Open mic sign-up from 7 pm, show 7.30 ish..Utterly free.entry, but do take advantage of the comprehensively stocked bar.

Fiona Brehony is a London based poet from Wythenshawe, Manchester, sharing observations from solitude in vacuous spaces of the Capital.

Formed by singer-song writer Danthedan, The Yes Mess will smother you with fanciful incantations that will let your inner animal out.
Joyful and damaged, the vocal combinations live to tell the tale, harmonising and winning. The solid guitar rhythm will welcome you on a journey through the streets of, ‘Illness and Danger’, the ‘Land of the Laughing’ and the afterlife of a ‘Caterpillar’. The snarl and passion, groove and nagging pop melody, will boot-through as the drums roll out the swings and blows, supported by tight, peachy bass beats, and lead guitar experimentations; cheeky, creepy and bewailing. The accordion waves nightmarish imaginations; swiftly U-turning between klezmer to Cuban, jingle to jangle.

“They practice a dark stem of alternative folk which is energetic and mysterious. It’s uplifting and real. Great lyrics, surreal images, dark and unique sounds.” – The Lantern Society

“An enigmatic, folky, funky, hook laden five piece that rattle the same hallucinatory cages as the Beta Band at their oddest, with elements of Syd’s Pink Floyd in the mix.” – The Gladstone
