Delving deep into this week’s Merseyside gig listings, Getintothis‘ David Hall brings you the Liverpool gig guide lowdown once more.
Looking for something to do one night after work this week? Need a night out at the weekend? Look no further than the gig guide for the next seven days!
We’ve got you covered, whether your tastes are leftfield, or… well. Not mainstream exactly, as headline household names are in pretty short supply this week.
But if it’s the household names of the future you’re after, then look no further than this lot. We’re pretty sure you’ll be hearing a lot more from one or two of these acts in the coming months and years.
Plus, exciting news. We’ve got the return of our Deep Cuts night. Now on a much more good times-friendly Friday night, allow us to get your weekend off to a flying start. Further details are below, so read on!
Steven Page: Arts Club, Wednesday August 8
Show of hands who keeps up with the comings and goings of Barenaked Ladies? Would any of you put your hands back down if we qualified that we meant the band?
The One Week guys’ frontman Steven Page broke with the group in 2009 to do his solo thing. That’s still going on, and he calls at the Arts Club this week. Who knew.
Bishop Nehru: 24 Kitchen Street, Friday August 10
Now with five albums to his name plus collabs with luminaries like MF DOOM, it feels like Nehru is right on the cusp of being a major hip hop player. Find out if he’s still on the up in the Baltic Triangle this week.
Getintothis Deep Cuts #18 Housewarming Party: Phase One, Friday August 10
Moving from a midweek slot to Friday primetime, Liverpool mavericks a.P.A.t.T. headline the re-launch of Getintothis’ patented live evening Deep Cuts. For its Phase One bow, Tracky, Shards, The Gear, and Feral Wheel FKA Wild Eyes all appear, with the inimitable Purple Heart Parade as main support.
Vegan Caribbean street food will be on offer courtesy of the tasty folks over at Italfresh and Hail Hail Records DJs will keep the night moving briskly between acts. It’s just £4 per ticket, or an extra two quid on the door. Check out the link below to grab yours now.

POSA, Wild Fruit Art Collective and Faniel Dord fill out the support slots for a MOLD show at the Jac this week. The Manchester band have been gathering momentum so far this year, with the four piece punctuating appearances at Manchester Psych Fest and Glasgow’s Freakender by supporting Warmduscher and embarking on their own tour.
New single Eyelids heralds a forthcoming EP, and is a squonky, anarchic Vic and Bob-style slice of jangle punk.

Upcoming gigs to keep an eye on:
Mogwai: Olympia, Thursday November 22
Seemingly forever touring doesn’t make a Mogwai gig any less special when it happens. That’s especially the case when they tip up right on your doorstep. Flexing its booking muscles after being welcomed into the Eventim fold, the Olympia hosts the Scottish post rockers this winter.
With over twenty years behind them, plus a soundtrack album for new movie KIN, featuring the previously released Donuts and new track We’re Not Done (complete with singing!). It’s bound to be a loud one.
