Macy Gray | Sat 18 March | Manchester Academy
Macy began her ‘Stripped Tour’ early this month, we had a chat with her prior and she told us this gig is “going to be high energy”, and as well as some classics like ‘I Try’ she will be playing some brand new material. She plays Academy 2 so it is going to be an intimate and intense show. Last few tickets still available.


Glass Animals | Sat 18 March | Albert Hall
The four oxford dudes are back on the road again, and play a sold out gig at Manchester’s Albert Hall. Their 2014 debut album ‘Zaba’ was a hit with smooth indie electric beats sounding like Alt-J they released a second album last year ‘How to be a Human Being’ with an even more unusual sound to it, they are known for an impressive gig. Get your hands on a ticket, should be a good one.
