Yes, its the end of the summer, and as I type I’m staring out of the window of my apartment looking at the pissing down rain nursing a nice little hangover. Well, why should that come in the way of great music? Manchester’s favourite Americana tinged folksmiths and all round nice lads The Travelling Band are to play a rather special intimate little gig at the Nexus Art Cafe this afternoon at 5pm. With a selection of teas, cakes and nice sarnies on offer as well, its pretty much exactly what the doctor ordered.
Here’s a taster of what The Travelling Band sound like, should you be unfamiliar (and shame on you!). A great cover of the Stone Roses’ classic Waterfall, and proof that they really are Manchester lads at heart. See you down the front with a scone.
The Travelling Band – Nexus Art Cafe, Dale St, Northern Qtr. Today, 5pm. Free.
