SALFORD MUSIC FESTIVAL DAY THREE - SATURDAY

KILL FOR COMPANY PLAY THE CRESCENT…

Salford rock band Kill For Company have actually invented a new instrument to enhance the huge sound made by just two blokes, Mike Banfield and Mark O'Donoughue.

They've mated a bass and a lead guitar and have named the mutant a Gui-bass. Its unique awesome sound, we understand, is far bigger than seems possible. It must be top because Kill For Company are getting a growing following and reputation, playing gigs around the country, flying the flag for Salford music…

"It's great to get involved in the Salford music scene and the Festival" says Mark "The national media doesn't seem to understand that Salford is distinct in many ways from Manchester, so it's great to bring that to everyone's attention."

The Gui-bass must be experienced to be believed and you can catch the duo at The Crescent around 9pm Saturday night. Also listen to tracks and find out more at www.facebook.com/killforcompany

Kill For Company are just one of nine bands playing at The Crescent pub all day and evening from 2pm. The full line up is… The Black Label, The Shambolic, Majic Squid, The Newtons, Dirty Hearts Club, Positronik, Hot Vestry and Stop The Blackout.

MOLOTOV JUKEBOX PLAY ISLINGTON MILL…

Molotov Jukebox are a brilliant off the wall gypsy, jazzy kind of broken down cabaret outfit, which stars on accordion and vocals Natalia Tena, who played Nymphadora Tonks in the Harry Potter films. The Molotovs are joined by Salford Star favourite, Girl Peculiar, and Dirty North. This is one of the few paying gigs at the Festival but should be well worth the fee. This is proper late night, laid back, pissed up, chilled out sounds.

Islington Mill, James St, Salford M3, 9pm-4am. Tickets £7. 

FOLK AT THE HOPE…

Another gig that runs all afternoon and into the evening, with some good old Salford folk type music from the ever loveable Albert Thompson and the Jane and Mike Band. Also performing are Dark Angel Danny Donnely, KIT-B, Boz Hayward, Monkeys In Love, Derecho, Parent Manual, Mr Heart and Gwyn Thomas.

The Hope pub is on the corner of Eccles Old Road and Lancaster Road.
