New year, new music I say. January may be quiet month for gigs but there's still plenty to discover with gigs from new Manchester bands (Beat The Radar, Delphic, Egyptian Hip Hop, The Answering Machine) as well as from visitors from American, Denmark and Finland. Plus what looks to be the first ever live performance from New Jersey's Memory Tapes. This will sell out so don't miss out on this or other treats this chilly month.
