How good is this? Harvest Sun have secured what’s gonna be the gig of the festive season, as Duluth Minnesota’s Low head to the Anglican Cathedral this November. We’re promised a seated, intimate affair, in the vein of the stunning Edwyn Collins show. And we can. not. wait. Few bands still sound as vital, twenty [...]
Looking for something to do this Halloween in Liverpool? We’ve got it covered with a wide array of sinister suggestions.
There are a couple of spine-tingling moments in Treasured. Unfortunately, neither of them have anything to do with the script. Jen Heyes’ multimedia production, running at the Anglican Cathedral is a large-scale piece using projections, aerial acrobatics, live music and walk-through set-pieces. But its script – the theatrical rivets that should stitch Treasured together – [...]
As the days darken and the mercury plummets, the city starts to stir from its summer slumbers. There’s so much good stuff coming over the horizon it makes us yearn for a great Liverpool listings website. Not us, we really haven’t got the time. One event we’re happy to flag up is Treasured, a tantalisingly [...]
Like birds? Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral has loads of bird-themed events this weekend to celebrate the local RSPB group’s birthday.
Something very special happened both for me and for my adopted city this weekend. Rhys Chatham’s A Crimson Grail has only been performed twice before, in Paris 2005 and New York 2009. This time was different, with the UK premiere performed in the country’s largest cathedral, and I was privileged and honoured to be there [...]
We were well excited about the prospect of this Rhys Chatham performance: 100 guitarists, eight bassists, and one beautiful cathedral. Turns out hundreds of other people were excited about it too. Like, hundreds. Even by the time doors were officially meant to open, the line for people waiting to get in snaked all the way [...]
We love guitar hero Rhys Chatham. A stalwart of experimental music since the 1970s, coming to prominence as part of the noisy New York proto-punk No Wave scene, he’s comfortably slipped into the world of prestigious art festivals with his acclaimed guitar compositions. Not bad for a dude who turns 60 next week. Thanks to [...]
Having jumped off Liverpool Cathedral’s roof, Robin Brown asks why we don’t make more use of these glorious spaces.
What happens when you add opera to electronics on a hot summer’s night, and mix with a dash of ice cold Peroni? Something very refreshing indeed…
There are dozens of opportunities to see opera in Liverpool over the next six month – here’s how, when and why you should take the opportunity.
This year’s Biennial is shaping up to be something very special indeed – not least this rousing opening weekend event in conjunction with Samizdat, Rhys Chatham and a coach load of guitarists…
Liverpool’s first organist returns to St George’s Hall. We unearth a couple of fascinating facts about the city’s organs – and organists.
Everyone’s skint and the world’s gone to pot. But how to we fix it? Throughout the whole of February, Liverpool Cathedral have announce they’re offering a ‘Pray For The Economy’ area, where people can reflect and pray on how the economy’s gone tits up. It’s in the form of a labyrinth – but don’t panic! [...]
Get down to the grounds of the Anglican Cathedral tonight for a high wire show that might just save the world.
