Sounds From The Other City

Comfortable On A Tightrope x Murmur

fivefourstudio loft

Comfortable on a TightropePutting on some of the most memorable Manchester gigs of the past 14 years, Comfortable on a Tightrope thrive on the lo-fi, the fuzzy and the idiosyncratic.

With a list of past conquests that includes such off-kilter luminaries as Lexie Mountain Boys, Molly Nilsson, The Rebel, Sacred Paws, Veronica Falls, Sonny & The Sunsets, Volunteers Park , Ariel Pink, Julia Holter and Thee Oh Sees, their only criteria is that they love the music. Not simply satisfied with booking underground sensations, they’ve also moved over to releasing records, cassettes and books under their own imprint.

Murmur is a new reading series with a focus on poetry, experimental writing and performance, normally taking place at Common – partnering with Comfortable on a Tightrope this year they will together curate the stage at the fivefourstudios loft.
