Slow Down | Soup Kitchen | Thu 31 Oct | 11pm-4am | £TBC
If I was better at this, I’d make some kind of zombie related joke about Halloween and the return of Slow Down to Manchester after so many years  buried deep underground. DJs Sean Demdike, Finders Keepers’ Andy Votel and their special guest Edan can boast some of the strangest/rarest/best HipHop records between them. Slow Down should provide the platform for these obscure treats.

Wet Play | Dancehouse | Fri 1 Nov | 9pm – 4am | £5
You already either know how enjoyable this is going to be, or you’ll go down and be hooked. Not only boasting one of the strongest visual identities in Manchester (just look at this month’s flyer) – but also one of the strongest resident DJ crews, levels are always high. Featuring Johnny Abstract and Skanky Magic alongside those residents, loads more info can be found by visiting their hugely entertaining blog.

Overproof | Underdog | Fri 1 Nov | 11pm-4am | £3
Given Chimpo’s incredible quickfire style alongside his plethora of dubplates, this is probably going to be the rowdiest event Underdog has seen. Now also boasting the Oh Bacchanal! crew as residents, Overproof looks to be going from strength to strength following the move to their new venue.

Rum & Reggae | Soup Kitchen | Mon 4 Nov | 3pm-11pm | FREE
Help aid your weekend recovery upstairs at Soup Kitchen, with rum cocktails and excellent Caribbean food, all to a soundtrack provided by Swing Ting’s own Joey B and Samrai. Nothing but good vibes here, although it has been known to get a little bouncy at times!

Thanks to Swing Ting, 3rd Saturday of the month at Soup Kitchen.

Tue 29 Oct - Mon 4 Nov
