Band on the Wall’s queer variety show returns in cahoots with Manchester Histories Festival and Manchester District Music Archive with much more than you bargained for. A lecture aiming to dig up the city’s hidden LGBTQ music by MDMA’s Abigail Ward is free to attend at the start of the night, before a hip-shaking club night launches the Histories Festival with the cream of the city’s creative queers. Husk, ILL, Ménage à Trois and LIINES all command stage time, while A Queer Revue’s DJs will spin you into the next day. Quite a package, we think you’ll agree.
Fri 3 Jun, Band on the Wall, 25 Swan Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 5JZ, 11pm, £6, www.bandonthewall.org
