One of the most fun bands touring at the moment, Hot 8 Brass Band perform sublime versions of pop classics through the medium of brass. Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing is reimagined as is Ghost Town by The Specials and many more familiar tunes. The New Orleans collective bring there funtime jams to Art Club, don’t miss it!
Joey Bada$$ @ O2 Academy
Thursday 12th November
Joey Bada$$ comes to Liverpool in support of debut album B4.DA.$$ with his World Domination tour. The Brooklyn-born rapper is winning lots of admirers in the hip hop community and you’ll be able to see why when his show (with support from Mick Jenkins and Denzel Curry) swings by.
Giorgio Moroder @ Arts Club
Saturday 14th November
The label gets thrown around far too readily these days, but this man is a bona fide legend. Almost single-handedly creating the disco genre with hits such as Love To Love You, Baby and I Feel Love, the Italian producer also has his finger prints on some of the most iconic movie sound tracks of all time including Scarface and Midnight Express. A special Evening With… event takes place at Arts Club on Saturday night – this one will be good.
Go West & Nick Kershaw @ The Philharmonic Hall
Sunday 15th November
Take a trip back to the 80s at the Phil with these big names from an era which is having a bit of a renaissance recently. Marking the 30th anniversary of the Go West hit We Close Our Eyes this is a great chance to see pop legends doing what they do best. T’Pau join the line up to make it a triumphant triumvirate.
