It may be the start of the summer hols, but there’s no shortage of events to keep us going in August. There’s the Acoustic Air Raid returning for a second year, the Acoustic Stage at Liverpool’s first ever Pride event, the Mathew Street Fringe, plus lots of exciting gigs and open mic events.
Liverpool Acoustic is taking part in the Above the Beaten Track event which is returning for a third consecutive year. The last two have been so successful (too successful?) that it has outgrown its previous venue and has moved to The Bluecoat. More details below.
