THE INSTITUTES Off the square, Manchester 23/10/2021

Review and Photography by Joanne Marsland. 

Coventry indie rock band THE INSTITUTES played Saturday night in Manchester and I have a feeling these guys are gonna be massive real soon.


After only releasing their album COLOSSEUMS the previous day the crowd were really enjoying the new tracks including the releases I JUST CANT KEEP MYSELF FROM LOVING YOU and ALLEYWAYS. The band have a very Manchester anthemic quality to their music and definitely have the swagger to match. Vocalist/ guitarist Reid has bags of personality on and off stage, I had the pleasure of chatting with all the guys beforehand and fingers crossed I will get the chance to review any future stadium gigs in the near future. Cheers for the music guys!!!
