Dutch Uncles, Flats and SPARK were among the acts who helped close this year's In The City festival.

The acts all played the NME showcase last night (October 15) at Manchester's Ruby Lounge venue.

Headlining the event were Stockport's Dutch Uncles, who played a high-paced 8-song set.

Taking to the stage to huge cheers and football style chants, the group opened proceedings with 'Face In'.

Later in the set the energy level didn't dip and was often matched by the crowd, especially on previous single 'The Ink', upcoming single 'Fragrant', plus closer 'Doppelgänger'.

After their set the band talked about their connection with other local bands and the much publicised new Manchester scene.

"It feels more like a community," bassist Robin Richards told NME. "We've known Delphic for years and we're got to know Airship and Egyptian Hip Hop, so it's less of a scene more that we're mates and we like their music."

Frontman Duncan Wallis added: "There's a lot of healthy competition going on, it's polite competition. We try and play gigs together as much as we can, there's no egos about it."

Dutch Uncles played:

'Face In'
'Orval'
'Dressage'
'Cadenza'
'OCDUC'
'Fragrant'
'The Ink'
'Doppelgänger'


Earlier in the night Tribes, Flats, SPARK and Glasser also appeared on the bill, with performances by Kisses and White Ring also taking place.

Meanwhile, the likes of Yuck, Spectrals , Porcelain Raft and Clock Opera, also appeared at various venues across Manchester.
