Africa Oye is back this coming weekend and we are all hoping for good weather - I'll be dusting off my picknic blankets and getting the BBQ out and heading to Sefton Park for a fantastic weekend of Family Fun. I'll be sure to taste the delights of some of the best food stalls ever while soaking up some music from the UK's largest festival of African Music and Culture.
Last October Liverpool Acoustic held it's first Music Afternoon at Mathew Street’s View Two Gallery. And they had so much fun that they’ve decided to do it all over again!
This coming Saturday 9th June 2012 Liverpool Acoustic will be hosting a relaxed event featuring mainly open mic with a couple of booked guests thrown in for good measure. It’s all taking place in the View Two Gallery’s top floor performance space from 1.00pm to 4.00pm and is free to attend.
Musicians wanting to take part in the open mic can just turn up on the day – the spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The gallery opens at 12.00pm and closes at 5.00pm.

They won't thank me for saying so but they are featuring the fastest one man band who has appeared in chocolate comercials but also he has appeared in 24 no not the TV series but 24 Hours of Music created from Tweets and suggestions Live - you could tune in and watch on web Tv - I think it was Live Stream from Live at LICA Lancaster based arts organisation. Yep it is Pete "the god" Moser who is an awesome guy.
Like you, we care passionately about the arts and culture scene in Liverpool, so we thought we would put together a few suggestions of things to do this week and what's coming up soon. It is of course mostly what we're interested in but I hope you like them to.
