I spend the rest of my Saturday night on a musical pilgrimage of sorts, pub-hopping from the grungy The Zanzibar Club (Noel Gallagher, The Zutons and The Coral have all graced the stage here) to the experimental music and theatre venue Kazimer.

I walk down Mathew Street, where The Cavern Club stands, and past the legendary Nation, home of dance superclub Cream, which is credited with raising the bar for clubbing in the Nineties. Then it’s on to some other late night spots I only have a hazy recollection of...

Though I didn’t discover the next big thing during my weekend here, I sure as hell had a brilliant night out – Liverpool definitely manages to live up to it’s musical hype.
