so I’m sure lots of you know about Carefully Planned and the ace festivals they have put on in Manchester in recent years? always the best atmosphere with loads of great independent, genuinely underground bands, given a collective platform to make new fans and friends.
sadly, this is all coming to an end. there are lots of reasons, but mostly it’s financial. I’m sure most of you will be aware of how hard it is to put on gigs without falling into debt, actually being able to make enough to pay bands, etc.
however, it’s not going out without one last one-dayer, once again in Manchester’s Northern Quarter on Saturday 21st October. I’ll just c+p Matthew’s post at this point:
"Right; here we go. Some ‘news’.
I must admit, it felt almost inevitable that this was about to be an announcement of cancellation. I have been having a bit of a ridiculous time lately, and I started to believe there was no way I was going to be able to pull this off. However, as they say all too often in show-business, THE SHOW MUST GO ON.
Full line-up, venue splits and set times will be revealed on Monday, and tickets will go on-sale at a tenner each. They will be limited, and it’ll cost like £15 [or something like that] on the door. So don’t delay. Set yourself some kind of alarm or reminder.
Do me favour would you? Do a little something to help spread the word… Share a link. Invite people to the event page. Write a piece on yr blog. Comment on the event page discussion. Whatever. It doesn’t matter if you don’t, but it does matter if you do. It’s going to be a really good do. Get all your friends a long. They will thank you for it.
I hope you’re all well, and happy.
Love from Matthew x"
I’ll update when Matthew updates on Monday, but I thought I’d do my bit to get the word out. it’d be great if this last one could be a really big success. so… yeah. heads up.
