I'M a bit late mentioning this, but I had a most memorable split-location social evening last Thursday ... in Wigan and New Brighton.
First the Wigan bit. I was at a venue that combined bohemian decadence with blunt, Northern English humour - a winning combination.
IT WAS a strange evening I had in Liverpool as a performer at the Come Strut Your Stuff night at the city centre Egg café.
It's an established acoustic performance night but it has a strained atmosphere, with its unstable mix of young students, arty types, militant vegetarians, mad medievalists, anarchists, miserable 'wimmin' singers and old codgers doing covers.
