Oh Bacchanal! | Tusk | Weds 16 Oct
Fast gaining a reputation for being one of the most fun places you can be on a Wednesday, Oh Bacchanal!’s residents are some of the most passionate you’ll find. Playing soca, dancehall and afrobeats, Tusk turns a little tropical, with music running til 2.

Frontin’ & Triangular w Spyro | Odder Bar | Thu 17 Oct
Following on from a wave of grime events in Manchester this last month or so, Odder plays host to one of the biggest in the game: Spyro. With dubplates for days, this is an opportunity to hear music on a system that you may never be able to hear again. Support comes from rising star OH91 and Frontin’ Residents.

Fatmia & The Eglo Live Band | Soup Kitchen | Fri 18 Oct
Fatima brings her live show to Manchester to preview material from her highly anticipated forthcoming album. Backed by the Eglo Live Band and with support from some of Eglo Record’s finest running late into the night, you know musical standards are going to be high here.

In The Loop 4th Birthday | The Roadhouse | Fri 18 Oct
Alternatively, celebrate Manchester HipHop institution In The Loop’s 4th birthday. Alongside the excellent resident DJs/extended family, a cypher, filmed by Standby Studios will be taking place, with a £50 cash prize for the winner.

Swing Ting ft DJ Q | Soup Kitchen | Sat 19 Oct
DJ Q (pictured) is somebody who we’ve wanted to put on for a long time – he’s simply one of the best DJs in the country right now, drawing from all areas of the garage spectrum. We’ve also got a debut for Murlo’s DJ Sharda alias, alongside Samrai, Fox and myself.

Honourable Mention:
Jagged Edge & 112 | The Ritz | Sat 19 Oct
If this was any other night than this Saturday, I’d be here. A 14 year old Ruben Platt would be very excited about this – two of R&B’s most legendary groups under one roof. Seriously though, come to Swing Ting instead, one of us will probably play Where The Party At to compensate.

Thanks to Swing Ting.

Wed 16 Oct - Sat 19 Oct
