Something for the weekend (27th - 29th June)

Heather Smith's unmissable guide to unmissable stuff over the next couple of days

Published on June 27th 2008.


Something for the weekend (27th - 29th June)

Crimson Rise
Down at the Albert Dock, Walk the Plank's theatre ship Fitzcarraldo will be kitted out for a music gig/boat party. Crimson Rise, Liverpool based indie up-and-comers, are the band topping the bill, promising to have learnt lessons from the last time they hired the ship back in May. They have got two generators this time and the show will go on later. Brilliant. Whether you want to check out this decent soul-filled scouse four piece or check out this crazy venue to hire for a party of your own, for £3, its well worth popping down and well, walking the plank.

Crimson Rise @ Walk The Plank's Theatre Ship, Canning/Albert Dock, 28th June, 8.30pm. £3

Pipilotti Rist
The popular contemporary artist, Pipilotti Rist brings a new project to FACT this weekend. The exhibition -the third of FACT's Human Future's programme addressing body, mind and world- will stay at the venue over summer. Promising to blur the lines between the natural and industrial worlds, expect an intriguing mix of sculpture and video, offering new ways as to how us humans could one day live together. Also, as of Sunday, keep your eye on the big BBC screen in Clayton Square, where one of the videos, originally commissioned for Times Square will be broadcast for the duration of the exhibition.

Pipilotti Rist @ FACT, 88 Wood Street, 27 June – 31 August, free.

Mystic Bounce
Following the massive success of the club night launched last month, Mystic Bounce returns to the Contemporary Urban Centre this Friday for more merry madness. The venue, only days after hosting Design Show Liverpool, will again be the home to resident table-turners Razzalini and Marc Owens will be blasting out the tunes, covering a bit everything from the soul of mowtown to afrobeat and acid jazz. The heavy-weight sound system wraps up the night with a pile of eye-popping visuals to boot. A free-entry event playing cracking music, taking place in a cracking venue. You can't go wrong.

Mystic Bounce @ The Contemporary Urban Centre, 41-51 Greenland Street, 27th June, 8.30pm, free.

Sefton Park Gardens
Fancy an afternoon of exploring, surrounded by greenery, with piles of entertainment at your green-fingertips? Look no further than Sefton Park this Sunday where two previously private gardens and up to 90 hidden allotments will open to the public for the first time. To celebrate there will be loads going on during the day including activities for the kids as well as music from Just Midnight and Mersey Junior Strings, exhibitions, refreshments and a plant sale in the Palmhouse. The gardens will be lined with yellow balloons and it all sounds like a party in the park worth going to.

Sefton Park Gardens Open Day @ Sefton Park & Palmhouse, 29th June, 12pm, £4 (for entry to the gardens only).
