Last Wednesday’s day on the Holt’s had ground to a halt, but perked up briefly as I met Matt after work for a pre gig pint at the rather overlooked Crown & Anchor in the shadow of Cathedral Square.
I’d actually come here in 2015 before a Low gig at the cathedral. Who says I’m not a creature of habit.
The weird handpulls have gone, there’s no Cherry Mild, and the prices seemed rather higher than you’d expect.
Or perhaps that’s just the Crystal Lager (disappointed in you Matt). My Bitter was a tad disappointing (perhaps Matt chose wisely).
But it’s the tables that terrify.
Just think, could gave gone to one of these.
Always great to see Manchester pubs bustling midweek, and not many takers for cans of Punk at a fiver in the gig.
I’ll let Halifax Chris review gigs, all I’ll say is you should really get to see support Divide and Dissolve, which is exactly what happened to my insides as I stood there transfixed.
