MANCHESTER GIGS IN MUSIC: April 2011 Pt.1

April gigs in Manchester have a distinct charitable slant to them. On Monday 4 April at the Deaf Institute (and then on 7 April at the Union Chapel in London) the Manchester Aid to Kosovo album "Ten" is launched. Playing the Manchester leg are Badly Drawn Boy, The Travelling Band (acoustic set), Jim Noir, Silverclub, Jo Rose, Liam Frost, Gideon Conn, Josphine Oniyama and Liz Green. Tickets just £10 if still available.

And then ten days later at the Ruby Lounge is Japanchester, a fundraiser for the work of the British Red Cross in Japan following last month's earthquake. Line-up includes Patterns, Trojan Horse, Plank!, From The Kites of San Quentin, Day For Airstrikes and The Goddamn Electric. Advance tickets just £5. All credit to bands on both bills for doing their bit. Now over to you - if can support either or both nights please do. And as ever a mixtape [58 mins / 65MB] of bands playing Manchester the rest of the month to help inform your gig-going decision-making - link in the post below this one.
