SFTW (27 Feb- Mar 1)

Great gigs, tall climbs and a bit of waggery in Southport. It's all here with Heather Smith and her incredible tips

Published on February 27th 2009.

SFTW (27 Feb- Mar 1)

C.A.L.M up
Living miserably? Then you are not alone. No really, you aren't, because CALM is there for you.

The Campaign Against Living Miserably is to relaunch its helpline on Monday to give professional help and advice to anyone, but particulary young men, in dealing with emotional difficulties. (0800 58 58 58, 5pm-midnight)

Indie pop-patron Marc Sunderland was so impressed by the work CALM do, that he joined forces with For The Love Of..... to put on a 12-hour marathon gig to raise money for them.

Naturally, his band Peter and the Wolf will be topping the all dayer/nighter, with The Vanities cranking up those blues notes. Loads more plus the DJs, art displays and raffles where you could win Chibuku tickets, a Voodou-hairdo or some Fred Perry gear.
*For the Love of... C.A.L.M @ Zanzibar, Sat 28th Feb, 12pm onwards, free. £1 donation to C.A.L.M .

Exclusive, like
A brand new 'exclusive' club night launches tonight, not in your usual city centre hole, but in Southport's swish boutique hotel, The Vincent. Wild nights at hotels are the future of clubbing, so they tell us.

Curran, Gerrard and other celebrity Formbyites have been spotted sipping at the venue, giving that unbearably exclusive/pretentious tag even more weight than, say, Cube.

Former Cream and Radio 1 Djing legend Seb Fontaine will be churning out the tunes, kicking off what is hoped will become a monthly event.

Aside from Seb, watch out for the Soviet décor, life sized bears and a snow storm reception on arrival, random ice sculptures and a Vodka Luge, served by Abercrombie and Fitch models, obviously.
Club V @ the Vincent, Fri 27th Feb, 8pm, tickets £30, call 01704 883825.

In the Moog
The C.A.L.M beano might be the finale to a cracking weekend for the Zanzibar where Howard Elliot Payne as he's now known- will be headlining the venue tonight (Friday).

However, the place to be for a bit of Moog music is the Kazimer on Wolstenholme Square (once the Conti).

Tonight (Friday) you can see the rather splendid Dogshow, where synth-meets-Captian-Beefheart. A bit.

They run the place, and in support Riot Jazz, an eight-piece outfit from Manchester who take tunes like the Human League's Don't You Want Me? and give them the brasso treatment. Also Long Finger Bandits “gypsy crunk from 5 girls”.

It's only a fiver. It'll do you good.
Dog Show, Riot Jazz and Long Finger Bandits, Kazimier, Wolstenholme Square, L1. 8pm-1am. £5 on the door

Up the pole
Ever fancied climbing to the top of Britain's oldest brick-built lighthouse? Of course you have.

This Sunday, Leasowe's towering beacon will open its doors to the public, offering top vistas of Wirral, the 'Pool, maybe Wales, infinity and beyond.

If you're going pale at the thought of the soaring 20 minute volunteer-run tours to the top (or measure shorter than 1.06 metres) then you'll have to keep your feet firmly on the ground.

Just as well there's a nifty exhibition area where you can chat to with the volunteers and other visitors, buy souvenirs and enjoy refreshments.
Leasowe Lighthouse Open Day, Sun 1st March, 1pm-4pm, cost £2 per adult, 75 pence per child, for more information call 0151 678 5488.
