Platform 54 present an afternoon of tea, cake and music (5pm onwards)
Renowned for one of the best fry ups in town, Koffee Pot this Sunday will lift up it’s graffiti-cladded shutter for a one-off gig showcasing some of Manchester’s favourite musicians cum poets. The event will be compered by widely published Mike Garry, who Shaun Ryder described as ‘an excellent Manc Street Poet’, and who’s work is known to celebrate the beautiful ugliness of Manchester.
Headlining the bill is Danny Mahon, no stranger to the NQ music scene having appeared at numerous events including NQLovesU Festival last year. In 2010 Danny gained the accolade of highest selling vinyl artist at Piccadilly Records, with his double a-side ‘beat me up/ak – 47’. His catchy, heartfelt tunes are the right kind of accompaniment to a good cuppa, and a slice of something sweet, have a listen here.
Joining Danny Mahon are Sheffield heralded six-piece Heath and the The Thin Man, playing a mixture of yiddish and Beatnik inspired songs from their debut album entitled Bohemia – Sunday sounds with a difference.
Tickets cost only £5 and this includes a free cup of tea AND a slice of cake, you can’t say fairer than that now, can you? Grab yours online here.
