WITH Sounds of the City’s sum­mer gig se­ries be­hind us and most bands busy on the fes­ti­val cir­cuit, Manch­ester’s gig cal­en­dar is a lit­tle bit qui­eter than it nor­mally is.

But this city’s mu­sic scene never sleeps for long and there’s a whole load of new shows to look for­ward to, with tick­ets now on sale.

From Gold­frapp’s new tour to the lat­est Ware­house Project sea­son, here’s what you need to get your credit cards out for. Gold­frapp Novem­ber 3 – Manch­ester Academy 1

Gold­frapp will play at Manch­ester Academy later this year as part of the ac­claimed duo’s 2017 world tour. The per­for­mance is part of the eight-date UK leg for the elec­tronic band to pro­mote their lat­est al­bum Sil­ver Eye. Their first al­bum in four years, the an­tic­i­pated re­lease came out in March and in­cludes the sin­gles Any­more and Sys­temagic. The Ware­house Project Septem­ber to Jan­uary – Store Street

Manch­ester club­bing in­sti­tu­tion The Ware­house Project re­turns for an­other 12 weeks of par­ty­ing at Store Street from Septem­ber. High­lights in­clude two nights head­lined by Ra­dio 1 DJ An­nie Mac, who will be joined by an as­sort­ment of artists in­clud­ing J Hus, My Nu Leng and Red­light on Oc­to­ber 6 and Dusky, Tiga and Gerd Jan­son on Oc­to­ber 7. Garage’s come­back king Craig David will also present his TS5 show at the club on Novem­ber 4, joined by names in­clud­ing Dave Rodi­gan, Mis­ta­jam and Big Narstie. Jamie xx and friends will also host a spe­cial all-day event on Novem­ber 11, with the full de­tails to be re­vealed soon.

Cult fuzz-rock­ers Di­nosaur Jr re­turn to Manch­ester af­ter last year’s Al­bert Hall show to play not one but THREE in­ti­mate gigs at Go­rilla. Al­though never quite reach­ing the heights of Pix­ies and Nir­vana, the Mas­sachusetts three­piece were hugely in­flu­en­tial on the al­ter­na­tive rock scene of the 1990s. Af­ter re­form­ing in 2005 they’ve pro­duced four suc­cess­ful al­bums in­clud­ing last year’s Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not. Der­mot Kennedy Oc­to­ber 2 – Deaf In­sti­tute

If you’re a fan of Ben Howard or Bon Iver then you’ll want to put Der­mot Kennedy on your ‘ones to watch’ list. The grav­el­lyvoiced folk singer­song­writer from Dublin em­barks on his big­gest Euro­pean head­line tour to date this au­tumn in­clud­ing a date at Manch­ester’s Deaf In­sti­tute. The tour fol­lows a busy spring and sum­mer that in­cluded sold-out shows in Lon­don, Dublin, NYC and Los An­ge­les, as well as his US fes­ti­val de­but at Bon­na­roo.

Sälen Oc­to­ber 17 – Gul­liv­ers

Mak­ing ‘straight talk­ing, slightly to the left pop mu­sic from bed­rooms in East Lon­don’, syn­th­pop trio Sälen are one of this year’s most hotly-tipped new acts. They in­tro­duced them­selves last year with the straight-talk­ing IILWMBF (I’m In Love With My Best Friend); Diseasey, which topped Spo­tify UK’s Vi­ral 50 chart; the ac­claimed The Drwg; and ur­ban dic­tio­nary favourite Cop­per Kiss. Al­ready in 2017 they’ve dropped the ac­claimed, bit­ter­sweet Heart­break Diet and Pretty, Fake, as well as sell­ing out head­line shows at Lon­don’s Kamio and Elec­trow­erkz and ap­pear­ing at fes­ti­vals in­clud­ing Love­box, The Great Es­cape and Park­life. Now they’re head­ing out on a UK tour kick­ing off here in Manch­ester with an in­ti­mate show at North­ern Quar­ter pub Gul­liver’s.
