Here’s my first recommendation of where to take a punt on a relatively new act if you’re at a loose end this weekend in Manchester.
It seems lately that new venues are popping up every week in Manchester – and Soup Kitchen seems to be finding some great bands of late. This Sunday will see Brooklyn’s My Best Fiend take to the stage in this tiny basement. As always with new acts there isn’t much information out there, but if you were to choose a day of the week to go and see My Best Fiend, it would be a Sunday.
It was the track ‘Cracking Eggs’ (above) that grabbed my attention recently – it’s now had several plays and I find myself pleasurably relaxed each time. If it’s something deep and gentle that you are looking for, then this small and very intimate gig should do the trick for sure.
