Thu 6 Mar | Fantastic Mr Fox | Odder
Berlin resident via Manchester, Fantastic Mr Fox returns home for a one-off show as he works on material for his upcoming debut LP. Expect the kind of dancefloor-friendly vibes that have captivated hearts and feet since 2010’s Evelyn EP. Support comes from the Bank and Mekka residents.

Fri 7 Mar | BPM’s 4th Birthday ft Darko | The Roadhouse
Celebrating 4 years in the promotions game, BPM bring grime up-and-comer Dark0 to The Roadhouse to help with the festivities. The party also doubles as a launch for the first release on BPM’s eponymous label, by local lad G.S.ONE. There’s a bonus DJ set from Fallacy and support will be provided by the BPM residents.
£3 advance tickets:

Fri 7 Mar | GETME! | Soup Kitchen
Hotly tipped London-based clubnight and label Getme! collaborate with Soup Kitchen to showcase the best of their roster. Both Pále and Lixo have been gaining momentum of late, with collaborations with Joshua Idehen for the former and an NTS residency for the latter. Headliner Kit Grill’s Mirror Image LP crept out at the back end of last year, with single Velodrome helping to propel it into many end-of-year lists.
£5 on the door.

Sat 8 Mar | Chow Down ft Bok Bok & E.M.M.A. | Joshua Brooks
Yet another birthday, this time it’s the turn of Chow Down to turn 3 years old, marked by a return to Manchester for Night Slugs bossman Bok Bok and one of 2013’s standout breakthrough artists, E.M.M.A. Night Slugs have been at the forefront of UK club music for a number of years now and Bok Bok is capable of providing a perfect mix of upfront material and forgotten classics. E.M.M.A.’s debut album came out last year on Keysound Recordings and this’ll be a great taste of what she has in store for 2014 and beyond.
£5 advance tickets:

Sat 8 Mar | Hotmilk | The Roadhouse
