Have you got your calendar out? We’ve got a special gig for you as the legendary psychedelic band The Telescopes are back in Liverpool as part of December’s Deep Cuts Extravaganza. The innovators of modern noise-rock look to wow Phase One on December 6th and you can get your tickets here.
Just as one festival season comes to an end next year’s bliss of tents, wellies and great music is already gearing up for another bumper year.
Liverpool’s massive reggae festival Positive Vibrations has announced details of its return, Salford’s Sound From The Other City have penned their 2020 dates and Liverpool’s North Shore has yet another date for the diary with I Love Live’s new festival Melon Yellow.
Liverpool Biennial announced its 2020 theme as art looks to take over the city once again. It is a shame however that Liverpool’s emerging talent weekender, Threshold Festival have announced that next year will be their tenth and final event- it will be greatly missed.

If it is exciting music you’re after then sink your teeth into the Alaskan Punks The Anemic Boyfriends in Songs From Under The Floorboards. If you’d like to reminisce on the classics ABC’s divisive 2nd album Beauty Stab was celebrated this week and Liverpool’s very own Louis Berry released a new EP.
