Waxxx fair, Thursday You like fairs? And you like clubbing? Oh, that’s handy. Because Waxxx are putting on both at the same time. The rather mental sounding Waxxx Fair sees DJs like Boddika, Levon Vincent and Loefah do their thing at the Baltic Triangle’s HAUS space while punters can enjoy a mini funfair. See you [...]
Advanced Style BLOG Millions of street style sites and fashion bloggers clog up the web with endless images of fresh-faced, groomed young things. So it’s great to see a blog celebrating true individual style in the form of a different generation: photographer Ari Seth Cohen highlights the headstrong, unique older people of New York and [...]
Local electronic-slash-dance-slash-whatever promoters Abandon Silence have been doing rather brilliant things over the past couple of years, and their recent move to the Masque shows Liverpool’s got quite a hunger for their excellently booked nights. They haven’t forgotten their original Shipping Forecast roots, though: the crew have bagged London’s finest electronic boffin Kieran Hebden, aka [...]
Chain & The Gang at The Shipping Forecast, 29th November GIG Life-affirming rickety garage pop goodness from Ian Svenonious, former frontman of The Make-Up and sometime chat show host (no, really), as his other other band visits The Shipping Forecast’s basement this week. Seriously, this guy just doesn’t stop. Promoters Evol have put together a [...]
Patrick Wolf – The Gallery, 21st November GIG A musical treat as part of this year’s strong Homotopia programme, the charismatic Wolf visits the tiny confines of Stanhope Street’s The Gallery this week. It’s difficult to believe Patrick, with a back catalogue stretching over a decade, still isn’t even in his 30s, and his current [...]
As one of many who have emerged out of the electronic scene in Berlin, Alex Niggemann’s reputation for being slightly eccentric can sometimes overshadow his talent. He began DJing in his teens before making the move to Berlin and enrolling himself onto an Audio Engineering course in order to gain a greater understanding of music. [...]
It’s been encouraging to see the steady rise of Abandon Silence. From its humble days as a half-full clubnight for a bunch of dance music nerds, to a must-attend event at the Shipping Forecast that regularly sells out, it’s been easily the biggest rise in Liverpool clubbing since Chibuku. Catering for the more experimental side [...]
Remember we told you a few weeks ago about Percy Gulliver’s Print Shop & Social? It’s been trading for a while, slowly but surely finding its feet in the ‘when did this get here?’ upstairs space in The Shipping Forecast. And now, it’s launching properly – in loud, spectacular fashion. This Saturday’s their big opening [...]
Consume Consume WEBSITE Who doesn’t love an online collection of amazing photographs? No, not of the Serengeti at sunrise. Of girls drunk in stairwells, or clubbers sticking their fists in their mouths? Yeah, that’s the way we roll. And that’s why we love this random gallery so much. http://consumeconsume.com Jens Lekman – I Know What [...]
We absolutely loved Percy Gulliver’s when it opened for a brief period last year. Set in a previously closed storefront on Bold Street, it was a perfect example of Liverpool’s ‘can do’ gung ho brilliance: a temporary shop stuffed tighter than Joe Anderson’s suit, with limited edition screenprinted posters, cards, clothing, zines and various stuff [...]
Pay your respects – and raise cash for charity – by celebrating a visionary producer and music maker who reshaped hip hop forever.
Norwegians would. Casiokids head to The Hold at the Shipping Forecast next month. They’ll put a smile on your face. You see if they don’t.
Stephanie Heneghan speaks to the men behind the city’s best weirdo-disco clubnight about their rise, the Brookside theme tune and the iconic Weatherall’s visit to the Shipping Forecast.
The city’s coolest little clubnight returns this autumn, with some impressive names set to take to the decks on Slater Street.
The man with a thousand aliases, Stuart Price, is coming to set the Hold alight this month, as his alter-ego, Jacques lu Cont. Stephanie Heneghan is a little bit excited.
