Preview: George the Poet

George the Poet brings his search party to Manchester’s Band on the Wall

It has now been weeks since freshers and the appeal of K cider and a night in Factory is starting to wear thin. If you have reached the point where you actually know the lyrics to Work then maybe you are starting to feel a need for something of a different pace.

Band on the Wall has just the thing. London-based spoken word artist/rapper George the Poet is bringing his Search Party Tour to Manchester.

Accompanying are fellow Londoners, The Compozers, and Manchester’s very own smooth, spoken word artist, B Franklin.

In the same style as Kate Tempest’s new album, the Search Party Tour aims to explore a variety of social issues through George Mpanga’s emotive, intricate and honest wordsmanship.

George the Poet et al. will perform at Band on the Wall on Sunday the 23rd of October.

Tickets are available from Band on the Wall’s ticketline site here at £16.50 (inc. booking fee)
