As The Cro Cro Flies on Sunday 27th March 2022

Cro Cro Land's little sister, As the Cro Cro Flies, comes to Manchester for a day of explosive punk, rock and indie bands celebrating female and non-binary musicians. This is an inclusive event. All are welcome 16+

Bands include:


Dream Nails are a punk force to be reckoned with. Founded by feminist activists in 2015, this hotly tipped band of witches mix political rage with contagious pop punk joy, winning hearts (and funds for abortion charities) wherever they go.

Their critically-acclaimed debut album is out now on Alcopop! (UK/World) and Dine Alone Records (North America). Receiving rave four-star reviews from Kerrang!, NME, Clash, DIY, Upset and Dork, the LP was one of Kerrang!’s most highly anticipated underground releases of 2020.


Loose Articles aren't your typical punk band. Living the 9-5 as many of us do, but once it hits beer O’clock, a different animal emerges. ‘Up The Disco’, the band's first release in almost a year saw Loose Articles hit the high notes. Recorded with Theo Verny and premiered by BBC 6 Music's Steve Lamacq (resulting in multiple plays across the station), a limited 7' released on Manchester label Dipped In Gold, lead to the band's inclusion on NME's Hot 100 for 2021. B-Side 'Buses' was released in Feb 2021, again seeing support from BBC 6. On June 25th 2022, the band will support Foo Fighters in their home of Manchester.'


Chemtrails are a 5-piece garage-punk and acid-corroded new-wave band signed by Swedish label PNKSLM Recordings. They have gained a reputation for their prolific DIY output and high-energy shows and songs with cryptic lyrics that center around alienation, love, the human condition, the impending apocalypse and occasionally on Mia Lust’s place in the world as a transgender woman.


Critically-acclaimed debut album, sold out UK shows and BBC introducing faves, Bugeye are dirty guitars, disco beats, sizzling synths and exploding bass riffs that accelerate into the catchiest hooks. With lyrics touching on subjects from the mundanity of modern city life, to global issues such as racism and climate change, tunes come wrapped in a riotous optimism that demands you to dance. Bugeye are signed to Reckless Yes Records.


The solo project from Jemma Freeman, best known as the songwriter and guitarist in Bella Union signed dreamy-psych band Landshapes, is a non-binary drag fronted alt/glam/psych/pop band making waves across the nation.


I, Doris are a “mummycore art-pop foursome”, comprising 3 of LOUD WOMEN’s key team members – Cassie Fox, Lucy Morgan, and Abby Werth– plus a rolling, Spinal Tap-esque conveyor belt of drummers that have included Crack Foxes‘ Louisa Edwards-Knight (the official drummy Doris) in London, the Mekons‘ Jon Langford in Leeds, Party Fear‘s Eilis Frawley in Brighton, and T-Bitch‘s Stevie Ramjet in Newport!Their set is a mix of electro-punk witty-lyric bangers, and covers selected for their originally problematic sexual politics, rewritten with a feminist bent and heaps of humour. + more to be announced.
