Coffee and Turntables is a series of cafe-based daytime parties brought to you by Ivan Thunders (Not Deaf Yet) and Peter (Old Rope) along with regular guest DJs. We do short seasonal residencies in cafes and eateries around Liverpool, usually on Saturday afternoons, with some special bonus evening events.
It started life as a weekly DJ party on Jamaica Street, in Liverpool’s trendy Baltic Triangle, during Summer 2018. We brought sunny vibes every Saturday afternoon for 11 weeks outside the then-new 92 Degrees pop-up cafe (now called The Baltic Roastery), hence the “Coffee” of our event’s name – the “Turntables” comes from the fact we only play vinyl. You know the famous Liver Bird wings graffiti? It was near there. You know the mural of Jurgen Klopp? It was opposite that. We made that spot so cool they decided it was the only place for their street art. Maybe. The sun was pretty hot that year and it may have gone to our heads.
The second residency was in the cosy and warm Lovelocks Coffee Shop across town in Old Haymarket (by the Queensway Tunnel), spinning records over November and December and capped with a special Christmas and Turntables edition.
We have lots of other exciting venues lined up for the year and we’d love to see you at one of our events. They are usually child-friendly and great for families, hungover meet-ups or just anyone who wants to make some new friends.
Hope to see you soon! Ivan & Peter
