This Friday (5th August) we're joined by Tom and Will from Manchester's aA (akoustik Anarkhy) record label and club night.
Formed in 1999 (12 long years ago) the boys' have been on a constant mission to release quality music and put on gigs with bands they love.
They've taken their night all over the back rooms of Manchester and down to London, Brighton and across a number of European cities; notching up over 50 releases on their record label in the process.
Their last two residencies on home turf have been at The Deaf Institute and The Castle where they've hosted many a great night including a Christmas Psych party with Richard Norris (Time & Space Machine), The Ruby Suns, Yellow Moon Band, Fujiya & Miyagi, Speck Mountain, The Phantom Band, The Superimposers, Sleepy Suns, Plank! and their latest signings, Driver Drive Faster.
They've also been involved with several small festivals such as Friends of Mine and The Trip. You can catch some of the bands on their label (and see the boys' DJing) at 'Greetings from the Beacons' 11-14 August. aA will be hosting the 'Outdoor Shed Stage' from 5-11pm on the Saturday night.
It's always a pleasure to have people play at Jam St and this month is especially special. Tom from aA designs all the Eight Six posters and the Bird logo on this site. Fittingly aA at the Star and Garter was our first DJ gig outside of Jam St.
Join us for a pint and some good music this Friday from 8.00. Free entry.
