The Baltic Triangle is literally the place to be. With the likes of Camp & Furnace, Elevator & Haus already some of the coolest venues in town all located in this area, the latest is District. Last night yet another exciting event was being held in this part of town.
District is located on Jordan Street, in the heart of the Baltic Triangle and keeps with the same converted warehouse feel. It’s a lot warmer on the inside than on the outside and a great space. Dark interiors with plants and the coolest skulls made out of old milk cartons lining up on the shelves around the place. It oozes cool, which makes it the perfect venue for another Milk;Presents event.Milk;Presents started out as a record label and then become so much more. After setting up the label they threw a huge party to celebrate and that party was so legendary that they’ve kept throwing them ever since. They have pulled off yet another brilliant night with arguably two of Liverpool’s best up and coming bands; Broken Men and The Dirty Rivers.
The night started off with some new local bands; Adam Bray, Natives & Rowan Reid who all performed energetic sets which went down well with the increasingly packed District crowd. Milk;Presents once again providing some of the best young talent in the city with an opportunity to shine. The Oxygen Thieves, well established on the Liverpool music scene played a strong set as the night really started to get rocking.
One band who we were really looking forward to seeing live again were Broken Men, after first discovering them at the X&Y Festival in Liverpool earlier this year and again at FestEVOL they have a distinctive rock sound that’s hard to ignore. Their set seemed to pass far too quickly and they are a band we’ll never tire of watching live.
The headliners of the night are probably one of Liverpool’s most exciting and promising young bands. After a slight technical problem at the start of the set they bombarded the crowd with an electrifying performance that got stronger with each song, building to a massive ending to what was another hugely successful night of live music from some top local bands.
Milk Presents yet again prove that they know how to throw the best nights in the city.
