Still tired and emotional after last weekend? You are so yesterday. Get your high heels back on, boys and girs, and enjoy this lot with Ben Patey

Something for the Weekend (18-20 January, 2008)

Smells like La-teen spirit
Down on the corner of Roscoe Street and Oldham Street stands a new cafe you may not yet have come across. El Rincon Latino (surprisingly enough), is a Latin themed cafe which, apart from its bona fide name, also offers authentic food and drink from across southern and central America as well as nights of Latin dance and music.

Other things going on at the cafe include dance classes, Spanish classes, fiestas, conferences, training and showing of films and documentaries. This Friday is Noche Clandestina (clandestine night), which promises top Latin sounds coming deep from the underground. We'll be bringing you a full review soon but in the meantime, get down there and broaden your horizons!

Noche Clandestina @ El Rincon Latina, Roscoe Street
£3.00 After 10:00pm

Number one project
Elvis Costello and The Real Thing are amongst the big names performing at the new arena this Saturday.

In recognition of Liverpool’s fine musical heritage, a host of great artists will be performing unique versions of one of the 56 number one songs which the area has generated over the last 50 years.

Freddie Starr will be compering the charity event which will feature ex-Eton Road singer Anthony Hannah singing Frankie Goes to Hollywood's 'Relax' and Atomic Kitten who will do 'Anyone Who Had a Heart'.

The cast of Hollyoaks will be getting in on the act singing (or at least trying to sing) 'How Much is That Doggy in the Window?' - the first ever Liverpool number one, by Lita Rosa, way back in 1953.

The question is, will anyone have the balls to take on Mel C's 'I turn to you'?

The Number One Project @ the |Kings Dock Arena.
Saturday 19th January
Box Office: 0844 8000 400

My ‘art will go on
As part of Liverpool's Capital of Culture celebrations, The Tate will be welcoming many masterpieces of modern art into its home. It’s already been revealed that Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso will be amongst the big names on display in the next year, and this weekend the works of Stanley Spencer set up temporary camp in the gallery. Spencer painted over 450 pictures and hundreds of drawings in his lifetime, and received a knighthood in 1959. He was particularly well known for his subjects that mixed everyday life with religious themes. The paintings will be on display until the spring but you may as well head down soon. It’s free after all, and you’re probably skint. And cheap.

You spin me right round
If you inadvertently get drawn to The Magnet on Friday, you're in for a treat. DJ IQ - two-time winner of the DMC Championships - is on the decks. None the wiser? Well this guy is amongst the best DJs around. He'll entertain the masses solely with his two turntables and a mixer.

No effects. No pre-recorded rubbish. Just scratching and mixing live for your enjoyment. There’ll be funk, hip-hop, Soul, drum & bass and reggae so there's plenty to get down to. So get down.

Donuts @ The Magnet, Hardman Street
Saturday 19 January
£3 Nus / £4
