Let the music play
QUE Pasa has become Lark Lane's hotspot for hardened party elves year round, helped along with events like The Sound Of Music Xmas Thang held on Boxing Night.
Click for big sizeAn antidote to all things involving a rolled up Radio Times and a turkey baster, this year the tradition continues with Bernie Connor, No Fakin' DJs, Robin Jackson, Buddy S Keenan, The Probes and Josh Luca taking over the two floors of Daniel Agger's gaff.
The Sound Of Music is, of course, Bernie Connor's faithful monthly podcast of tunes and well worth your subscription.
See the poster for the full info and listen to the brand new Christmas 2013 edition, embedded here for rocking around the Christmas tree, ooh, about now.
Sound of Music Xmas Thang, Que Pasa, 94-96 Lark Lane, L17. Tickets £10 from Que Pasa. 7pm-1am. Get there early.
Come Boxing Day you will be craving two things: Food that isn't Christmas food. Music that isn't Christmas music. Plus shops, pubs, your real mates, normality.
And there is one craving that is easy to give in to.
Almost Famous Burgers, which serves the crack cocaine equivalent of filth food, is doing the world a favour by opening on Boxing Day. Get straight back into the saddle of life with River Phoenixes, Suicide Chicken Wings and Trailer Trash Fries while listening to cool sounds and getting Slade.
There aren't many restaurants open on Boxing Day and there are even fewer superb places willing or able to knock you back into the real world.
See you in there.
*Almost Famous Burgers, Parr St, Liverpool, Boxing Day from 3pm.
Aladdin, It's Raining Zen, has all the old slapsticka and characteres regulars have come to know and love.
Unlike any other panto in the city, the multi-talented cast sing, dance, entertain, and play music live on stage. Heading that cast are audience favourites Adam Keast as the Genie making everyone’s wish come true, and Liverpool’s infamous Panto Dame Francis Tucker as Widow Twanky, who will once again bring their renowned double-act to the stage to thrill and soak the crowd in equal measure
