Abandon is a live music and alternative club night showcasing music in some of the most obscure places in and around the city of Manchester. Next event is for our big end of summer bash at First Chop Brewing Arm; a crazy and unique brewery venue operating out of a railway arch in sunny Salford.

Food, acoustic acts, bands and DJs spinning the likes of indie, rock n roll, psychedelia and more from 5pm till 1am, all in celebration of live music, Manchester talent, strange spaces and the end of summer. From sunshine fueled acoustic guitars to full on noisy, rock n roll bands, our Bands in a Brewery promises to be our maddest party yet!
