Hey! Manchester presents Bad Bad Hats w/ Pys Melyn

Please note this is an 18+ event

Bad Bad Hats are an indie rock band from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Kerry Alexander and Chris Hoge met in college and formed the band in 2012. In the 10 years of BBH, they have toured the country several times in their trusty minivan, sampling the best local cuisine along the way.


BBH has toured with The Beths, Margaret Glaspy, The Front Bottoms, Hippo Campus and Michelle Branch, among many others. Their new album, Bad Bad Hats, is out 12 April 2024 via Don Giovanni Records.


Special guests are Pys Melyn. Pys Melyn are Ceiri, Sion, Owain, Owain and Jac from Pen Llyn, North Wales. Gigging since 2014, Pys Melyn’s first singles were released in 2018. They formed Ski-Whiff records the following year and released their first album, Bywyd Llonydd (Still Life), in 2021, which drew on a variety of global influences and was nominated for a Welsh Music Prize. They released their second album Bolmynydd in August 2023, which draws on a more traditional range of 60’s/70’s influences.


After releasing Bolmynydd, they toured around the UK and Brittany, playing venues like the Garage in London and Rough Trade Bristol. In 2024 they have recorded a BBC 6 Music session for Riley and Coe, supported Gruff Rhys on the Sadness Sets Me Free tour and are looking forward to supporting Spiritualized at Focus Wales in May, as well as a host of festivals and gigs across the UK in the summer. They’re looking forward to releasing new music in 2024 with a third album on the way.
