Something for the Weekend (25-27 April 08)

Beat boxings, bar openings and bard strolling in Ben's weekend offerings

Published on April 24th 2008.


Something for the Weekend (25-27 April 08)

Chibuku @ The Masque
Another weekend can only mean another rip-roaring night at Chibuku. This week, there's House, Techno and Drum and Bass courtesy of Hernan Cattaneo, James Holden and Fabio. There's also beat-boxing from Killa Kela who in the past has performed alongside Justin Timberlake, De La Soul and Prince. He's also appeared in a fruit pastilles advert. And he dated Patsy Kensit. (who hasn't) But the main point here is that he can make a fine multitude of different sounds using only his voice. See it.

Chibuku @ The Masque, Seel Street
Saturday 26 April
10pm – 4am

On The Ledge
Liverpool-born Alan Bleasdale returns to the Royal Court with On The Ledge. The play is set on the top two floors of a high-rise building overlooking Liverpool. Add to the mix a range of different characters, some that are meant to be there, and others not, and you get the mixture of drama and dark wit that you'd expect from a Bleasdale play.

On The Ledge @ Liverpool Royal CourtFriday 25 April – Saturday 24 May 2008
6.30pm, Last Food Order 7pm, Show 8pm
Tickets from £10. Meals available in the stalls before the show for extra £10

Let's go round again
Calling all fans of the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and Steely Dan. How would you like to see all your favourite bands under one roof? Well of course you would but that's not strictly possible. How then, would you like to see the very next big thing?

Tribute acts, Talon, Rumours of Fleetwood Mac and Nearly Dan are at the Echo Arena this Saturday to celebrate ten years on the road, tirelessly executing (yet not murdering) such classics as Hotel California and Go Your Own Way.

True, it's not quite the real thing but if you're happy enough watching the Venezuelan Beatles during the Mathew Street Festival, this lot are miles better (albeit not quite as funny).

World Class Tribute Series @ Liverpool Echo Arena
Saturday 26 April
£19.50

Sonnet Boom
Ahhhh... the Capital of Culture. This must be have been what they were taking about. The Liverpool Sonnet Walks is an interactive theatre experience – a stroll through many of Liverpool's most beautiful landmarks seeing hidden treasures and hearing forgotten stories as you go. Along route, you'll encounter various actors cunningly disguised as members of the public who will enact short renditions of Shakespeare's sonnets. How lovely.

Warning. It could pose problems in the future when trying to decide if the disheveled gentleman quoting Macbeth to you, is an actor or an alkie.

The Liverpool Sonnet Walks
Saturday 26 - Sunday 27 April
Tickets available via phone on 0151 324 0237 or from 'New from Nowhere' bookshop at 96 Bold Street

Rock the Kazimier
Reconstuct is the event marking the grand opening of the Kazimier. Located in Wolstenhome Square where the big bubble things are, the Kazimier will put on a series of one off thematic events. Come in costume on Friday night and experience performances of the musical, theatrical, artistic and death-deying. There is live music over three stages, three bars (including the Kazimier Absinthe bar and dispensary) a Grand Opening Ceremony, DJs in the Royal Box… that’s all I’ve got to go on really so you’d better go down to witness it for yourself. It all sounds like a ruddy hoot though.

Reconstruct @ The Kazimier, Wolstenholme Square
Friday 25 April
9pm onwards
£5 entrance
