Salford's Islington Mill, is the place to party, a place where
you can enjoy upcoming and established acts alike, possibly in the
company of a Ting Ting or two. This feisty cotton mill turned arts
venue has got creative with its righteous indignation towards the
government's slash-happy budgeting and is playing host to a series
of nights appropriately titled 'Off With Their Heads'.
Having previously encouraged revellers to don oversized
papier-mâché heads and get up close with the likes of Austra or
celebrate the royal wedding in the Mill's own chaotic and anarchic
fashion (which FYI, also saw the birth of the world's longest
carrier bag-wedding train), Off With Their Heads are gearing up for
their most impressive offering yet, as this Wednesday (8
June) they present Brooklyn based trio MEN.
As promoter Riv Burns points out: in these dark times we need to
harness our inner hedonists and party more seriously than ever
before, not least to flip a middle finger to the those with the
purse strings. And what better Shaman than punk-spirited,
moustachioed JD Samson, previously of Le Tigre?
With support from Ottowa-born Bonjay and the delightful
pop-covers house band, Organ Freeman, MEN make their only
Manchester appearance this year, so collar this opportunity to get
intimate with them at one of the coolest new nights on the
