We’re hyped to be part of Mancuinian punk outfit Loose ArticlesKick Like A Girl tour in February, when they bring a special show to our stage as part of Independent Venue Week. Specialising in discordant, hypnotic repetition, tales of boozy nights out, and radical politics, the punk quartet’s music speaks to all those determined to get through the age of austerity with tongue in cheek, pint in hand, and two feet firmly on the dancefloor.

The group describe their second EP Chaos (Alcopop Records) as “a satirical examination of the hazards of modern life—keyboard warriors, the death of the independent pub, sexist footy fans, and the hopelessness that the woman in the street often feels in the face of impending doom.” Feminine and threatening, Loose Articles are the Manchester punk heroes you need in your life.
