Something for the weekend?
It's a weekend for fine live sounds and dancing, starting with Melanie Williams and Jo Roberts (Loop favourites) at The Hollins on Friday from 9pm.
The Nags Head on Waters Green serves up its usual fine Fri and Sat line-up with Ace D C and Decaddenze, in that order. http://www.nagsmacc.co.uk/
The X-Bvrs (2 members are ex Screaming Beavers), play soul/disco at The Millstone on Saturday - expect rock covers from Fleetwood Mac to Muse. (x-bvrs pic courtesy of Louise Murphy)

Also, but only if you were one of 'the chosen' you'll be living the muso life at The Un-convention Factory... on Saturday (see previous posting for details). We won't rub your nose in it if you didn't get a golden ticket... http://www.unconventionhub.org/
