Kro Old Trafford Boxing Day

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.

Refugees - their stories told in a site cabin in St Anne's Square

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.
