POPULAR MANCHESTER Review - Katie Shepherd
I’m beginning to think it is impossible to have a disappointing night at Trof Fallowfield. For the fourth time this semester, POPULAR MANCHESTER asked for only two quid at the door for the three band line-up, attendees are basically getting away with night life robbery to hear new music in this chilled, intimate venue. Bands for this month included The Youth Anxiety, Laurence & The Slab Boys, and The Castells with DJ interludes from Club.The.Mammoth's Dan Alani.
Over the last ten weeks Fuse FM's Hattie Pearson has been involved in a project called Manchester Young Creators - teaching kids from the local community radio skills.
The aim was to give the kids an opportunity to explore their creativity, improve their confidence, have fun and do a LIVE radio show!
Shiloh, aged 12 and Conroy, aged 16 from Moss Side worked so hard - with limited time and resource, in fact they only had two hours in the studio practicing before the live show!
Following last week’s announcement that Warehouse Project is staying in Manchester for the 2012 season, Berlin duo Modeselektor returned to Store Street on Friday night for the final UK date of their Monkeytown tour, bringing with them a strong and forward thinking support including a Room 2 takeover from Glaswegian label Numbers.

SPECIAL AWARDS TO BE GIVEN OUT ON THE NIGHT
On Tuesday morning the Foyer of the University of Manchester Students Union was taken over by the girls from Stooshe who performed an acoustic version of their latest single 'Betty Woz Gone.' The girls certainly had passers-by stop in their tracks and with many wanting to know more about these girls I thought I would try to nab them for an interview while still on campus.
For the lovely Stooshe ladies, this was no problem at all.
So tell us a little bit about Stooshe, how did you get together?
