It’s that time of year again, Liverpool Music Week once again graces us with a 10-day stretched week of gigs taking place in venues across the city from Wednesday 26th October to Friday 4th November. Now entering it’s eleventh year the annual event has become an institution in Liverpool in it’s own right, well what did you expect in a city awash with musical heritage like The Beatles and Cilla Black. The line-up does not disappoint, including John Carpenter, Warpaint and Dinosaur Jr. Three big names at the top of an impressive line up, catering to all tastes ad venues across the city.
28 October – Halloween Weekend
The legendary ‘Master of Horror’ director arrives for a short UK trip; he’s the big hitter at the week events. This fella hasn’t missed a trick on this one, scheduling his performance carefully around Halloween; the man who directed the likes of The Fog, The Thing and Village of The Damned is an icon of the horror genre. He’s a man of many talents, having composed the scores to numerous of his famous films, expect to hear some very familiar songs from your favourite films, including the chilling Halloween. A full live band and fully immersive visuals will accompany him, performing in the impressive surrounding of the Olympia on Friday, October 28th.
The Dome at Grand Central Hall
The LA all girl gang Warpaint will headline the stunning old room in the heart of the city at the Grand Central Dome on Wednesday, October 26th. They kick off the first day of the festival opening party, so no pressure girls ;) They recently released their third LP Heads Up; the experimental four-piece have will no doubt bring an amazing set to Liverpool. The girls never fail to bring an exciting live presence wherever they play, so the atmospheric surroundings of the Dome should add something genuinely specia
The American rock legends Dinosaur Jr. will play a somewhat intimate gig by their standards, 1300 capacity at the Arts Club! Off the back of their new album of ‘Give A Glimpse of What Yer Not’ met with very positive reviews, the band now been back in their classic set up of J Mascis out front, Lou Barlow on bass, and Murph behind the kit! Won't a gig you'd wanna miss in a hurry!
