Get ready for an all-day party with the best emerging indie bands from Manchester and across the country performing across two floors at the Deaf Institute.  Stay Fresh is coming to The Deaf Institute on 24 September.  The hefty line-up features 8 bands.

Leeds’ Cowtown are a phenomenal three-piece with a dynamically brash over-stimulated indie rock sound. They’ll be topping the bill and celebrating the recent release of their new album Paranormal Romance.

Catholic Action are one of Glasgow’s best new bands, with a sinister glam sound centring around the quirky vocal and guitar talent of Chris McCrory. Their first release came out on Luv Luv Lu, home to Splash, Spector, and Only Real.

Ethan & The Reformation are Manchester’s newest psych/rock band, whose debut single Hollandia was recorded at Vibe Studios and mastered by Pete Maher (The Rolling Stones, U2, Noel Gallagher).

There’s also music from Manchester’s Shaking Chains, who bring indelibly catchy tunes that turn into instant earworms.  Organisers apparently took just one listen to Bumper Sticker Patriot, and had to get them on the bill.

The phallically named Peaness are another act who’ll grab your attention. They just recently released a double-A 7” I’m Not Your Problem/Fortune Favours The Bold. Also, don’t miss one of Manchester’s newest bands, Kyotoya, Francis Lung with a live band, and the mysterious Liverpool act Pink Kink. Get tickets now!

Tickets for Stay Fresh cost just £6, and there’ll be some free drinks in the mix too!
