Apollo Brown & Ugly Heroes

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Apollo Brown is a Detroit hip hop producer, winner of Detroit Red Bull Big Tune Championships. Together Apollo Brown, Verbal Kent and Red Pill are Ugly Heroes.

 

 

 

An Ugly Hero is considered a myth. Growing up, the heroes we saw in cartoons and movies were perfectly chiseled, intelligent, and had senses none of us possess. An Ugly Hero is the everyday blue collar individual that makes the world go ‘round. These are the heroes that work hard all day, everyday to help ensure that the lives around them are taken care of, and do it all without recognition. They wear themselves into the ground and sacrifice vanity for family.

 

Catch them at Band On The Wall for their Manchester debut.

 

Support comes from Unionblak and DJ Jonny Dub (Hoya:Hoya / WHP)

 

State “Black Sheep List” on the door to get a reduced of just £6.00 (normally £12.00 on the night,) limited tickets so first come first served.


Pharoahe Monch LIVE!

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

People of Manchester… this Thursday (13th Feburuary), Band On The Wall proudly present the Hip-Hop legend that is Pharoahe Monch Live in Manchester! Possibly one of the most underrated underground hip-hop artists of our time?

 

 

He first hit international fame with the smash hit ‘Simon Says’ back in 1999  however, because of the illegal use of the “Godzilla Theme Song” as a sample in ‘Simon Says’, the album has ceased to be produced but the smash hit continues to be played around the world over 15 years later! There are more side’s to Pharoahe Monch than his hit from 1999, his last album W.A.R (We Are Renegades) carries some really heavy lyrics over some solid beats reflecting his place at ‘war’ with the music industry and his newest album P.T.S.D (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), tackles the issue of gun violence in America and expresses his frustration on the matter. With his powerful lyrical content and rhythmic flows, Pharoahe Monch has always been considered one of the top MC’s in the game.

 

Support on the night comes from Manchester’s very own Ape Cult and the In The Loop crew.
