Liverpool Acoustic eXtra returns for an extra slice of acoustic goodness on Friday 18th September.
Headlining the night at the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street is Joe Symes & the Loving Kind who’ll be playing a rare, stripped-back acoustic set in the intimate third floor performance space.
Support on the night is provided by duo Sunday Jones and local creative band Sonnenberg.
All in all, Joe Symes and the Loving Kind create the most realistic and compelling music. Outspoken and completely original, you just don’t get this opinionated power inside the music industry any more. We leave it up to the artists under the radar to create this compelling style of music, something which larger artists within the charts today don’t seem to touch upon, if at all. We need venom in a stylish, practical way, we have the whole package right here.
