North Shore Troubdour, situated on Carlton Street just off the Great Howard Street dock road, is one of Liverpool’s coolest underground event venues. La Vida Liverpool has chosen North Shore Troubadour as the place to host its first ever Fiesta on Saturday 22nd December and we see it as an ideal place to host our colourful Christmas carnival. Owners Lynton and Laura and their team are genuinely good people who seriously know their music and as a result they are hugely respected as an events venue — particularly due to their top custom made sound system.

The guys over at North Shore Troubadour not only host some of the best underground events in the city — they make, repair, sell and hire out sound systems, speakers and music equipment. This technical expertise makes them an ideal place to host a music event — you can be assured that it will be operationally spot and immense acoustically. The warehouse on the outskirts of the city is an intimate venue, with two rooms and a circa. 500 capacity, and has that classic underground warehouse feel — raw, gritty and exactly how an underground venue should be, akin to those Detroit/Chicago house venues back in the day.

Here at La Vida Liverpool, we can’t wait to have our first ever party there and as a way of saying thank you to our wonderful hosts we’d like to showcase what they have coming up for the rest of 2018:

The Tea Street Band’s Christmas Party

Date: Sat 15th Dec

About: The Tea Street Band follow in the tradition of tunefully idiosyncratic Liverpool bands like The Coral, The Lightning Seeds, and Shack, though their blissful Electronica sounds like none of those bands. Rather, The Tea Street Band are closer to artists like Tunng and This Is The Kit, blending instrumentation with synths and beats. Like so many Liverpool artists, at the heart of The Tea Street Band is a keen ear for melody. Driven by propulsive hooks, their songs grab from the get-go, often building to a euphoric rush. Another free event, details to be confirmed.

Soma Sonic

Date: Fri 21st Dec

About: Prepare to step inside and become part of a living, breathing work of art as we once again push the boundaries of creativity. We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams.
