As everyone in the know knows, Liverpool's Kazimier is a refreshing breath of air. So much so, that less imaginative clubs and bars (that's nearly all of them then) frequently scratch their heads and wonder.

This Friday night you can forget clouds of volcanic ash as a refreshing breath of air – literally – comes sweeping in from Germany.

Virtuoso Bavarian krunk band LaBrassBanda return to Wolstenholme Square after a dazzling show last year. A five-piece from Bavaria, they convey uber-funky-punky stuff with three horns, drums and bass.

La BrassBanda have earned cult status with their energetic performances from St. Pauli to Moscow, from Siena to London and at festivals all over Europe. Treat yourself to a slice of rocket fuel (above).

Gluewein (German rum-infused mulled wine) will be served along with some fine support bands and it's oh so cheap to go.

Tickets £5 available from http://www.thekazimier.co.uk/listings.htm or in person from Mello Mello Cafe (Parr St. Liverpool)

Farewell to Sam
Back-to-back gigs featuring a cast of stars at the Liverpool Everyman this Saturday showcase the work and ways of one of the city's legendary bands, which lost one of its formidable flock earlier this year.

Deaf School's former front man Sam Davis is no longer with us but celebrating his work and joining the outfit for one of the year's most special sessions are Suggs, Kevin Rowland, Ian Broudie, Pete Wylie and Lee Thompson, plus an extra special appearance by original Deaf School band member Paul Pilnick.

The legendary Liverpool guitarist, who played in The Big Three and Stealers Wheel, will be reunited on stage with the band for the first time since 1976.

A song penned by Davis just before his death will be debuted at the shows.

Deaf School’s illustrious history includes three albums for Warner Brothers (2nd Honeymoon, Don't Stop the World, English Boys/Working Girls), performed three John Peel sessions, toured extensively in the UK and America and were one of the most popular live acts of their time. In 1988 they reformed for a series of dates which were recorded and released as 2nd Coming: Liverpool ’88.

*Deaf School tribute to Sam Davis, Liverpool Everyman, Saturday 17th April at 7pm and 9.30pm. Tickets, from £18 to £28, on 0151 709 4776 and www.everymanplayhouse.com.

Blonde ambition
Noisy indie rock band and SXSW favourites Dirtblonde will be at the Chew Disco night at Korova on Friday.

You'll probably be entertained with tracks from the band's new double-A side single, out Monday. Two tracks, Brooklyn and White Horses, will be available as a free download and also on limited edition cassette tape.

White Horses is the loudest track, powered by heavy beats and wall of sound guitars. Brooklyn is inspired by the band’s mini-tour of New York and is a melancholic slacker-pop song about paranoia and alienation in an unfamiliar city.

Go listen hereirtblonde.co.uk.

Then go watch.

*Dirtblonde, Chew Disco night at Korova, L1, Friday 16 April., Doors open 10.30pm, £3 entry.
