OK, so you’ve been out to a cracking acoustic event every night of the week since Sunday.
It’s now Friday so tonight you’ll go out to Music@Mocha or the Eggy Jam.
But afterwards you’ll find yourself lying in bed wondering how you’re going to fill your Saturday night. The thought of either the Eurovision Dance Contest on BBC1 or X Factor on ITV1 (& ITV3 & online…) sends you into a cold sweat. (Come on, admit it. You need your daily fix of acoustic music just as much as the next acoustic aficionado!)
Then worry no more for Acoustic Bliss is here!
Acoustic Bliss is a new weekly acoustic event from Sue Cullen, the woman behind Acoustic Dream.
It’s taking place every Saturday* at the Blackburne Arms Hotel, Catharine Street, and starts at 9.00pm. There is a 1.00am bar and entry is free.
Any acoustic artists interested in signing up to play in a relaxed setting can email suecullen[at]merseymail.com or message her via MySpace
Saturday 6th September is the opening night and playing are Laney Murphy and Ian Lewis, Zakk Hartley and Ned Murphy
*Did you see the asterisk next to the ‘every Saturday’ bit? That’s because once every three months or so the Acoustic Bliss gives way for the return of Acoustic Dream at The Zanzibar. And it just so happens the next one is on Saturday 27th September. All monies from these gigs is donated to the Walton Neurological Centre and aim to raise awareness of dystonia. More details are available from the MySpace profile above.
