IT’S a hometown gig at Revolver on Saturday for one member of a tribute band not known for its subtlety.
Dressed To Kill, probably the most popular KISS tribute band around, is back in Wirral for another night of monochromatic make-up, platform boots, fire-breathing, blood-spitting, and full-on pyrotechnics as the foursome recreate such classics as Crazy Crazy Nights, I Was Made For Lovin You, Detroit Rock City and God Gave Rock ‘n’ Roll To You II.
Member Ash Brookes won’t have far to travel for his post-gig Horlicks because he has relocated from the Midlands to nearby Oxton and this is the first performance on his new doorstep.
This is Dressed To Kill’s 23rd anniversary year and they’re always happy to see the Merseyside faithful at one of their gigs.
Revolver is in New Chester Road, Birkenhead.
Elsewhere in Wirral, the Refreshment Rooms in Rock Park, Rock Ferry, welcomes Brickhouse on Friday night (March 1) and – later this month – the same venue hosts a comedy night organised by Hot Water, the same team behind the successful events at the Crown Hotel in Lime Street in Liverpool city centre.
The giggles begin on Thursday, March 28 – make a date in your diary.
If you’re a fan of Alternative Radio, Rob and Alan Fennah are playing twice over the weekend.
This Saturday (March 2), they’re at The Queens in Liscard from 9.30pm and on Sunday, The Shippons in Irby welcomes the lads between 8.30pm and 11pm.
