Kro OT is gathering pace. UTD have won every single game since we opened for the UTD v Spurs game. Approvals now in for 4pm til 8pm for the Hull semi on Tuesday night and for the mother of all battles next Sunday v Liverpool.
Opening hours are 12noon til 8pm again for your pre/post UTD v Sunderland match drinking/entertainment in our abandoned warehouse by Old Trafford Metrolink Station at 1 Warwick Road South. Jay Ellis will be in DJ action and Jack Mahoney in live action.
Jack Mahoney was born with a plastic spoonful of Calpol in his mouth. By his thirteenth birthday he had mastered the wild guitar styling's of Bert Jansch and discovered a taste for White Lightning. Whilst those with weaker palates might dismiss this beverage as a drink fit for a tramp, its name has symbolic meaning - a nom de guerre that perfectly encapsulates Mahoney's musical delivery, his sexual appendage and his sallow, off-milk complexion. Coincidence? Let's look at the evidence.
His voice evokes the balladeers of yesteryear - Paul Robeson, Luke Kelly, Johnny Mathis...and his devilish good looks have been known to send housewives running to the bathroom, to flush away their vomit soaked Prozac and question everything they've ever believed in. His guitar playing is the sound of the solitary, wizened old man, brooding in the vault at last orders. Bring your umbrella's and prepare to be electrified. Jack 'White Lightning'Mahoney is about to take to the stage.
Our new venue collaboration with Kro went v well indeed yesterday. Pop up application in for the UTD games on Boxing Day and New Years Eve. Big thanks to all staff, DJ Jay Ellis, Prose and the cool day one punters✊🏻

There's nothing us Brits like more than a Fightback, let's make sure we win this one✊🏻
Someone's had a great idea and plonked a site cabin in St Anne's Square and inside are posters telling the stories of a handful of refugees. Since seeing the excellent Beatbox lad from Damascus (oldest city on the planet) on Market Street in a skeleton tracksuit I've thought wow, must be some amazing stories out there. Tiz part of @JOURNEYSFEST get yourself involved
What a night, The Enemy's last ever gig, Tom got engaged, the home town crowd went mental. Orphan Boy and The Ends were invited to be a part of this great scene as The Enemy supported the underdog til the end. Long Live The Enemy✊🏻
Our two favourite new bands are Pink Stink and Shaking Chains. Both in action at the Deaf Institute all Dayer yesterday.
The Enemy stick to their unsigned band supporting ways til the end. The support they've given Orphan Boy has been immense. Go see OB supporting them at The Ritz Manchester in 7th September. Long Live The Enemy✊🏻
