In The City 2010

Can you believe it's that time again? Fresher's Week, In The City, Literature Fest, Zombie Pride, Christmas!? Who knows where the time goes? says Sandy Denny. I concur.

Anyway, one thing at a time ... This year's In The City as usual takes over every square foot of Mancunian performance space to showcase the most exciting new musicians for the edification of journos, musos, PR monkeys and punters alike.

This year's line up is mighty impressive. We are unreasonably flushed in particular about the following ...

Wednesday 13th ...

Chiddy Bang @ The Roadhouse, I played 'Opposite Of Adults' at Off The Hook last month, went down a treat

D/R/U/G/S @ Ruby Lounge, amazing electronica

Sophie's Pigeons and Young British Artists @ The Castle, saw YBA support Asobi Seksu, interesting stuff but I hear they've upped their game ...

Thursday 14th ...

Pulled Apart By Horses @ Night and Day, WARNING: HEAVY SHIT

Sky Larkin @ Ruby Lounge, do not miss, DO NOT MISS, y'hear?

D/R/U/G/S @ Band On The Wall, second chance to see, yes they're that good

Brown Brogues @ The Castle, unapologetic, touching lo-fi indie of the kind you thought they might not make any more but they do so there

Sky Larkin

Friday 15th ...

D/R/U/G/S @ The Soup Kitchen, okay stop now ...

Devlin @ Night & Day, taking on The Streets at his own game

Clock Opera @ The Roadhouse, this band have knocked out two of my favourite ever rmxs (Everything Everything's 'MY KZ UR BF' and Marina's 'I Am Not A Robot', and they played a beautiful support slot for EE's Barfly album launch gig, they are really special

Dutch Uncles @ Ruby Lounge
