I'm going to see The Smyths in a day long Smiths convention, (I though woobaloozah might suck you in a bit) on the 29th April. Anyone going to see it ?

If you are
stanyewest@hotmail.co.uk
should be good I'm going with a young lady and I reckon I might enjoy it, <a href="http://www.thesmyths.net/" target="_blank">Smyths</a> if you are interested.

Should be fun like I say I'll put up a picture of me and my lady companion sometime soon so you know what to look out for if you see us, taking train from Winsford, if anyone knows anything about trains in the area or about Liverpool could you tell me nice places to have something to eat and pubs that don't ID, also how close is Cavern to the trainstation, when is the last train back?

Hiya! I know about this smyths convention, was planning on going myself as i'm in the area but unfortuantely i'm broke :(

however i can hopefully give you a bit o' help about l'pool, trains in the area:

there are four main station, liverpool central, lime street, james street and moorfields. to get to the cavern the nearest one is probably james street :] some nice places to eat are the ha-ha bar (:P) in the albert docks, the egg cafe (a vegetarian cafe) near bold street (which is just outside of central station), i'm sure if you ask miserableliar he'll also be able to help as i don't eat out much in liverpool.

The cavern from james street is about a 5 minute walk. get out of the station and turn left, follow the road right down until home and bargains is on your right, there's a turning on the left- go down it and into the big glass shopping area 'the cavern walks' and i can't qutie remember exactly how i got there from there, but just ask someone- i remember you had to go through one of the shops there to get to the club.

last train back i'm not sure about, i think it's about 11 or 12. maybe check with matt again for that :]

Right from Winsford I am....Getting the 10:30 train to somewhere then walk from that station to another and take the train to Moorfields then go the Cavern, though I am willing to take your advice as well, I will have an hour to kill basically when I get there so don't know what to do.

B) B) B) Well up for it, btw to everyone my hair is a lot longer and worse now. It seems to want to be too big for my head no matter how much I have it cut which gives me a Swedish Mr T. look.

so... ol' stanye must have been/still be there. goes on till 2am, can't believe it! well, me and emma went down to the cavern at 12 and took pictures of me looking sad by the giant poster. and then some weird touristy men who'd been taking photos of the beatles shop started taking pictures of me which was slightly unnvering, so i changed my pose to more 'shocked' than pretending to cry. still... i'm so annoyed i couldn't go! by the way james, when you get back, i hope you ddn't have too much trouble with the trains cause we got stuck at james street first for 20 minutes, then got stuck at hamilton square for the same time, and ended up having to get my dad to pick us up. i don't know what was going onbut they were utterly shite. hope the line wasn't funny where you were getting it!

THE SMYTHS PLAYED SMITHS SONGS ALL DAY AND I MISSED IT! : (
