Mellowtone’s first venture of 2011 hits town on Thursday 26th January when one of Liverpool’s best Americana and Rockabilly outfits Mike Badger and the Shady Trio headline the gig at The Shipping Forecast on Slater Street.
Support is from Copenhagen’s Billie Van, and top Liverpool bluesman SJ Downes. Plus the ever-reliable Beaten Tracks DJs will be spinning tunes between guests.
Doors open at 7.45pm and it’s only £4 on the door.
The Mellowtone guys are so excited to be getting back into the swing of things that they’re offering a pair of tickets free to one lucky Liverpool Acoustic reader. All you have to do is email email@example.com with the answer to this question.
Mike Badger’s new album Rogue State is a tribute to which music legend who died in December?
