About The Event

8PM show | 7:30 doors

BYOB from Sleepwalker

Back  in 2008 as director at (SCENE) Metrospace in East Lansing, Peter Richards held a  one-night tribute to the musical city of Manchester, UK. Manchester is a  factory town with a rich creative history, in many ways a spiritual  cousin of Lansing, Michigan. Performing that night was Double Saginaw  Familiarity, Middleman, and Richards' own solo acoustic bass project, Stargrazer.

Many will recognize Manchester as the birthplace of recording artists such  as The Smiths, Joy Division, The Hollies, The Stone Roses, Oasis, Thin  Lizzy, The Bee Gees and many, many more musicians. The list is truly  amazing and these bands populate many of our favorite playlists.

Fast-forward  to 2023, we are recapturing the musical magic of that night by invoking  Manchester's famous Haçienda Club at The Robin Theatre in REO Town.  Expect a mix of cover songs, sing alongs, plus a few original tunes that  lend evidence to our enduring love for sister city Manchester.

Performers: Jennifer Toms  (A Rueful Noise, Scary Women) and Nicholas Merz (MK Ultra Culkin, The  Hat Madder, A Rueful Noise), Loren Pudvay (The Hunky Newcomers, The Plurettes), Peter Richards (Stargrazer) and others!
