With just under a month before Jon Gomm’s UK tour hits LEAF on Bold St on Thursday 12th September we thought it was about time we gave you some important updates.
IMPORTANT UPDATE #1 – TICKETS
As of today (14th August) there are only 17 tickets left for sale at seetickets.com – no more will be made available once these are sold, so if you want to come along then you should get your ticket as soon as possible. This gig WILL be a sell out, and there will be NO entry to people wanting to pay on the door on the night. You’ve been warned! UPDATE 21ST AUGUST – THIS GIG IS NOW SOLD OUT
IMPORTANT UPDATE #2 – SUPPORT
Thank you to everyone who posted links to their music or performances on the official facebook event page following our news item about it in June. Jon listened to every single person who expressed an interest and in the end chose Klandestine to open for him. Klandestine is Tom Kwei, a performance poet from Birmingham who’s currently living in Liverpool. Coming to the art of performance poetry from an interest in hip hop his pieces are dense and lyrical, exploring everything from the aftermath of a relationship breakup to the creation of new words. Tom performs regularly around the country and this month is competing in the 2013 Roundhouse Poetry Slam. Check out Klandestine’s videos at youtube.com/user/Klandestine9/videos
IMPORTANT UPDATE #3 – NEW ALBUM
Those of you who follow Jon Gomm on his mailing list, facebook page and twitter account will know that he recently launched a pledgemusic campaign to fund the recording of his already-written next album Secrets Nobody Keeps. We’re delighted to announce that yesterday (only 22 days after launching) the campaign reached its goal and the new album now has 100% of its funding. The campaign is still active, so it’s not too late to claim some of the cool rewards, including a pre-ordered copy of the new album. Visit the site for more details pledgemusic.com/projects/jongomm
Update on Jon Gomm’s Liverpool date this September
Liverpool Acoustic is the only website of its kind in the UK. It was founded 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. The website publishes news from the local acoustic music scene, previews of upcoming events, reviews of music releases and gigs, and the Liverpool Acoustic Spotlight podcast. This content is available for free via email subscription. The diary lists acoustic events including festivals, theatre concerts, folk clubs, showcases and open mic nights.
