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.
