Monké Manchester presents Bohmen w/ Bards + The Ivies + Thalia's Grace

Please note this is an 18+ event

A fully stacked line up of psychedelic, loud, indie and rock music with four bands making waves in their respective cities. For one night only, two Liverpool bands make their debut alongside two rising titans of Manchester.

Characterised by soft vocals, distorted guitar, and heavy drums with a driving bassline, their sound is influenced by artists such as Wolf Alice, Mitski, and Big Thief. The band originally consisted of Lauren (vocals/guitar), Katie (lead guitar), and Gracia (drums), later joined by Reese on bass and supporting vocals.

Pulling influences from all corners of art, literature, music, and life, The Ivies offer a mind-expanding experience. Liverpool-based psychedelic and progressive rock.

Combining thunderous rhythms, sludgy bass, and hypnotic vocals, BARDS are bringing their brand of post-grunge to the Manchester scene. The band is made up of five friends, who combine to considerable effect, offering a raw and unfiltered window into their universe. Following their debut single ‘Lemon Kick’, Bards’ ‘Moonsand’ EP is a real point of progression: fuzzy guitars and punchy bass give way to, lead singer, Abbie’s vocals. Her voice is complemented by Lewis’ harmonies and Chris’ contrasting snarl throughout the EP, further enhancing Bards’ gigantic sound.
