Anyone who has been out and about in Liverpool over the past five months can’t have failed to notice a very new, very pink magazine dedicated to the Liverpool music scene. Packed full of interviews, live reviews, music reviews, photos, and other features Bido Lito! has certainly made a huge impact already.
And after five issues they’ve decided it was about time they threw a party to celebrate what’s great about Liverpool in 2010!
Inside Pages: The Bido Lito! Magazine Launch features the best new music from across Liverpool, and an exhibition of photography and illustrations from the first five issues. In addition to the music, there will also be a local record shop, run in association with Probe Records, with all proceeds going to CALM. And there’s a free copy of Payper Tiger Records’ debut compilation for everyone attending, along with a gift bag with lots of goodies inside.
It’s all taking place on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd October at the Static Gallery on Roscoe Lane. The full line-up is quite broad as far as the musical styles go, but Friday night has a particular acoustic feel between 6.00pm and 7.00pm.
