Mother of Six support Manchester’s finest
It’s quite a big weekend for the Tiv this week as visiting Buckley will be Manchester’s Twisted Wheel. It’s their first headline tour of 2010 having supported the Modfather Paul Weller and Oasis last year, it places them in prime position for an onslaught on the UK.
Their music mines the same affluent seam as some of the greatest bands to emerge from the UK – The Jam, The Who, The Clash et al. With their lyrics, they address the same themes as their geographical forefathers The Smiths. As they conveyed their designs of northern street life and general Thatcherite despair, Twisted Wheel now feel it’s their time to reflect on the equivalent matters in today’s society.
What’s ultimately good about this show is that instead of bringing a lacklustre tour support along with them, Twisted Wheel are allowing two local support acts to play. Picked from our very own rich seam of local talent to perform are Wrexham’s Mother of Six (following The Roseville Band having to pull out due to illness) and Mold’s The Lupin Thieves. It’s a 14+ gig, with doors at 7pm and tickets are £7.50 or £9.50 on the door.
Staying with The Tiv, on Friday night they have their indie night with Reign, So Called Saviour, The Bright Young People and headliners The Hutts from Liverpool. It’s £3 entry before 9:30pm and £5 thereafter, doors are 8pm.
