To complete your Easter weekend, look no further than Chorlton’s Oddest bar. The fun starts on Thursday night with the launch of new acoustic night, Crossroads, hosted by Manchester favourites Some Kind of Illness. Taking place on the first Thursday of the month (7.30-10.30pm), the debut line up includes sets from Rachel Ferguson, John Lowndes, Mark Corrin, Imogen Hoyle, Jonty Brindley and many more – plus a special appearance from Some Kind Of Illness. Friday (3 Apr, 9pm-1.30am) sees a free DJ set from So Flute head honcho, Danuka. If you like the worldwide sounds of Gilles Peterson, touching on everything from hip hop to afrobeat and jazz, this is the one. Read our full preview here. Saturday (4 Apr, 9pm-1.30am) has more DJ fun, in the shape of party-starter Jimmy Nolan of Strange Daze and Blew soundsystems fame. On Sunday (5 Apr), meanwhile, the bar welcomes Charlie Fleig aka the talent behind Doodle deep house and disco night, back to the decks. You may have come across Charlie before at Deaf Institute, Soup’s Wolf Music, Cord, Mono or The Blue Pig. We’re excited already.

Thu 2 – Sun 5 Apr, Oddest bar, 414-416 Wilbraham Road, Manchester, M21 0SD. Tel: 0161 860 7515,
