Thanks to everyone who came down to support Only Child’s album launch last month at the Music Room. This month sees another album launch, this time with Derek King back at the View Two Gallery. Also at the Mathew Street venue is another Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon to help ease us into the summer months. What’s not to like about that?
Our weekly Liverpool Acoustic Open Mic continues in it’s temporary home The Baltic Social. Hosted by Liverpool Acoustic’s Three Minute Hero (Stuart Todd) and K’s Choice Acoustic’s (Derek King) the night starts at the earlier time of 8.00pm, runs through to 11.00pm, and features one or two booked acts alongside the open mic. Musicians wishing to reserve an open mic slot can either turn up early and add their name to the list or request a slot online by posting on the facebook event page at facebook.com/liverpoolacoustic/events
Our popular Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon returns to the View Two Gallery on Mathew Street on Saturday 11th June from 1.00pm to 4.00pm. We’ve got our familiar mix of booked guests and open mic slots, so why not come along and bring the family for a relaxing afternoon of live music? The first confirmed guest is young singer-songwriter Megan Louise.
This month’s Liverpool Acoustic Live is taking place on Friday 17th June, a week earlier than normal, and features the launch of Derek King’s brand new album ‘Seasons’. Well known as the man behind K’s Choice and co-host of our weekly open mic, Derek will be performing songs from his new album along with favourites from his back catalogue.
Support is provided by Nicola Hardman who impressed everyone at last year’s Halloween Special.
Completing the lineup is local folk rock band Gary Maginnis and the Like.
Advance tickets for the night from wegottickets.com/liverpoolacoustic are £5 (+50p) for just entry, or £8 (+80p) for entry and a copy of the album on CD. Entry on the door on the night is our regular £6.
Doors open at 7.45pm and the music kicks off at 8.15pm.
Here’s a selection of some of the acoustic events taking place this month.
