Now that evening activities have become strictly limited to heated, indoor venues as the winter months creep in, if you haven’t already, take a trip downstairs to the Ruby Lounge, situated on High Street on the corner of the Northern Quarter.

Also boasting a host of different clubnights such as newly-launched ‘Damaged Goods’ and the long-established ‘Guilty Pleasures’, The Ruby Lounge is one of Manchester’s most important New Music venues.  The coming months boast an eclectic mix of genre-spanning programming. With beautiful country music from the hotly tipped Kathleen Edwards, a sprinkling of hip-hop from uber-cool Das Rascist, and hard-to-define-jingly-jangly-beautiful-electro-y sounds a la Little Dragon.

Tickets can be purchased via:

SEE TICKETS: 0870 264 3333

Over the counter at Piccadilly Records, Oldham St, and occasionally in person on the night, but will cost more in most cases. Plus, with a bill like this it’s safest to bag your ticket in advance – I’m still getting over the fact that my girl crush Lana Del Rey is sadly sold out.
