I love the Future Yard. Being on this side of the water, it's amazing to be able to hop on a bus and be 10 minutes away from such a good venue and it means I've seen people (who I've ended up loving) that I wouldn't normally head to Manchester for. I'm there tonight actually for Nuggets Live which Edgar Jones and Will Sergeant are DJing.

They also have plans to buy and use the old railway tunnel over the fence outside which will make it big venue and should get even bigger names.

Really enjoyed Future Yard as a venue when I saw The Coral there back in May. Decent bar in the  front as well.

was at Gruff Rhys at the Arts Club yesterday evening. Show was great, he played most of his new album, plus a smattering of older solo stuff. Finished nice and early too which is a bonus when you get to my age. Didn't enjoying queuing in the rain for 15 minutes before the show though. They need to sort out their mad ticketing system.

Was at this too (great to be back at the re-opened Arts Club!) and thoroughly enjoyed the show - third time seeing Gruff Rhys, following his tour for the previous album and then a support slot for The Coral a few months ago, and he's probably on my list of artists I'll look to catch every time they're in Liverpool or Manchester now.

I know one of the staff involved in the ownership/event-management side there, and - given it was my first time back - did feel a duty to offer a few bits of feedback afterwards, but I'm sure they'll get things sorted.

Was able to do a good deed on the night too - girl & her dad next to me had their phone-torches out and were looking for something towards the end of the gig, and I spotted an earring on the floor as the place cleared out. Thought they'd left but I found them near the toilets/side of stage, and they were both pretty overwhelmed - she said it was "[her] mum's from the eighties" and it was clear there was some significant sentimental value involved. Glad I picked it up when I spotted it.

Feeder and The Staves are the next couple for me in Liverpool - nice to have some local (touring artist) gigs again!

Got a ticket for the On The Waterfront Festival at the Pier Head in June. Ocean Colour Scene, Cast, Embrace, The View, Republica, and a few others.

Seen Cast a load of times, but never Ocean Colour Scene and Embrace were a band I liked a lot when I was kid (first three albums) - I feel it'd be daft of me not to go to that!

cool, I'm going back there to see Jane Weaver in May. Will hopefully have sorted the queuing/ticketing by then. As you say, it's great to have another venue in the city centre and hopefully this will mean that more artists will come here, as it sometimes feels like Liverpool is a bit overlooked compared with other cities in the north.

Saw Kaiser Chiefs in the Jacaranda Baltic this evening. Been a great new addition to the city since it opened with loads of album launch shows.

Went to the new (ish?) Jacaranda Baltic on Saturday night - Feeder were in for an album launch performance & signing (album was out on Friday). The venue had also had The Libertines in earlier in the day.

Great to have another venue open in the city that's small but also big enough to accommodate touring artists, after what had felt like a tough couple of years for venues. Also went to Content to see Bill Ryder Jones a couple of weeks ago.

Still got the slight challenge of geographic location when it comes to drawing artists into the city (where, for example, they don't need to do both Liverpool & Manchester and so tend to play Manchester), but between Jacaranda Baltic, Content, the re-opened Arts Club, the Invisible Wind Factory, the Academy, and the university, there feels like a good range of small- to mid-sized venues again (in addition to the Phil, the Olympia, and of course the arena). Starting to have some faith in all that 'music city' promo again  :P

It's a cracking little venue, been to three album launch shows since it opened.

Rough Trade will have a small venue as well, shop opens next week and the venue in May I believe.
