Every month Liverpool Acoustic brings its regular Liverpool Acoustic Live event to the View Two Gallery, featuring musicians from the local music scene alongside nationally and internationally recognised artists. That’s all fine and dandy, but what happens when we want to book an amazing band (or two) and they can’t make the regular fourth Friday of the month? Why, we put on an extra gig, inventively called Liverpool Acoustic eXtra, that’s what!
And so tonight, Friday 9th March 2012, Liverpool Acoustic presents one of our favourite local bands Bird, one of our favourite national bands The Sea Kings, and one of our favourite local singer-songwriters Thom Morecroft.
Anyone with even the slightest passing interest in the Liverpool music scene over the past twelve months couldn’t have failed to notice the rise of local atmospheric folk band Bird so when we got the chance to book them we jumped at the chance. We were equally chuffed that the date of the gig coincided with a visit to the north west of London-based band of Cornish musicians The Sea Kings whose tight harmonies have to be heard to be believed.
Tickets for this event will remain on sale at wegottickets.com/liverpoolacoustic until 6pm tonight unless they sell out beforehand. After that entry will be £6 on the door when they open at 8pm but limited to the first 20 people.
The music starts at 8.30pm and runs through to just after 11pm.
Liverpool Acoustic is the only website of its kind in the UK. It was created 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. It contains an extensive diary of acoustic events, from festivals, theatre concerts and folk clubs to showcases and open mic nights. The News and Reviews service is available as a free email subscription and carries previews of upcoming events, reviews of music releases and gigs, the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight podcast, and a newsletter on the first of each month.
