Well, that goes without saying really, we live here after all.
It’s a wonderful, friendly little phrase which invites you in with this lovely feeling of warmth and belonging.
Quite a coincidence really as there’s a regular monthly club night of the same name that engenders precisely the same kind of feelings.
For me, This City Is Ours is one of Manchester’s hidden musical gems. Small, yes, but bright enough with talent, aesthetics and a wonderful sense of the not quite normal that it can sometimes outshine the sun with all of it’s twinkly goodness.
Run by a collection of local artists, this night draws on the talent of the electronic underground in Manchester and across the UK (and occasionally the world) bringing a wide selection of wonderfully glitchy, different electronica to your ears. I’ve heard influences from mid 90’s ambience to post-dubstep to glitch to breakcore to stuff that I wouldn’t dare categorise. All of it, however, has been of a quality that you don’t often find in one place, let alone on a single night. And all done without the slightest hint of pretentiousness.
Anyhow, suffice to say, it’s well worth seeking out if you like your electronics. Oh, and they seem to have a record label too, you might want to check that out I reckon.
They also have a wonderful VJ who’s bonkers projections turn the drabbest of spaces into their own special brand of psychedelics, just see the photos below…
