Culture Diary w/c 03-12-12

Monday Pink: Past & Present 6.30pm @ FACT

A document of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history from 1950s to the present day, Pink: Past & Present provides a fascinating insight into what it was, and is, to be gay in Liverpoool. Described by Councillor Wendy Simon, cabinet member for Culture and Tourism as “not only a moving and inspirational film but also a fantastic insight into Liverpool’s LGBT community”, Pink: Past & Present screens as part of Homotopia.

Tuesday Photojournalism Workshop 3pm @ FACT FREE

Led by photographic charity PhotoVoice, this free workshop provides tips and insight into how to “take good photographs, tell a news story with a single photograph, and how to sell your images to the press.” A great opportunity for the casual photographer and budding citizen journalists, alike, to book a free place email Clare Struthers: Rather apt that showing later the same day is 5 Broken Cameras, the subject of our latest podcast.

Admiral Fallow 7.30pm @ The Kazimier £9

The bittersweet boy/girl vocals, hauntingly evocative production (calling to mind M.Ward) and heart on sleeve lyrics all mark Scotland’s Admiral Fallow out for the kind of critical recognition most can only dream of. One of the hits of last year’s SXSW Festival, latest album Tree Bursts In Snow has only augmented their position as indie darlings in waiting.

Wednesday – Chilly Gonzales 8pm @ The Capstone Theatre £13

Land on Chilly Gonzales’ website and your stay is accompanied beautifully with a gorgeous piece of piano, giving a sense of the man’s work and of new record Solo Piano II, which you’d expect will make up the lion’s share of live performances. Without gushing, it’s hard to put into words the expectation of how this will all sound in the 274 capacity Capstone Theatre.

Friday – Ark: An Exposition of Liverpool Electronica 7pm @ Drop the Dumbells £5

“ARK aims to be the night where musicians and audiences meet and support a new aesthetic of live dance acts in Liverpool”, so say Deep Hedonia (their first show was Laurel Halo, whose Quarantine record is making appearances on album of the year lists), the team behind this extravaganza of underground musicians, featuring Heatsick, Yola Fatoush and Bantam Lions.

Sunday – Inprint Liverpool Print Fair 12pm @ The Shipping Forecast

Featuring “some of the best creative talent in Liverpool”, Inprint is a brand new independent print fair organised by Graphic Design students Holly Gleave, Chloe Adams (both JMU) and Emily Briselden-Waters (Manchester Met.). Amongst other things, there will be zines, prints, cards and badges to spend your hard-earned on, and with Christmas just around the corner, now might be the time to bag that special someone a limited edition pressie. There’s also the added bonus of it sitting alongside Percy Gullivers.
