Apparently it’s the most wonderful time of the year, and who are we to disagree with Andy Williams? December 2013 brings seasonal cheer and festive fun in the form of the Liverpool Acoustic Christmas Party, Kerfuffle at The Epstein, Stephen Langstaff at EVAC, and much more. Not a turkey amongst them!
Liverpool Acoustic Open Mic takes place every Monday evening at Sound Food and Drink on Duke Street. To make things easier we’ve recently introduced some guidelines for performers.
1. Bring your instrument with you or you don’t play
2. You go on at the agreed time and stick to it
3. Open mic performers can play no more than three songs
4. Either book your slot online (on the facebook event page) or arrive early (from 8pm) to put your name on the list
5. If you arrive after 9pm you won’t get to play unless you’ve booked online
6. No bands unless we’ve booked you
7. We start the music from 8.30pm on the dot
8. A free drink for everyone who plays
We hope this helps to clarify things for people who are looking to play.
