I had never shot inside the Manchester Deaf Institute before, and didn’t expect it to be as good a venue as it was. There are a lot of venues that are essentially pubs with a stage and some red lights, but the Deaf Institute really surprised and impressed me – and it has also obviously had a lot of money spent on it too.

The Band Wars event was hosted by Female First, with Thinking For Tuesday, Mobius Loop, Friend Called Fred and Boy Genius battling it out to be crowned winner. Imperial Vipers headlined while the votes were counted, with Mobius Loop eventually going on to win.

You can see more shots on my Flickr, but below are two pictures of the Deaf Institute.
