If you're looking for ideas for your next date night, there's plenty going on at Liverpool's LEAF on Bold Street from live music to life drawing.
BEN OTTEWELL LIVE
Thursday 5th March / 19:30 - 23:30 / £16.75
Former Gomez frontman returns to Liverpool for an intimate gig. Following last year's stunning performance at the Unitarian Church, Ullet Road, Ben returns for a night of acoustic blues melody, shot through with his trademark, scratched baritone voice. There's much beauty to behold here, from his solo work right back to one or two Gomez classics. Reid Anderson joins Ben as special guest.

GIG: NAP EYES
Thursday 16th April / 20:00 - 23:00 / £11
Eight years and four albums into it, the artistic arc of Nap Eyes continues. With each new release, an incremental and invigorating step forward.

Now, Snapshot of a Beginner is Nap Eyes's boldest, most concentrated and most hi-fi album to date, a study of that repeated return and all that it can teach you.
