Mind on Fire Halloween Weekend!

FRIDAY////
On Friday the Neighbourhood crew is back in the Nook with bags full of the finest hip hop and reggae on wax.

SATURDAY////
Saturday sees MOF residents Chartist and Zoir at Argyles for what is soon to become a regular weekly jam – more info on that very soon – We may even have a couple of special guests this week too. So come down dressed to impress and afterwards we can all pile down to the roadhouse for Hoya:Hoya’s label launch formal party.

SUNDAY////
And then on Halloween, the last sunday of the month… you know what time it is. The Mind on Fire Messy Monthly Mashup at The Nook. Always a lively one and im sure this month will be no different. As with all the Red Stripe Sunday Sessions there will be £2.50 pints. The Nook always makes an effort for Halloween so make sure you do… dress to unimpress!

NEDRY in Manchester tonight!

Tonight we have a secret (well not so secret anymore) show with the fantastic Nedry at The Nook in Chorlton. A rare chance to catch them in such an intimate small venue, it really is not to be missed. Championed by the Guardian and the BBC and fresh from touring Europe, come and check out the London 3 piece and their post dubtep stylings. With support from Grave Architecture, Nimbus and MOF DJs, and all for free.
