August may be quieter than other months for gigs but feel the quality. The month is book-ended by two recommended events: the one-day Hedgefest this weekend and then the two-day Rowf! Rowf! Rowf! noise-extravanganza from Golden Lab Records on the last weekend of the month. And below another music compilation of music from other gigs in Manchester in between.

If the above is all a bit too 'male' and 'arty', you could consider The Ramonas, the all-female tribute to CBGBs' finest.
Cloey, Rohnny, Pee Pee and Margy. Nice idea. But there's only one way to find out if they are stoopid like The Ramones or just...
