Live 50 Party

batala liverpoolLive Magazine held a party at Newz bar last to celebrate not only Christmas but the publication of their 50th issue. Congratulations guys.
I admit I had my doubts when it was re-launched as a weekly what’s on guide. A lot of less ambitious free magazines have come and gone but this small team somehow produce, print & distribute a quality mag every week. Of course, I help by providing the art listings.
Anyway, I got to the party early and was delighted to see the Batala Liverpool Samba Band outside, they later performed inside too which was a welcome break from the dj’s uninspiring selection of sounds. Apparently Batala want to expand from 20 to 50 members so if you are interested in joining contact Ritchie Tunstall You need to be pretty fit though so that rules me out. See the article in this weeks Live. I won’t mention Live’s website as its so embarrassingly out of date!
