Something for the Weekend (06-08 June 08)

Mellow Magic…
Fancy a top-notch night of quality live folk and country acts plus class resident DJ’s who will blend the evening into one single state of acoustic bliss? Well, you’re in luck. Mellowtone is back in business at the View Two Gallery. The cosy Mathew Street venue provides the perfect setting for the likes of Paul Wilkes, Eves and the Snake and SJ Downes to intimately showcase their vocal capabilities. Fresh from the Zanzibar gig for Liverpool Sound City, Mellowtone move on, continuing to cause a charismatic stir whichever venue their events creep into. A guaranteed hoot for music lovers and all-round cool-cats.

Mellowtone @ The View Two Gallery, Mathew St.
Fri 6th June, 8pm, £4/£3 on the door,

Good Lord…
It’s that time of year again folks, the good old Lord Mayor’s parade is back and, as you might have guessed, it has been bettered, revamped and reborn to deliver an extra special show for 2008. The good thing about this annual parade is that it doesn’t matter whether you love or loathe the robed Councillor Rotheram; it’s an opportunity to participate. Walk the Plank and the Lantern Company have collaborated to fun-fill the streets with carnival music, colourful costumes and spectacular floats which have been created by community groups and local businesses. Pop along, you might enjoy yourself… and probably end up in the pub afterwards.

The Lord Mayor’s Parade, City Centre
Sat 7th June, 1pm, starting at Pall Mall

Star struck...
We all know that the Albert Dock is every stars favourite hangout. Luckily however, for this free outdoor astronomy festival, there won’t be a WAG in sight. The railings from Nauticalia to the Tate will be lined with photographs taken from the Hubble Space telescope intriguing us with the mysterious workings of the cosmos. Your mind may need to wind down with a drink or two in one of the ‘Docks bars or maybe a spot of retail therapy.

Definitely worth a look, parts of the exhibition are being premiered in great cities before together embarking on a world tour in 2009, the International Year of Astronomy. Think of it as a sneak preview for the ‘Pool, centre of the universe.

From Earth to the Universe @ Albert Dock
Sat 7th June – 29th June, Free

Just over a fortnight since playing a cracking, crowd-pleasing set for the Left Field at Glastonbury event, The Rascals are to revisit the Carling Academy on Monday night. This time, the talented Wirral trio take to the stage as part of their 11-date UK headline tour, approaching the release of debut Deltasonic album Rascalize, which hits the shops June 23rd. Expect a super-tight, fast-paced set of quirky, anthemic rock ‘n’ roll from Miles Kane and co, who are set to go down a storm at this summer’s festivals, both at home and abroad.

The Rascals @ Carling Academy, £7.50
Mon 9th June, 7pm
Call Ticketweb: 0844 477 2000

Let’s go fly a kite…
If you’re looking for something to entertain the kids this weekend, the annual international “Kites Over the Mersey” festival isn’t by far a bad option. If the striking stunt and show kites aren’t enough to please you, loads of activities are being put on, such as £1 kite-workshops and the apparently very popular “Bear Drop,” which involves entering your kids’ much-loved Ted into a draw for the prize of being parachuted in to the main arena from a static kite. Better make sure it isn’t their favourite first.

Kites Over The Mersey, New Brighton Promenade,
Sat 7th and Sun 8th June
11am – 4pm, Free
