THE SLOW READERS CLUB: LIVE AT THE APOLLO | Album Review

REVIEWS

The Slow Readers Club are an electronic indie rock band from Manchester. They currently have three studio albums, and on Friday they released a brand new live album: Live At 02 Apollo Manchester. This gig was very special to The Slow Readers Club, Manchester is their hometown and The Apollo is the 2nd largest music-based venue in the city. The venue itself contains space for up to 3,500 people and it was completely sold out. Seeing as the band had only recently released their third album, selling out a venue of this capacity was a huge achievement. For a Manchester-based band to have such a wide following, stretching from America to the UK and all the way to Eastern Asia, and in such a small amount of years, from being nearly unheard of to filling out The O2 Apollo, is something that most bands could only dream of.
