Saturday 24 September - programmed by Sister Ray

Sister Ray first opened on Berwick Street in Soho 30 years ago. In that time they’ve became an institution and seen plenty of musical genres come, delight, frustrate annoy and enlighten. That’s what they sell and that’s what they love.

5pm MIGHTY DYNAMITE

Mighty Dynamite are a joyful merging of musical styles. The band are formed from members of indie favourites Mansun and Victoria. Filling venues wherever they go with their sideways look at life, love and escape, giving a voice to the unheard, getting feet dancing and faces smiling, sure to be your new favourite band.

4pm JON KENZIE

Jon Kenzie is a singer-songwriter from Manchester. His solo music provides a fresh take on blues, folk, soul and Americana, sitting somewhere between the troubadour stylings of modern day practitioners such as M. Ward and the earthy edginess of Tom Waits.
