The Manchester Creative Collective are stoked to be working alongside Flick of the Finger to bring you a bi-weekly pick of local gigs for all the tip-top live music that’s taking place in the North West.

Those who lament the so-called death of live music, need to give their head a huge wobble and look at some of the gems we have selected over the next week or so.

We also have an editorial special on all the wonderful goings on for ‘The Charlatans’ CW9 gigs and events which will be coming soon so stay tuned. Its mammoth and rightly deserves its very own section!

So, get ya dancing shoes on and we may see you down the front, supporting emerging music at grass roots!
