On Friday night I went to Fuel in Withington to see KITS play a gig and to meet Emily of Matter of Sound.
I’ve been following Emily’s YouTube channel for a couple of years now because I almost did some social media stuff for them when they first started up, but didn’t have the time. It’ll be possible now that I’m in Manchester though!
Fuel is a very cute little place. The upstairs bit is where the gig was held, and downstairs is where food and drink are served. (Pro tip: if you ever come here and are a bit cold, sit directly opposite the big mirror pictured above against the wall – there’s a radiator there).
Now onto to Emily and Matter of Sound. The channel is music focussed but I think you’d find it interesting even if you’re not that clued up on music. Below are some of my favourite videos:
I’ve said this before quite recently but now that I’m past the first six month mark I feel like I’m becoming properly ‘settled’ here in Manchester. The same happened in Melbourne and in Sheffield. In Melbourne I didn’t want to count down to the second six month mark because that meant it was time to go home, and in Sheffield I didn’t even want to stay for another six whole months! I don’t know how long I’ll be in Manchester for but I’m sure it’ll be much longer than one year, it’s about time I stayed in one place for a bit.
