Have you been to The Bay Horse lately? Tried the fantastic Small Plates menu? No, well maybe this bunch of special events will be enough to prompt a visit.

A Page of Punk / Pure Graft / Pooch / Throwing Stuff
This night of Punk is headlined by a band visiting The Bay Horse all the way from Japan!
This Japanese band are a totally happy, fun and fast punk rock band.
Pure Graft come to do their first gig in Manchester in about 15 months. They look too tough to be playing this, but here they are! http://
Hardcore influenced by the 80s american hardcore bands…..but a Minor Threat cover in their set doesn’t sound out of place at all. Will they have anything recorded by this gig?……….probably not.
Do you like Assfactor4? Then you’ll probably like Huffin Paint!
Wednesday 8th August / 8pm / £4
Ebb & Flow present Slingshot Dakota / Bangers / The Static Age / Calvinball / Caves / Model Radio
6 bands for less than a pound each makes for a great value Sunday night. Doors are from 6.30pm and the promise is that the gig will start promptly at 6.45pm so don’t be late. If you fancy getting involved with distros, zines and even cakes then get in touch. In Ebb & Flow’s opinion “more shows need bakery”! The FULL line-up (no more bands to be added) is;
The Static Age
Sunday 12th August / 6.30pm / £5
Fat Out Til You Pass Out presents The Cosmic Dead / Laser Dream Eyes / Kult Country
This gig features the talents of Glasgow’s premier purveyors of strosphere climbing psychedelia. Sprawling with tripped out improvisations and atmosphere swallowing riffage, prepare to be ingested and regurgitated into the weedian heavy cosmos, populated by forefathers Can and Popul Vuh.
Thursday 16th August / 7.30pm / £5
