With a string of stellar acts set to take Liverpool by storm this week, Getintothis Craig MacDonald thinks Donald Trump should heed his words.
For if the walking ass hat took a moment away from belittling woman and his plans to build walls, he could possibly have a moment of clarity if he were to walk through our streets this week. For where better then here to show him that people from all genders, religions and races can work together to make beautiful things?
So if be some miracle, you are reading this Donald, get your merkin shaped head out your colon, have a read through and see what your missing.

Scott Fagan: Music Room, October 19
Heading to the Music Room this week with his classic album South Atlantic Blues, Scott Fagan was at one point tipped to be the psych-folk version of Elvis.
Fifty years on and in some circles many would say Fagan is the true King in his arena. With Stephen Steinbrink and Entrance also on offer, this is a midweek treat not to be missed.
We Are Scientists: Arts Club, October 19
Hitting the Arts Club as part of their extensive UK tour this week, We Are Scientists will have all the tools to make an almighty clatter on their return to town.
