As the cold winter really begins to set in, we went to Stoke-on-Trent to see my Blackpool counterparts Boston Manor. Support came from Modern Error and Gender Roles.
The Sugarmill was now ready for the centrepiece of the evening…
The crowd go mad from the off, as crowdsurfers come flying in not long after the first line of the first song, their latest single ‘Liquid’. In a set largely dominated by songs off their latest full-length, Welcome To The Neighbourhood, there is room for some older gems, as Lead Feet, Burn You Up and Laika from their 2016 release, Be Nothing are featured. On this performance, Boston Manor look in great stead ahead of their first ever headline tour across the Atlantic, beginning this week in (coincidentally!) Boston.
