Music Round-up (19th September to 3rd October)

Thursday 2nd October – Kaki King
To give you an idea of just how formidable this Georgia-born guitar virtuoso is, Rolling Stone bestowed her the title of ‘Guitar God’ back in 2006 - making her the first ever female to make the list in the history of the publication! A must see for all guitar-loving geeks!
Details: Night & Day, Oldham St, Central Manchester
8pm, £10 adv (excluding fees)

Thursday 2nd & 3rd October – The Ting Tings
Dig out your whistles, aviators and neon legwarmers, because the former Salford-based twosome are returning to Mancland for this highly-charged two-date extravaganza. The electro-pop poppets will be performing tracks from their number one début album, We Started Nothing which, although far from perfect, contains three of the years best singles. Ker-fucking-ching.
Details: Academy 1, Oxford Road, Central Manchester
7.30pm, £13.50 adv (excluding fees)
