Almeida Girl & Descarga, with Little Green @ Life Café, Manchester

Join two stonking Manchester bands for their Christmas party - and give to charity at the same time

Sunday 11th December

Life Café, 23 Peter Street, Manchester M2 5QR; 0161 833 3000

7pm – 1am

£10 and £5 from 9pm

In celebration of a highly successful year, Descarga, one of Britain 's leading specialists in Latin sounds, invite you to a Christmas party to remember. Bassist Matt Owens leads the band through a set of infectious rhythms from 10 – 11pm, fronted by Manchester favourite, the dazzling, sassy vocalist Kirsty Almeida - whose youthful sparkle will not be dimmed by her encroaching 30s… Beforehand, from 8.30 – 9.30, hear Little Green, formed recently by Manchester music genius John Ellis and soulful vocalist Judy Green as a creative melting pot for their myriad influences. Chris Cruiks, Gavin Barras and Andy Hay all help to make it a green Christmas. All proceeds go to charities: the Manchester Million Organisation and the Louise Willgrass Tsunami Fund.
