We will be at reduced capacity and seats are allocated on arrival. Bookings can be made in bubbles from 2 - 6 people.
Nikki & The Waves are the Northwest’s funky daydream-pop band. (Or self-proclaimed: ’daydream pop’) With a wide range of influences, they’re difficult to pin down but easy to listen to. By mixing brass with upbeat guitars and melancholic melodies they manage to create a modern sound that is nostalgic at the same time. Their new single ‘Shirts’ shows the band taking their sound to a more polished next level with help from producer James Skelly (The Coral, Blossoms) at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool.
As a 2020 graduate of Music at Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, Molly Green has jazzy soulful undertones, combined with a love for RnB and has gone on to appear at numerous live music events, including Glastonbury Music Festival, at Bristol's well established Colston Hall and has sold out two headline shows at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool.
Opening the evening is Esme Bridie who has always had a love of writing. She started out writing poems and stories which eventually turned into songs. As a teenager she was encouraged at open mic nights in Liverpool and it was here that she found her love of performing live. She is currently exploring topics of mental health, loneliness and self-acceptance in her songwriting, complimented with intricate guitar work and emotive vocals.
We are an arts centre located in a former Gaumont Cinema venue now refurbished to a high standard and offering a 430 seated auditorium (now just over 100 due to COVID-19) with sound, lighting and AV systems. Two audio recording suites, a well equipped small café and a number of conference rooms.
