Stay Fresh at The Deaf Institute, Manchester 24 September 2016 Tickets from £4.00 — Book now

Stay Fresh is a two-floor all day party with the very best emerging indie bands from Manchester and across the country sharing the stage! To celebrate the inaugural night we’ve got a hefty line-up of 8 bands, all for just £6, and there’ll be some free drinks from Shindigger Brewery in the mix too!

Leeds’ Cowtown are a phenomenal three-piece with a dynamically brash over-stimulated indie rock sound. They’ll be topping the bill and celebrating the recent release of their new album ‘Paranormal Romance’.

Catholic Action are one of Glasgow’s best new bands, with a sinister glam sound centring around the quirky vocal and guitar talent of Chris McCrory. Their first release came out on Luv Luv Luv, home to Splashh, Spector, and Only Real)

Ethan & The Reformation are Manchester’s newest psych/rock band, whose debut single ‘Hollandia’ was recorded at Vibe Studios and mastered by Pete Maher (The Rolling Stones, U2, Noel Gallagher)

There’s also music from Manchester’s Shaking Chains, who bring indelibly catchy tunes that turn into instant earworms. Just one listen to ‘Bumper Sticker Patriot’, and we had to get them on the bill.

The phallically named Peaness are another act who’ll grab your attention. They just recently released a double-A 7” ‘I’m Not Your Problem/Fortune Favours The Bold’. Also, don’t miss one of Manchester’s newest bands, Kyotoya, Francis Lung with a live band, and the mysterious Liverpool act Pink Kink. Get tickets now!
