  1. I also recommend Manchester Roadhouse.
    It's basically a basement with a stage - it's fantastic.
    I went to see William Control there last year and I'm going to see Aiden there in June.
    Apparently Elbow played their first show there and it's pretty cheap for tickets.
    I think you should check it out :)
