Halloween down, Bonfire Night to go, but as always there are gigs in-between and Getintothis’ Simon Kirk has the details.
We hope everyone enjoyed their Halloween. After all the fuss, we see Brexit still hasn’t happened – who could have predicted that? In all, it was one less burden for you to bear whilst stealing chocolates and sweets from your children’s Halloween haul.
So Bonfire Night awaits. Continuing our friendly advice from last week; if you’re going to light fireworks, then do it responsibly. Whatever that means. If you can gamble responsibly then surely the same applies to fireworks?
Anyway, gigs this week.
Not. Too. Bad.
It all kicks off on Monday with the Liverpool Metal Music Conference which is a free event held at Phase One. Stick your head in for a look and a chat with some of Liverpool’s metal community.
Our Deep Cuts event returns for its November instalment and once again, the line-up looks rather boss, even if we do say so ourselves.
While Priests prepare to shred The Shipping Forecast on Thursday, Sunday at Phase One looks like the place to be where we are honoured for the visit of Porto’s 10 000 Russos. Going to be special this.
There’s a few bigger fish swimming in the pond, too, but it’s the smaller ones that always taste sweeter. Whatever you choose this week, enjoy it.
The pick of the action:
A Pale Horse Named Death: Phase One, Monday November 4
Support on the night comes from doom outfit, OHHMS, Leeds-based doom/death metal collective, Petrichor and rising Liverpool doom metal band, MAIRU.
Deep Cuts : Phase One, Thursday November 7
Our Deep Cuts event returns in November and, as always, it offers an eclectic mix of new and emerging local talent.
The line-up is six deep this month, featuring Vidar Norheim, The Hushtones, L U N G S, San Pedro’s Vision, Motel Sundown and Jessica Cooke.
Priests: The Shipping Forecast, Thursday November 7
Washing DC DIYsters, Priests, return to the city on the back of their latest album, The Seduction of Kansas, which follows the incredible Nothing Feels Natural.
Seen Priests before? No? Don’t miss this one. We’ll be flitting between here and Phase One for Deep Cuts.
Greta Van Fleet: Mountford Hall, Saturday November 9
Blues-rockers, Greta Van Fleet, finally arrive on Merseyside after their original date from earlier this year was postponed.
The band have enjoyed a raft of success on the back of their 2018 debut release, Anthem of the Peaceful Army. Tickets are hard to come by for this one, folks, so good luck.
She Drew The Gun : O2 Academy Liverpool, Saturday November 9
What a year it’s between for She Drew The Gun. It looks like this tour cycle is about to end and what a fitting way to finish, with a homecoming show at the O2.
A new album next year, perhaps? Well, we’re hoping so, anyway.
Tickets are still available for this one, but get in and beat the last minute rush.
10 000 Russos: Phase One, Sunday November 10
Porto psychedelic post-punk outfit, 10 000 Russos make their Liverpool debut at Phase One in what is anticipated as one of the gigs of the week.
Having just released their brand new single, Runnin’ Escpain’, support on the night comes from local acts, Ugly Mothers, Nick Branton, and David Kelly.
