Somethings for the weekend (Dec 16-18)

Bunnymen larks
Liverpool Confidential's office neighbours, Echo and the Bunnymen, are doing two gigs in Liverpool this weekend and if you fancy hearing The Killing Moon done as it ought to be - and that's live - catch them at the O2 Academy. 

Will SergeantWill SergeantWant to go one further and meet one of them? Well, rather than hang about on our stairs in vain for several weeks, head to the Penny Lane Gallery either today (Friday) or tomorrow where the Sarge himself will be doing a meet and greet and selling some of his striking limited edition, signed prints. 

Howzat for Christmas presents?

*Echo and the Bunnymen, 02 Academy, Hotham Street, Friday/Saturday Dec 16/17. £18. Will Sergeant meet n greet, Penny Lane Gallery, 38 Penny Lane. Friday/Saturday Dec 16/17, 2pm-4pm.

Drama larks
It’s been done so many times, the story of Scrooge, but, as far as we know, Scrooge has never before owned a shoe shop, played hip hop music or had a sex change. A 21st Century Christmas Carol is a modern adaptation of Charles Dickens infused with the freshest kicks and beats.

Eliza Scrooge is a shoe shop owner who's penny-pinching ways are about to get her into trouble. Eliza owns an independent shoe shop in Liverpool called "Kicking It", and is working her staff hard, giving no thanks in return.

*21st Century Christmas Carol, Lantern Theatre, Blundell Street, Friday 16th December, from 7.30pm, tickets £7


 Spooky larks
Speaking of ghosts of Christmas... All ghost hunters of Liverpool have invited to explore the depths of history beneath Lime Street. According to the organisers of this spooky event, the location has remained a mystery for many years, abandoned and never before seen by the public, until now.

What was once thought to be an old subterranean street joining Lime Street station to the Great North Western Hotel is now believed to be the original basements of the hotel, completed in 1871.

There’s tales of a lady dressed in white roaming the upper basement level, the feeling of being followed up the basement stairs by an invisible energy and sounds of a woman singing are some of the many paranormal accounts that have taken place in this historic site.

Whatever, there is a pub upstairs, you know.

What Lies Beneath, Saturday 17th December, Empire Theatre, Lime Street, from 8pm, tickets £30

Salacious larks
Are You Louche is a salacious (their word) Christmas soiree, hosted by the soon-to-close Contemporary Urban Centre this weekend.

Organisers say they want to put the swing in everybody's hips, seduce them to dance along the line of immoral conduct and disreputable behaviour with lavish smiles on their faces.

Expect a barrage of filthy beats that will have rumps a rollin' into the early hours (What the hell is this about? ed).

Some of those providing the beats are Hold It Down, Tom Long and Andy Ollerhead.

*Are You Louche, Saturday 17th December, Contemporary Urban Centre, Greenland Street, from 9pm, tickets £3
