Indie-rock outfit The Soft Pack return to Manchester’s Soup Kitchen in support of their second full-length album, Stripped. While their first self-titled LP was refreshingly small scale, juxtaposing Matt Lamkin’s cynical, slacker pop vocals with undeniably catchy three-chord rock, Stripped strives to delve into the sonic evolution of the San Diego four-piece’s sound, making them a thrilling live prospect.

Fri 25 Jan, Soup Kitchen, 31-33 Spear Street, M1 1DF. Tel: 0161 236 5100, 7.30pm, £9,
