Review of Peaness single launch live at Soup Kitchen
Peaness are my favourite new band. They have songs that invade your heart and stay forever. The gig was fab. Lovely vibe and easy rapport between the band and the audience.
Soup Kitchen is an excellent no frills small venue right in the centre of Manchester. Been numerous times and always check what's on there.
Had an ace night. Big love to Peaness. 💜

Review of Soup Kitchen and Banana Hill present King Ayisoba
Amazing music, ace night !!
Review of Kiss Me Again 1st Birthday w/ Hesska & John Loveless
The whole night was amazing. The atmosphere in the club is super friendly and relaxed. The DJs were absolute pros and played the decks with an exquisite fluancy. They have no need for fixed sets, just a sense of oneness with the crowd. Hesska (guest DJ) was off this world amazing. Whilst its a mainly LGBT crowd there were also some hillariously and devastatingly straight boys who fitted right in when they took their tops off...
Its been going for 1 year now, long may it continue it.
Review of Doodle presents Nebraska Live and Sameed
Great night. Top music. Lovely people.
Review of Kiss Me Again #11 w/ Lakuti & JD Bevan
Practically perfect in every way. Residents and guests always smash it, lovely crowd and big, chunky soundsystem. Hot guys too :)
Review of Meat Free w/ Markus Suckut - Fundraiser for MCR Attack
Just in reply to Oskar's comment - sorry that you weren't really feeling the party. Of course we felt the vibe was a little flat too (which is pretty unusual for a MF party) however, we can only attribute this to the awful event hat happened last week in Manchester.
Also with regards to promotion, we didn't feel it was ethical to overly promote at a time when peoples minds were with the victims of the attack. I hope this doesn't put you off coming to another MF party, would like to see you here again, MF x
It was okay but I think that this party could be promoted better than it was. Also, an atmosphere was a bit flat.

Review of Follakzoid live at Soup Kitchen
The Soup Kitchen is a real throw back to venues of the '80s & they have spared no expense to make the basement venue as luscious & comfortable as possible.
Only joking - The Soup Kitchen is the scuzziest venue in Manchester. Concrete walls with big dents in it, damp naked brick work & cracked peeling paint here and there and there and there......................
It's as though the owners had just set a gig up on the spur of the moment and never changed anything since - bit like a squat. So, dig a load of clothes out of your wash bag & put 'em back on or put your decorating clothes on.
If you know Year of the Horse by Neil Young - at the start somebody shouts "They all sound the same" & he replies "It's all one song".
That applies to Follakzoid - apart from the "song" because they don't do songs. But Brian Eno-like ambience it ain't. They play a three 20 minute sonic groove set & could have just played for an hour non-stop as there was very little difference between any of the three "pieces".
I made a point of listening the drums & bass as there was some quite interesting stuff going on. But the guitarist spent most of his time either bent down fiddling with the effects or waving his arms around in ravey-gravey style. When he did play, he scuttled across the strings & then hit a multitude of effects pedals. There wasn't even a semblance of a riff or tune played. All they need is an arranger to work on those single note "songs" & they'll be huge. The idea is great but the reality is not so.

Review of The Comet Is Coming
After seeing Sons of Kemet at WOMAD last year I knew this would be something special.
They didn't disappoint.
Great sound system and all 3 on stage were on fire. Surprised King Shabaka didn't need an oxygen tent afterwards.
Superb gig. Can't wait til the next one!!
Amazing absolutely smashed it had the place rocking
The Comet Is Coming were truely captivating and a sonic force to be reckoned with.
10/10, will definitely see these guys again!
Comet is coming is an amazing band, a true delight to watch and hear. Ata tak was too loud, I think there was something wrong with the sound?! Soup Kitchen never fails to put on a great gig.

Review of The Make Believe Ballroom with DJ Stingray & Herron
It was a great night! The SK's sound system seems to be even better. DJ Stingray is one of the few DJs nowadays that still reflects what's Techno / Electro is about.

Review of Transmission Funk presents Chaos In The CBD (All Night Long)
Have wanted to see Chaos for a long time now and as a student in Sheffield, this was very easy for me to access, especially at a venue I had heard a lot about. The music was a lot more heavier than their tunes/anticipated but proved how versatile and skilled the brothers are. Would love to see Chaos again and will inevitably return to the Soup Kitchen.
Review of Sam Craighan/Charlotte Cannon_Plus_Support
Some great music, Sam Craighan put on a fantastic headline show with some wonderfully crafted songs and dance grooves all round. The main support Charlotte Cannon provided captivating music and performance. The venue was good though the drink prices rather high! Would highly suggest seeing either of these acts around Manchester if possible!
All bands very enjoyable, a great night. Three Mile Island were my personal favourites
Really great night!
Great venue, great music will definitely be back
Angela Smurthwaite Was Pybus
A great night watching and listening to some amazing talented musicians. Fantastic guitar music and a very polished performance. Watch out world Sam Craighan is coming to get you!
