2012 has seen the Manchester indie rock band , playing a clutch of UK and European festivals, ending the year with a home coming gig at the MEN in December.

John Robb of Louder than War noted of the lead singer: “He’s a top songwriter this Fray, a charismatic lanky kid armed with a guitar and a guttersnipe mouth who sings songs of scruffy beat up real Manchester, not the hip corporate tourist brochure of Manchester but the real dog eared Manchester that was the inspiration to all the great music that ever came out of the city”. A brutal honesty that has wan fans such as diverse as Morrissey and Noel Gallagher .

Tickets for the gig go on sale via www.Ironworksvenue.com at 10am on Friday the 14th of December.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
