Whatta gwahn! (Updated again)

The biggest thing coming up in the area is Whatfest this weeked; a selection of decent bands playing, and there should be something for everyone.  One of my local favourites, Chloë, will be taking to the stage on Sunday, so here’s hoping the weather holds.  (As a general rule of thumb, if I go to a festival it’ll rain so make sure you take an umbrella and some wellies!)

Fear not, though; for those of you stuck in town, all is not lost!

It’s indie night at the Box on Friday, and on Sunday punk legends UK Subs will be ripping it up; I’m too old to pogo any more, but it should be a good night.

At the M Club on Wednesday it’s the usual offering (and remember, kids, it’s only a quid!), on Saturday you can catch the Salford Jets, and next Tuesday will see the arrival of the one and only GLC (you knows it, bra!) — seems that since posting this the Jets gig has vanished and GLC has been postponed until December.

There’s plenty on offer at the Limey; on Thursday U2 II do their thing, Friday offers a tribute to the masters of the 3-chorder with John Coghlan’s Quo, Saturday provides an homage to the ska stylings of UB40, and on Sunday classic rock sounds will be provided by Broken and Already Gone, both of whom did a sterling job supporting Warrior Soul last week. Even better, Thursday and Sunday are free admission, so at £2 a pint you’re in for a cheap night out.

On Saturday night at the Imp you can catch covers band Back2Back; as always, free admission and a friendly atmosphere!

I’ll be heading in to town later to find out what’s on at the smaller venues, but one thing’s for sure — nobody has an excuse not to see at least one gig this week!
