Twenty-five years on, US alt-rockers Bash & Pop are to reform for a tour that will see a comeback LP of feel good frenzies released via Fat Possum. Originally the phoenix that rose from the ashes of The Replacements’ split in 1991, Bash & Pop have repeated the feat for their forthcoming summer tour and are set to celebrate the rebirth with a run of shows, including Manchester’s Deaf Institute. As well as ushering in a reissue of debut album Friday Night Is Killing Me via Rhino, the resurrection has spurred on ringleader Tommy Stinson to pen a hatful of new anthems that can win over a whole new generation. To be in with a chance of winning two tickets to the show, simply email competitions [at] manchesterwire [dot] co [dot] uk with a subject of ‘Bash & Pop Competition’, + your name, age, Twitter handle and phone number. Competition closes at 9am Wed 28 Jun. The winner will be informed by Twitter later that day. This competition has now ended.

Wed 28 Jun, Deaf Institute, 135 Grosvenor Street, Manchester, M1 7HE, Tel: 0161 276 9350, 7.30pm, £16.50,
