The Northern Quarter’s new Bench Self Made Gallery is hosting a series of FREE mid-week lunchtime gigs featuring Manchester’s musical talent performing acoustic sets. This week’s live set comes from local 6-piece and BBC 6 Music favourite, Frazer King. Perfect as a festive warm up, you’ll hear echoes of the Pogues and Dirty Projectors in what’s likely to be an atmospheric live show. The gallery has just opened with the remit of hosting of events, exhibitions and workshops in collaboration with local talent of all persuasions. Reflecting the Manchester fashion brand’s philosophy, the space is open to musicians, creatives, artists and DJs to use it as a platform. Saturday afternoons, for example, see a series of interactive workshops offering the chance to learn new skills, consult experts and hang out with like-minded dudes. Check out the website for how to get involved.
