Don’t you just love technology? It’s great when it’s working properly, but when it decides to not work properly it can be one of the most frustrating things we have to cope with in our daily lives.
Why are we telling you all this? Well, it seems that the email and feed system that publishes our blog items then emails them out to subscribers has gone a bit… er… screwy (we think that’s the technical term). It seems that some people didn’t receive the last post about how Acousticfest in Manchester is booking artists for its special festivals throughout the year. Not only that, some of you instead received an email containing every single Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight posting since last year. All we can do is apologise. We can’t promise it won’t happen again, but we’re busy trying to work out why it happened so we can fix things if possible. Anyone got a spanner?
(Update 15/4/09 – Still baffled by the problems. Posting this again in the vein hope that it will all work fine this time…)
In the mean time, we’ve republished the Acousticfest news below.

We’ve also got news about a festival here in Liverpool that is looking for artists to appear on stage. Colin Dorricott sent a message to the members of L1 Festival 2009 group on facebook, and we’ve very kindly copied and pasted it below. As for the Acousticfest gigs, don’t email us – email them!

Liverpool Acoustic is the only website of its kind in the UK. It was founded by Graham Holland in April 2008 as a central resource for the vibrant and exciting acoustic music scene in Liverpool and the Greater Merseyside area. The website publishes news from the local acoustic music scene, previews of upcoming events, reviews of music releases and gigs, and the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight podcast. This content is available for free via email subscription. The diary lists acoustic events including festivals, theatre concerts, folk clubs, showcases and open mic nights.
