Band on the Wall presents a series of free entry gigs and DJ sets on our second stage, located to the rear of our brand new bar. We’ll be shining a light on our favourite emerging artists across all genres with a diverse programme of global sounds from, and inspired by, the music of cultures from around the world.
Moby Dickless are Sloth, Maria and Fred, based in Manchester. Influenced by the likes of Massive Attack, BADBADNOTGOOD and Khruangbin, they weave a variety of influences together in their own unique blend of Post Bop Trip Hop. Since meeting at university they have looked to push sonic boundaries with their combination of dub-soaked bass lines, dissonant guitar and sleazy drumming.
Their debut EP Life Aquatic was released in September 2020 with their second EP, ‘Live in the Boat Room’ arriving in December 2021.
The fresh 3-piece outfit Ladybarn have set out to explore light and shade through the means of Jazz, Alternative Rock and Soul. The smooth blend of Ollie Walsh’s rich vocal tones and soulful guitar, Julian Wickenden’s melodic bass and sax lines and Zak Osborne’s flowing drum kit style transport the listener through high energy break-beats and heartfelt slow jams; a band equally inspired by Led Zeppelin as they are by Amy Winehouse. Manchester based, Ladybarn formed in 2020 at Salford University and since have debuted at many venues across the Cities.
