Manchester Scenewipe is a lovely website curated by a small team of Manchester music fans. They go to shows, pick great artists and get them to do special unplugged performances in odd places, all recorded in lovely high quality video for the world to see.
They’ve been creating quite a stir over the last year or so, and are celebrating their 100th recording tomorrow night at the Deaf Institute, with live music from Manchester’s favourite bleep ‘n strum experimentalist Denis Jones, backed up by math-rock poppers Cats in Paris, as well as With That Knife and Brown Brogues. Bringing the night to close will see Manchester indie-pop-rock deejays Underachievers Please Try Harder spinning some tunes. For more information on the gig, click here.
For a look at what MCR Scenewipe are all about, check out this marvellous recording of The Miserable Rich playing on the roof of Band on the Wall.
If a video party isn’t enough to swing it, then here’s a sample of what to expect from the beautiful music of Denis Jones.
12th August, The Deaf Institute Manchester. 8pm-late. £6 adv/£8otd.
