Slim pickings for gigs this August as usual but look closer and there's some astonishing quality acts playing Manchester this month. British Sea Power bring Krankenhaus North to The Ruby Lounge this Friday, there's an unmissable psyche-folk double-bill at Band On The Wall on 16 August (and of course I'm missing it) plus the initimable H. Hawkline at Soup Kitchen towards the end of the month to mention just three nights.

As ever a mixtape of bands playing Manchester this month to help inform your gig-going decision-making - link in the post below this one
