Jazz festival in the rain

There are two free outdoor music festivals on in manchester today. One’s over by Urbis, an indie band affair that was asked to stop for half an hour so it didn’t spoil a wedding, and the jazz festival on Albert Square.
I left the indie festival when I realised most of the crowd were less than half my age- young enough, basically, to be my children. I headed across town to the one sponsored by the coffee company. Now I’m surrounded by people my age and their children and feel just as out of place.

    We seem to have done basically the same thing today. I was at URBIS when they were setting up the stage – as I left an hour or so later they were still struggling to put it up!!

    As for the jazz, I was listening from across the road sitting outside the Slug and Lettuce. It was definitely the way to go I thought… Decent food and jazz instead of music and “food” products from that burger van they had on the square!
