The Online Festival.....Manchester Dry Bar 9th November

Group logo of Gigs and Tours

As a follow up to the successful, inaugural Online Festival gig on the East Coast Ralph is pleased to be able to inform you that they are coming to Manchester with another great line-up of bands, two from Grimsby over on the east and three Manchester bands, two of which have featured in blogs recently.





The gig is in none other than Dry Bar which has undergone a refurbishment recently and with their new 25K Watt martin audio sound system, industry standard equipment, creative in-house promo team, in-house events and innovative talent coming through the doors every day Dry Bar is quickly re-instating itself as one of Manchester's premier music venues.




First on the line up is one of Grimsby's finest indie/punk bands, Just-Mammals.  They bill themselves as all about entertainment.  They hit you with an energetic set full of original material.  They're raw, upbeat and in your face so you can expect an earful from these East Coast lads.....





My Photos by Next up it's a band that's featured in one of Ralph's most read blogs and no strangers to Dry Bar. Transition Baby are an original indie/rock band with a dynamic sound and energetic live show. They consider their music to be a step forward in terms of their contemporaries in the indie/rock scene.  







Back to the East Coast again and it's The So ans So's from Cleethorpes.  Obvious Brit Pop influences with these cheeky chappies, especially front-man Richard Dutton and they're also no strangers to the Manchester music scene.









Next up is the popular Manchester band Stolen Haven who are a band of mates who have been performing their brand of indie music since last August and  they've secured slots supporting some well known acts since then.  Steve Craddock , Leeds based Indie rockers Sunshine Underground on a couple of occasions and local songsmith Danny Mahon.






Last but by no means least is four piece Manchester indie band The Ninth Watch.  The band is fronted by vocalist/guitarist Stephen Ahern, Mike Fieldhouse Guitar, Ian Holden Bass and Matt Ryan on drums.
