The Salford Music Cooperative was born in March this year with the aim of bringing a bit of cultural fair trade to the music scene and to showcase some of our city's ace bands.
Having played a showcase at Sounds From The Other City earlier this month, this party at the King's Arms marks the official launch.
"Our goal is to bring together a membership of people involved in and around the music industry in order to support the development of grass roots music in Salford" the Co-op states "It's a project aimed at making the most of the venues within Salford so that musicians can share experiences and skills and turn the city into a hub for musical performance. The Cooperative is a not-for-profit venture and looks to invest back into the community of Salford by putting on events and developing a vibrant music scene."
From Briggzy's rap to the electronic folk of Death To The Strange to singer songwriter John Herring, the launch should be two top nights. A proper Salford party…
May 30th and 31st 6pm onwards
Bloom St, Salford
£4 advance for both nights (tickets from King's Arms bar) or £5 per night on the door.
