Made in Mann presents Manx Punx

Friday 29 October in Entertainment

Event date: Saturday 20 November 2021 at the Villa Marina Prom Suite

This November VillaGaiety are delighted to welcome the Manx Punx to Villa Marina’s Prom Suite, the eighth band to perform as part of our Made in Mann series!

Following the successful introduction of the series in 2020 that saw approx. 600 people attend four separate gigs. Made in Mann gives local Manx bands the platform to showcase their talents by playing in the Island’s largest entertainment venue and illustrates the enormous amount of Manx music talent.

Manx Punx are a DIY collective that set out to bring Punk Rock back to the island. Headliners for this gig are as follows.

Half Naked Headline, a Punk/Queercore band who play songs about homelessness, mental health, feminism, politics, and LGBTQ+ issues.

Punk thrashers Swarf Damage are a bunch of hairy, grumpy old metalheads. Those who've heard us won't be surprised to learn we're fans of old school punk and thrash so decided to mix them together with some lyrics about serial killers thrown in.

The Ballaghs a folk-punk group born back in 2007. Turning Manx folk tunes into stompy, raucous songs. They were the first Manx band to play at Glastonbury in 2010 and earlier this year released their first album Entitled ’Another Broken String,’ it features 10 original tracks that eager fans of the group will recognise as setlist staples.

This is a free event, no tickets are required but capacity is limited to 250.

Doors open: 7:30pm

Age restriction: 16+

Kindly supported by the Isle of Man Arts Council.
