Not that long ago, Hideaway Club aside, there was pretty much nothing mod-related in Manchester. These days, the city is crawling with nights offering up the word 'mod', although not all of them are perhaps of the highest quality. I've no idea what Suitable is like – but it is weekly and free.
According to the organisers, it takes place at The Thirsty Scholar (50 New Wakefield Street M1 5NP near Oxford Rd train station) every Saturday night from 8pm until 3am and as we said, free entry.
Playlist is said to be beat, psych, bluebeat, ska, R&B, Motown, northern, mod '79, Trojan '69, two tone, Latin and more. So pretty much every base covered. All spun on original vinyl too. For more details contact Damo on 0161 326 6071 or email [email protected].
