The main act for tonight’s show, The Rocket Summer, sadly had to cancel their performance due to the one and only member Bryce becoming too ill to perform. However, those who are fans of support acts Between The Trees and The Secret Handshake weren’t to walk away disappointed, as they still played… and for free too.

Tennessee pop-punk rockers Paramore have just embarked on their UK RIOT! tour, and decided to bring along their friends New Found Glory and Conditions. After their first show of the tour last night, and their first show at the Manchester Apollo venue, they bring along UK band Kids In Glass Houses to spice the line-up further. An effective recipe for a riot then?

The Manchester G-Mex has recently been re-named to Manchester Central (a sensible name with it being within the center of the city), and since then the venue has began hosting musical concerts, one of which is tonight’s act from London – Bloc Party.

Relentless touring is what has been 2007 for Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon, and this is their third UK headlining tour this year. But let’s not forget to mention the band have also had their first tours in both Europe and the US in the preceeding months too. Tonight’s venue is Manchester Academy 3, a small-ish venue that’s perfect for the boy’s style.

LIVE: Silverstein @ Academy 3, Manchester (26/11/2007)

Venue: Academy 3, Manchester

A band like Silverstein are one that aren’t regular visitors to the UK, and only pop around perhaps once a year, twice if you’re lucky. Upon the release of their latest full-length album ‘Arrivals & Departures’ they return to Europe for a long-awaited tour. The question is: was it worth the wait? On November 26th 2007 they arrive to give Manchester a shot with their post-hardcore music, accompanied with two support acts, who have never even entered the UK with band business.

A collection of a few local bands is more often than not present on Friday’s, for a night of rock at the Winnington Rec in Northwich. This regular event is what is known as Banned! Night, and with one of the most popular bands in the area playing tonight, Skinless Finger, there should be at least one appearance of sparks in the atmosphere.

It’s another Friday night in Northwich, and that means another Banned! gig at Winnington Rec. Tonight two of the three bands on show are fronted by female vocalists, some people may be wondering if this will change anything in the atmosphere.

LIVE: Banned! Night @ Winnington Rec, Northwich (09/06/2007)

Headliners: Chaos Undivided
Support: Secrets Of The Dead, The Roughneck Riot

Rating:

Winnington Rec, a venue known locally for its weekend showing of local unsigned bands. Kids gather from around the local areas of Northwich, Winsford, Crewe and more to come and see acts like those on tonight.

The first band up is Secrets Of The Dead (***), the first metal band of the night. Their set is full of rampaging riffs, and shrieking vocals – they’re clearly not for the light hearted. The kids seem to be getting into it, with a group of about 10 of them swinging their arms and getting involved in the night’s first mosh pit. With a set of just about half an hour, give or take a few minutes, Secrets Of The Dead are done, leaving the crowd pumped up and ready for the next act on tonight’s bill.
