £3 adv,
