Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – Manchester Cathedral // 19th July 2012

Manchester Cathedral is truly an awe inspiring music venue. In the heart of Manchester in a room just made for live music, it is increasingly becoming a quirky venue on the tour circuit. This week it hosts the wonderful Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros who’s sound, incidentally, seems to be crafted for this type of space! So if you are a fan of the band, quirky venues, live music or just a night like no other, then this is for you.
