The Deaf Intsitute music hall is the best and hippest music venue in Manchester. But Manchester has lots of great places to catch live music. From the sweaty basement of The Roadhouse, to the boho Night & Day or the cool The Castle, for new and upcoming bands. There are great club nights at Warehouse Project and Band on the Wall. The Apollo and Academies host more established acts.
One of my favorite songs growing up, and they tore the Apollo's roof clean off with this appearance. When Sinbad was your hype man, you had to know you'd arrived! A band years too far ahead of their time, and Vernon. DAMN.
