Deadbolt Manchester - 11th Birthday - Red Cardinal Music

Deadbolt is celebrating its eleventh birthday at The Bread Shed

Tāybād Alternative party Deadbolt is celebrating their eleventh birthday on Saturday April 2nd in Manchester at the venue where it all began – The Bread Shed (then known as The Zoo).

buy Lyrica medicine Deadbolt is known in Manchester and Liverpool as a chaotic clubnight where people can enjoy a party vibe a little different from the traditional clubbing experiences. Deadbolt creates a house party atmosphere with live performances, interactive games and giveaways – and all of this is to a mix of emo, metal, rock, pop punk and alternative anthems.

Even though Deadbolt currently operates in Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield and Nottingham, Deadbolt has been involved with events in other cities including London, Edinburgh, Bangor, Dublin, Bristol, York, and Charlotte (North Carolina, USA). They have seen guest appearances from many acts within the alternative scene including Funeral For A Friend, Benji Webbe (Skindred), Tek-One and Hot Milk amongst many others.

The birthday party will once again feature live music from a varied selection of the very best up and coming acts the UK has to offer, followed by a huge clubnight with guest DJ sets and giveaways all night from several of the best independent brands in the alternative scene.

The event kicks off at 6:30pm, with live performances from Downcast, Where Oceans Burn, Death & Taxes, Hometruths, Aleya and A Lost Cause.

The huge clubnight will immediately follow the live show, with guest DJs and Deadbolt favourites Bury Tomorrow, the return of Sean Smith and a takeover from Skull & Bones Boys Club clothing. They will be joined by normal Deadbolt residents LJC, Bekkiness and Ronnie B.

Former Manchester rock night staple Rock Kitchen will once again be resurrected for a reunion set playing a selection of favourites from the much-loved Saturday tradition.

In true Deadbolt spirit, brands who have worked with the night will also be showcased with stalls scattered over the venue supporting the independent brands that make the alternative scene what it is. Companies such as Unusual Horror, Catch Pro Wrestling, Main Events, Good Omens Tattoo, Blasphemy Cult and Kadupuluk will have a presence on the night.

Liam Connolly, founder and director of Deadbolt said : “It’s going to be so much fun for everyone being back in the room where we started. Since then they’ve had so much investment into the production side so we’re hoping to put on a really good show for the loyal crowd as well as newcomers alike. We’re excited to welcome back Deadbolt legends Bury Tomorrow and SABBC for this birthday, as we’ve been asked to get them back so many times over the past few years.”

He added : “I wanted to really support the independent brands we’ve worked with and those from the local area, we’ve always had that mindset from day one and I feel that has always separated us from the same old, same old nights and the endless stream of hollow nostalgia nights. We’ve always wanted to give people more than the same songs, a dance floor and a bar. A night out can always be more than that. I’m confident this birthday will be an absolute blast, we certainly have the bill for it!”

Tickets for this event are available via the Red Cardinal Music website, See Tickets, Skiddle, Fatsoma, Ticketweb and Ticketline. To find out more, visit the Deadbolt’s social media pages below.

Deadbolt Manchester - End Of Year Bash 2021 - Red Cardinal Music

Deadbolt are throwing an End Of Year Bash to see out 2021

After half a year of clubs being closed, Deadbolt returned after a 16 month lockdown break on July 30th for the first of two 10th birthday specials. The rest of the year saw the likes of Tasmin Taylor, Sean Smith, Jon Mahon, Unusual Horror, Grimm Oddities, Unusual Horror and Fireball join the festivities but it’s not over just yet. The year will close on December 4th at Night People in Manchester with The End Of Year Bash.

Deadbolt regular Sean Smith (Sappenin’ Podcast, Raiders and ex-The Blackout) will once again take the decks in the main room alongside LJC, Bekkiness and Ron Blanco. 

Room 2 sees the return of the baby of the RCM family, Catalyst – the music policy is pure nostalgia with an aim to remind people of the music that introduced them to the alternative scene. A warm hug from a golden time. 

Classic Deadbolt games and competitions will be taking place all night, with winners having the chance to win entry to every Deadbolt event in 2022 in any city amongst other surprises. 

Between 12am and 1am the main room will host a MySpace Power Hour, meaning it’ll be nothing but music from the era that fashion forgot – the mid / late 2000 scene phase. Since the first ever Deadbolt MySpace Party in 2011, the night has never forgotten where it came from. Expect to hear bands such as Metro Station, Cute Is What We Aim For, My Chemical Romance, From First To Last and Brokencyde amongst other guilty pleasures. 

“It’s certainly been a strange year, until Spring we didn’t even know if we’d ever get the chance to throw another party!” said Deadbolt founder and DJ Liam Connolly, “It felt so good to come back, and it’s been so much fun since then. We’re honoured to bring the very best in Alt DJs to our nights wherever they are, it’s a real pleasure. We plan on ending this unusual year on a real high!”
