Something for the weekend?

Formerly Mezzaluna, this spacious bar and live venue is now under new management and rebadged as 'Fresh' . You can catch 'Last Flowers' there tonight (Fri).Or why not head to Porters (Prince of Wales) for a dose of local favourites Dazed and Confused? Fury UK play the Nags Head on Friday night and Decadenze on Saturday.

Thanks to Garry White for his tip for Sunday and the debut gig for new band RECKONER.

'This one is both intriguing and liable to be explosively good. The band has been formed by Jamie Walker, Macc born guitar wizard and his drummer from their other band, the bluesy TANTRUM ( who still exist and thrive) as a new project. This gig is a warmup for the band for their huge sell out gig 2 days later supporting the legendary HOAX at Manchester's Band on the Wall. Jesse Davey the awesome guitarist from Hoax is a confirmed fan of Jamies and invites himself along to jam with Tantrum regularly. You couldn't pay me enough not to be at both these gigs.
Supporting RECKONER at Toast will be ELMER THUG local ska/rock/indie band. Should be proper good .' Thanks Garry.

Meanwhile, ensure your brussels are magnificent ( and lots of other epicurean goodies too) by nipping to the ever wonderful farmers market at Cloverbank Farm this Saturday or if you prefer the The Hollins Pub have their farmers market on Sunday .It starts at 7pm with mulled wine and carols too.

For further festive cheer join the carollers for mince pies and music in West Park on Sunday afternoon. A little snow would be awfully pretty...

To finish the weekend and to remember the true meaning of Christmas make your way to to St.Michaels Church, where a candlelight carol service will be held on Sunday night .
