Punk gigs in Manchester this week..!

Two great punk gigs in Manchester this week..

___


Wednesday 10th December

DEATH IS NOT GLAMOROUS (norway)
Pretty fucking amazing jump-about melodic-and-then-some
hardcore pop from Norway on Dead & Gone records. Falling
somewhere between Jerseys Best Dancers and the s/t Lifetime
records, mixed with the tiniest inklings of incredibly awesome driving 90's
indie/emo rock. In fact, I'm g'na go as far as saying 95% Lifetime, 5%
Cross My Heart-ish. Mostly like Lifetime, though.
