WHAT TO DO

The younger, cooler, listens-to-bands-you-haven’t-heard-of brother of the brilliant Borderlines Film Festival -  B2 Festival – is taking over Hereford for its debut this weekend. There are double features, triple features, trip-hop nights and docos about the Andy Warhol of polkadots.

You can read all about it here. Or, just buy a ticket for the 2004 remake of the classic Zombies Take Over A Shopping Mall horror film Dawn of the Dead, which is being screened tonight, at 9pm in the Maylord’s shopping mall.

Now, like fashion lines and organised sports, beers have a season. One of the best craft breweries in the world, Cloudwater (from just up the M6 in Manchester) put out an Autumn/Winter collection, with a flavour profile presumably designed precisely to accentuate the changing leaves, fresh air and endless jumper-wearing of an October weekend.  They’ve even got one called “…And Getting Caught In The Rain”.

Hereford Beer House, who have previously hosted the Cloudwater Crew at their West St taphouse, are doing an impromptu tap takeover on Saturday night. There’s going to be six CW beers pouring, and 16 more in the fridge, all housed in suitably autumnal cans. And don’t worry, just because it’s cold out, that doesn’t mean these are all eight percent stouts that stand up without the glass – there’s everything from pale ales and (porters) to a Vienna lager.

For more info, give HBH a shout on Insta here – they’re open until 10pm, and 9pm tomorrow if they’ve got any left after tonight.

WHERE TO PARTY

You’ve heard of The Hacienda, right? Well the guys spinning at the Left Bank on Saturday could describe to you the inside of its DJ booth in intimate detail. Or maybe they couldn’t. It was after all one of those, If You Can Remember It You Weren’t Really There scenes.

A scene it was though, and Jon Da Silva and Allister Whitehead were among those who found themselves in the middle of it. They share a bill with another legend of the game - and former Mixmag #1 DJ - Jeremy Healy - for a night with appropriately-nostalgic name, Déjà vu. It looks to be one helluva throwback party, conducted be three men who know a thing or two about how to get one rocking.

Tickets are available online here, or on the door if not sold out – and it goes from 7pm – 3am.
