With August and festival season behind us, it's back to a month chock-full of gigs. Well, festival season is not quite over.

Not only does this month have the excellent (and now sold out) End of the Road Festival in North Dorset but also, closer to home, Manchester's own boutique, urban one-dayer Postcards From Manchester, this year at The Deaf Institute. Twelve hours, ten bands on the poster, three more in the basement courtesy of For Folk's Sake (and all for £12 pounds advance); it certainly lives up to to the promoters' aim "to show what Manchester is all about- innovation, originality, and most importantly, fun". Read more about the bands on Pull Yourself Together and buy a ticket whilst there still are some about.

This month's mixtape could have been just from Postcards From Manchester but instead it draws from the full month's offering. It may not be as coherent as Postcards From Manchester but there's so much this month I wanted to feature - and then look at all the other great gigs missed out! The download link for the mixtape [63mins/73 MB] is in the post following.
