Autumn Gigs in Manchester and Salford

This is a list of gigs that I consider to be worth listening to, happening in the city of Manchester where the council does it's best to harrass venues for making a noise and then hypes it as Britain's most vibrant music metropolis. They'd be better off clearing up all the discarded aluminium that corporations wasted on packaging toxic sugar drinks as aluminium will soon run out unless an asteroid made of the metal hits the planet!
