Band On The Wall Goes Live-ish

Black Roots slider

During Band On The Wall’s temporary closure due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, the multiple award-winning 200-year-old Manchester venue is digging deep into its archive to pick out some favourite, rare and never-before-seen recordings from gigs gone by.
Every week at 7pm on Friday, Band On The Wall will be streaming a full gig from its archive, broadcast ‘as live’ for you to watch along. These streams won’t be available on-demand, so set your alarms and tune in!

Live-ish launched on Friday, March 27 with a rare screening of Azymuth, recorded in 2020.
The series continues tonight [Friday, April 3] with Horace Andy.

The artist is announced on the Wednesday of each week, two days before the Live-ish stream. Watch Live-ish gigs at

Live-ish streams are free to watch, but these are extremely difficult times for an independent non-profit organisation like Band on the Wall, so any and all donations are welcome and enormously helpful. Donations big or small can also be made via
