The Salford Music Festival roars into its second day today with another zillion bands playing at venues all over the city.

Tonight at Islington Mill there's one of the few paying gigs, still affordable at £6.60, that will see a top Salford line-up of Suzuki Method, Death To The Strange and ace Little Hulton poet Words Escape Me, plus Manchester punk band The Minx.

Words Escape Me has a busy night because he's also at the Dock Bar on Media City at 8:15pm and is doing a few verses at The Eagle around 10pm, as part of The Complete Works of the Salford Music Festival, a night of wordsmiths with a street appeal. Alongside Words Escape Me will be Meriel Malone, who supported The Fall at the Fest last year, Tony Kinsella, Cayn White, Steve Pottinger and Gordon Zola. There's also a Friday Fiddlers After Hours Jam following the poets.

If you want to waz it up a bit, you can head down to Littleton Road and the Lower Kersal Social Club for another Punkiside night, starring Muttley, Benefit State, Taser Puppets, Benefit State, Better Than Jesus and The Duel.

The Salford Arms also has a top bill tonight featuring rock and soul diva Judith Ude, indie-electro combo Go Native, pop anthem purveyors The Marivaux and Liverpool rockers Joe Symes and the Loving Kind.

The Ashley Brook in Langworthy promises an entertaining line-up starring cover singer Jenny Tyson Berry, the blues based Married In Vegas and the folksy Enigma Falls; while Eccles Community Hall (Echo) hosts the MAPAS Big Band and St Philip's Church is the venue for the Broadway and Beyond spectacular.

There's lots of other stuff going off at The Hope and The White Horse (two stages) on Eccles Old Road, the Deli-Lama and the New Oxford on Bexley Square, the two stages at The Black Lion on Chapel Street.

Meanwhile other gigs are happening at The Park in Monton, The New Inn in Walkden and Wangies in Eccles.

Star date: 19th June 2018

COUNCIL BLOCKS FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ON £4,000 MIPIM TRIP

Salford City Council has refused to answer a Salford Star Freedom of Information request on which private company paid the £4,022 costs for City Mayor Paul Dennett and two staff to go to the South of France for the MIPIM property event.

The Council states that "the commercial interests of the Council outweigh that of the public interest in disclosure". The Salford Star is to appeal the decision.

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
