To tie in with Record Store Day 2017, and to celebrate the launch of the ninth Soundwave Festival in Croatia, the folks at Eastern Bloc have combined forces with First Word Records to throw down a mother of a party at Stage & Radio.

The night will feature former Scratch Perverts member Mr Thing, Manchester’s own hip-hop soul duo Children of Zeus, First Word Records founder DJ Gilla and Soundwave resident Bobafatt in the main bar – plus Swindells and Jim Bane in the basement, as well as Jesterman and Taste the Difference in the first floor bar.
