SOUNDS FROM THE OTHER CITY

In 14 venues around Chapel Street, featuring nearly fifty bands and DJs the Sounds From The Other City festival turns up the cultural volume in Salford this weekend from 3pm until very, very late.

The Salford based Helmets For Men crew are putting on seven bands at The Crescent pub, including the excellent Death To The Strange, Sandbox and new-ish band, Factory Star, put together by sometime Fall guitarist Martin Bramah.

The Salford Arms is the venue for Mind On Fire, featuring a showcase of electronic and rocky outfits, while St Phillips Church hosts a High Voltage event with six live guitary poppy bands. Peel Hall has more laid back folky pop stuff on its Hey! Manchester stage, while Comfortable On A Tightrope at the Kings Arms goes for an indie-pop feel.

Over at The Old Pint Pot, upstairs, Postcards From Manchester `aims to bring the DIY alternative music community uprising together to celebrate all that is great about this city and its music', while downstairs the Wot God Forgot stage merges the loud, the global and the intense.

Two of the most interesting sounding bands are playing Trash-O-Rama at The New Oxford - Wigan two piece Brown Brogues, who make great guitar fuzz and drum noises somewhere in Peter Kay's worst nightmares – and some top videos (click here); and the Manc duo Float Riverer, who wear their punky guts on some no frills frenetic songs. Both bands come on raw and ready, and should be well worth seeing.

Experimental music is on view at the MIE showcase at Sacred Trinity, while Fat Out Til You Pass Out at The Rovers Return has a whole rosta of `inventive' sounds. Manchester promoters Bad Uncle and Hear Here push live bands with accompanying arty visual stuff at the United Reform Church, while Paradox at The Angel mixes poetry and sounds.

Islington Mill has a strange exhibition called 100 Records. On show are a hundred 7" record sleeves by a bloke called Sonny, who designed all these covers for bands that didn't exist and then went out to find musicians to make the actual records. Whatever…

Sounds From The Other City features loads of strange stuff and the idea basically is to buy a wristband for £18, drink all day and stagger from place to place soaking up the atmosphere, sounds and weird sites.

Sounds From The Other City
Sunday May 1st 3pm-late £18
Chapel Street.

Get your wristband for £18 with no booking fee from Islington Mill, Kings Arms, Common or Piccadilly Records. Or online with a booking fee from Skiddle or Quay Tickets.

SIGHTS FROM THE OTHER CITY

To partner the music fest, there's also a two day art thang with events at various venues around Chapel Street. On Saturday 30th April there's a Salford Zine Fair (11am-6pm) and a Royal Tea Café at the Hope United Reform Church. At the Creative Media Centre there's a Creative Bazaar put on by the Pierpoint Consortium, selling everything from original art to second hand books. 

On Sunday 1st May there's a market at the Hope United Reform Church selling hand made stuff and vintage and speciality wares, and both days see art exhibitions – Watercolours by Frank Sargeant at St Philips Church, and a Summer Wayzgoose at Hot Bed Press in Cow Lane.

On the 30th at 2pm and on the 1st at 2pm there's also an architectural walking tour around Chapel Street, starting outside of the Ramada Hotel off Deansgate and finishing at Islington Estate on Chapel Street.

Speaking to the BBC North West Tonight, Sale Sharks owner Simon Orange said that the AJ Bell Stadium, which has had over £24million in public money loans from Salford Council, has now been independently valued at just £6.5million.
