Here at Liverpool Acoustic HQ we’ve been asked some ‘big questions’ by followers of the News and Reviews page and mailing list, so we thought it only right to try to answer them to the best of our ability.
Question 1 – What the heck’s happening with The Acoustic Revolution? You’ve plugged it twice, and it’s failed to happen on both occasions.
Answer – It’s cancelled.
Question 2 – Why is it cancelled?
Answer – The people who visited and were disappointed were told that it was cancelled because the event organiser had left. Unfortunately staff at Revolution Bar Albert Dock told Liverpool Acoustic a different story when we phoned last week, which is why we reported that the event was still on.
Question 3 – Why did you give so much space to an event being run by a large company like this when there are so many smaller, independent events and venues that deserve the exposure and publicity more?
Answer – Because the event was new, and we like to support the new events to help them get off the ground, regardless of the venue. However, if there’s a regular event that you think should get a special mention on the News and Reviews page and mailing list then all you need to do is ask and we’d be happy to oblige. Simply drop us a line using the Contact Us page and we’ll see what we can do.
In conclusion, there’s a lesson to be learned here… we’re just not too sure what it is.
What we do know, however, is that the revolution is definitely over, and we’ve removed the previous two news items to avoid further confusion.
And to help us lay to rest this sorry episode what better than a song called The Revolution Is Over by Finnish death pop masters Karoshi Lovers. (Apparently, Karoshi is Japanese for ‘death by over-work’ – we’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions…)
