We’ve hit Christmas week and finding reasons to be jolly is proving a little difficult. These uncertain times have led to a lot of shows and gigs being postponed, or worse, cancelled completely. But here at Manchester Wire, we know a lot of you, like ourselves, will still be after that live music fix—so we’ve rounded up a handful of live streamed and online content from local talent you can check out this week. Let’s take a look..
