LIVE: Vans “Off The Wall” Music Night @ Academy 3/Club Academy, Manchester (23/10/2010)

MySpace: None available

Rating:

Vans have always been well loved and known for their quality in shoes and other apparel, but also for the hosting of great music events and festivals. Obviously the Warped Tour in the US, the biggest and most successful touring punk festival in the country, is the brand’s biggest and most reknowned achievement in the entertainment field, but every now and then they do a little thing here and there on UK shores. 2010 brings the Vans “Off The Wall” Music Night to Manchester at their student union Academy, a night spread across two rooms/stages of some of today’s best up and coming acts, all that could be described as punk, some very loosely and others straight-up. With 5 acts on each stage and therefore 10 different bands in total over 5 hours, it’s nowhere near as huge or extravagant as a Warped Tour, but with great acts on offer there’s still no need to complain.
