Deaf School to close Birkenhead's Pacific Road Arts Centre

What a way to end it all indeed

Deaf School to close Birkenhead's Pacific Road Arts Centre

DEAF School put on a live show that all the money in the world couldn't buy, said the NME recently. 

That is quite true. They are also good at closing things down. Remember the Everyman in the summer? The clue is in the song titles. 

Now, regrettably, it seems nothing can buy Birkenhead's popular Pacific Road Arts Centre a stay of execution. 

It closes on December 23 and Deaf School are booked in as the Final Act. If you have never seen them, perhaps you should.

Some people say Pacific Road has been run into the ground at the expense of the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton.

Whatever, Birkenhead will be all the poorer for its demise, so perchance to celebrate/commiserate in time for Christmas with the band that reforms sporadically for the sort of live gigs that make you forget all the miserable bastards out in the world who are ready to trip you up.  

Deaf School were recently rated as one of the most influential British bands ever. With very good cause. 

Enrico, Bette, Langer, Ripple et al. This multi-talented, eight strong combo formed in 1973 at Liverpool Art College and made their name as being one of the challenging, most entertaining bands around.... suffice to say they always put on a cracking show.

If you are reading this anywhere else in the UK (and after Liverpool, we get most of our hits from exiles in London) you can see Deaf School on Wednesday December 21 at The Jazz Cafe, London.

This Deaf School show will, they say, without doubt be THE fashionable, must see, culturally aware, media savvy, pre-Christmas gig in London this festive season.

Well we at Liverpool Confidential might have already booked the train for this event, so it must be. 

Tickets £12 from Ticketmaster. 

Back here, two days later on Friday December 23 it's Pacific Road's turn.  Tickets are £16 available from the box office on 0151 666 0000.

We are all sorry to see it go. But let's face it, with a box office number like that, it was never going to be easy.
