BOOM! It’s another wee competition giveaway.
Noticed the way January was a bit rubbish and now all the good gigs are piling into February like, oooo, I dunno, BUSES?
Well, here’s one for weekend. One of Liverpool’s much-talked about bands, Picturebook open their 2011 account with another date at the Shipping Forecast on Saturday (February 26, 9pm-3am) with Manchester electro-indie types Delphic closing the night with a set on the decks.
There’s also helping at hand from the likes of Kid British, Mancunian Gareth Brooks and Funkademia to ensure a pretty darn nifty night indeed.
And should you need further persuasion, the whole fandango is being held in association with Topman, to celebrate 10 years of work by CALM, the wellbeing campaign for blokes in the hope of raising Â£5000-worth of funding.
Simon Howes, top bloke type for CALM on Merseyside said: ‘The 10 years CALM has been active on Merseyside, we have used a whole host of ways to interact with lads and make them aware that when they need to get stuff off their chest, they can talk to us anonymously and in confidence. The gigs we have lined up are a great way to celebrate the partnership with Topman, raise funds to keep the phone lines open and over all have a great night out.‘
To snaffle up a pair of guestlist tickets add Getintothis on Twitter and tell us what the name of Delphic‘s debut album was.

* CALM; the Campaign Against Living Miserably, was set up in response to the high suicide rate in young men; in the UK 3 men every day take their own life by suicide. The charity, which has played a huge part of the music scene since it launched, uses a variety of ways to communicate and reach out to young men under 35. CALM gives lads something they can identify with by promoting the CALM website and helpline in a way that reaches lads and is easy to relate to.
