JUBILEE LIVE AT THE KINGS ARMS - Sunday

On Sunday 3rd June, with AAAK playing live and Suzuki Method doing a DJ set, we can't see the Queen featuring much at the Kings Arms, even though the event is titled `Jubilee Live'.

Altogether, there's eight live independent bands from Salford and beyond playing a total range of styles at the Kings for the princely sum of £3 entrance on the door - or book via www.kingsarmssalford.com.

AAAK, Dear Sherlock, Stalagmites, Ben Peel and Wool City Band, The Happy Fallen, Saturday Morning Cartoons, Ruby Tuesday and Zap Zap Zap will present an `urban mash' with tunes flying from pop to indie to electronic, dance to grunge to folk, with DJing via Suzuki Method. A top atmosphere is guaranteed. And you can listen to one track for each band to get you in the mood on Sound Cloud – click here

 

EUROCULTURED STREET FESTIVAL – Sunday and Monday

Up to 15,000 people are expected in Manc city centre on Sunday and Monday (3rd and 4th June) to see 100 bands, dancers, performers and artists in 15 unlikely venues around Oxford Road, like tunnels and car parks as well as bars.

This is the ninth year of Eurocultured, which brings some of Europe's top bands, including Caravan Palace, The Japanese Popstars and Death In Vegas. But there's also a big Salford presence at the Fest…

Top Salford rappers Broke `n' £nglish headline the WESC Stage (opp Font Bar) on Monday 4th at 6:15pm. We love the Costa Del Salford track by Broke's rapper Strategy on YouTube (see here).

Meanwhile, Salford's indie pop Lottery Winners perform on the Student Castle Stage on Monday 4th June. They have the saddest love video ever on YouTube for their Don't Waste Your Time track (see here). We're still crying. And Salford's Tender Machine play music that's summed up by their name at the Thirsty Scholar at 5:30pm on Monday 4th June (see performance video here)…
 
Eurocultured's Festival event director Cass, lives in Salford and says, "We always try and ensure that local bands have a space at the Festival, there is some amazing music coming out of the city and they will hold their own alongside international acts. We did the festival in Finland last year as part of the European Capital of Culture celebrations in Turku and we took Broke 'n' £nglish with us. They went down a storm and this year looks like they will finally get the international recognition they deserve."

It's £20 for a two day ticket, £15 for Sunday and £12 for Monday, in advance. Tickets are available online via Skiddle.

I'M BRIAN AND SO'S MY WIFE – Monday

No Jubilee could be avoided without hitting the No Turn Unstoned night at The Black Lion on Monday 4th June, from 7pm. This now well established open mic night which brings a unique title to each of the gigs promises the best of Salford poetry, music, tall stories and comedy. And it's open mic so everyone can have a go. We recommend someone gets up and does a karaoke version of the Pistols' God Save The Queen.

I'm Brian and So's My Wife is the perfect pre-compliment to The Black Lion's People's Party the next day (Tuesday - see previous Salford Star feature here)

See JG's comment below...Salford Star does give lots of coverage to Peter Hook cos he's from Salford and we try to big up all great Salford cultural icons. But favourable? Did you read our review of the Freebass album? see here http://tinyurl.com/cofdl6j And no, he doesn't give us any money. We did get a free copy of his ace Hac book though!

BUILE HILL MANSION SUPPORT GROUP MEETING HEARS OF 'CHINESE' PLANS FOR SALFORD

Over the last few months, rumours of a Chinese buyout of the AJ Bell Stadium and its land, hand outs for the Buile Hill Mansion and a possible plan for a Salford Red Devils takeover have been louder than bombs.

DISTRAUGHT SALFORD DAUGHTER CAN’T GET TO FAMILY GRAVE AT ST PAUL’S CHURCH IN KERSAL

Star date: 14th August 2018

A TALE OF TWO CUSSONS, HIGH BRAMBLES AND IMPERIAL LEATHER

At the front of St Paul's Churchyard in Kersal, the first neat and tidy grave you come across is that of Alexander Cussons and famous family. However the grave of the less famous William Evans, who produced the first ever bar of Imperial Leather soap, is at the very back of the yard and totally inaccessible, literally buried beneath 6ft high weeds and brambles.

William Evans' great granddaughter, Lesley Northall, is distraught as she wants to add her mother's ashes to the site but can't get near it. This isn't just the tale of two Cussons gurus but also of a church struggling for resources.
