It’s another busy month for Liverpool Acoustic with the launch of the third Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge taking place during the Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon (7th), the return of Jon Gomm (12th), and a cracking lineup for our regular Liverpool Acoustic Live (27th). And as if that wasn’t enough to keep us busy, we’ve got the start of our brand new weekly Liverpool Acoustic Open Mic at Sound Food and Drink. Phew!
Liverpool Acoustic is joining forces with Sound Food and Drink on Duke Street to bring you a new, weekly open mic night starting on Monday 2nd September. It’s free to attend, and performers get a free drink. The night will also feature a number of booked acts too. It takes place every Monday from 8pm to midnight, and if performers want to book a slot they can either turn up early or ask on the facebook event.
The Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Challenge 2013 launches on the afternoon of Saturday 7th September between 1pm and 4pm at the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street.
This is taking place at the same time as our semi-regular Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon which sees three booked acts plus first-come, first-served open mic slots.
We’ll have full details on the Liverpool Acoustic website in the next couple of days, and all the details (including how to enter and a copy of the rules) can be found at challenge.liverpoolacoustic.co.uk
Jon Gomm returns to Liverpool on Thursday 12th September as part of his Secrets Nobody Keeps UK tour. The gig is taking place at LEAF on Bold St and features support from poet Klandestine (Tom Kwei). Doors open at 7.30pm and the event kicks off at 8.00pm. And just in case you were wondering, sorry but there are no tickets left.
Liverpool Acoustic Live this month sees one of our best lineups for a long time with Jo Bywater launching her new EP Chasing Tales alongside Liverpool Music Awards nominee Anna Corcoran, Chester-based dynamic duo Me and Deboe, and Manchester’s sweetheart Little Sparrow.
It all takes place at the View Two Gallery on the evening of Friday 27th September 2013.
Tickets are available in advance for £5 from wegottickets.com/liverpoolacoustic or for £6 on the night. Doors open at the new time of 7.45pm, with the new start time of 8.15pm and a finishing time of 10.45pm.
