On Saturday March 10th, we have a very exciting first Manchester show for LA band, So Many Wizards. Musically, they remind us a fair bit of The Shins, with perhaps a touch of Real Estate at times. They've just released their latest download single, Lose Your Mind on JAXART Records. Their first UK release 'Inner City / Best Friends' was given some great support by the likes of Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens, with their first UK tour set to finish at the latter's clubnight in London. They've previously played shows in LA with the likes of Abe Vigoda and Best Coast.
Support comes from a Manchester band that have played just a handful of gigs so far, but have already featured on Drowned in Sound and all of the finest blogs around. They are Shinies. They make raucous sounding fuzz pop with just the right combo of distortion and melody. Check out their new single out on Dirty Bingo soon, Shola, plus their first track that got everyone in such a state, Spent Youth.
As ever, our alternate indie clubnight follows from 11 til 3am. Usual prices (£3/ £4 in). You know the drill by now.
