Another week of worthy Merseyside gigs are on the cards, and Getintothis‘ David Hall will call your bluff and show his hand.
Roll up, roll up! It’s another bumper week on the Liverpool live circuit, with something to suit every taste imaginable. Whether that’s DIY punk, critically-lauded indie pop or perhaps a festival on the set of The goddamn Prisoner, we’ve got you covered.
Those are some pretty niche tastes; never let it be said that we don’t spread our net wide in the pursuit of something great.
Never let it be said either that we limit ourselves to Merseyside needlessly either! Our northern Welsh neighbours are putting on something so irresistible this week that the Gig Guide had to take a short hop over the water and across the border.
On our very own doorstep however, there’s plenty to enjoy! So don’t be stuck in this week, make sure you get stuck in if you’re able!
The Magnetic Fields: Philharmonic Hall, Monday September 4
Night two of The Magnetic Fields‘ epic – but not quite so epic as 69 Love Songs – double-nighter playing their latest 50 Song Memoir.
At the time of writing they’re yet to play the first gig, so we await both with great anticipation.
Marvin Powell: Buyers Club, Friday September 8
Strange Collective All Dayer: Invisible Wind Factory, Saturday September 9
Getintothis‘ Deep Cuts #8: Buyers Club, Tuesday September 5
Incredibly, we’re up to an eighth instalment of Getintothis‘ Buyer’s Club gig nights already.
Time flies when you’re having fun! There’s no let up in quality for night number eight either. Featuring Déjà Vega, Rival Bones and CYRO amongst others, it’s just as high on quality as ever, guaranteed.
Festival No.6 2017: Portmeirion, Thursday September 7 – Sunday September 10
Get onto this delicious lineup in the North Wales sun (weather subject to Northern Welsh change) with Bloc Party, Mogwai and appropriately weird Flaming Lips leading the charge in place-like-no-other Port Meirion.
With the likes of Kate Tempest, Hercules & Love Affair, Arab Strap and Wild Beasts further down the bill, it’s also bound to be a weekend like no other. A well-rounded festival festival experience featuring not only music into the early hours but a full arts and culture programme plus epic food and drink, Festival No.6 is one of the best out there.
Take your pick from the selection of excellent smaller gigs across Merseyside this week, with the help of Getintothis‘ Gigbites:
Joy Room: Studio 2, Parr Street, Thursday September 7
Songdog: 81 Renshaw Street, Friday September 8
We Were Glue: The Magnet, Friday September 8
Society of Losers #3 presents Wife Cake Ahead EP Release: Drop The Dumbulls Gallery, Saturday September 9
Free Reggae Social Hosted by Positive Vibration: District, Saturday September 9
Westerman: Studio 2, Parr Street, Saturday September 9
Casey Lowry: Zanzibar, Friday September 8
Sweaty Palms: Sound Food and Drink, Sunday September 17
Playing energetically moody garage rock, Sweaty Palms are a four-piece from Glasgow’s Southside and on course to give the Sound basement PA a thorough workout later this month.
They’re set to hit the stage along with the noisy ferocity of Wild Fruit Art Collective, Uncle Jane who are hosting the evening, and the wild garage punk of Chupa Cabra. Doors at 8, two quid on the door. Nice swan.
