Rathole Roadshow 2012

Written by
Rathole RadioTonight it's the Rathole Roadshow @leafteashop and it will be one of the most engaging performances in Liverpool for a long time. Not only is it FREE but there is going to be enough technology in the room to sink a small battleship.  I was asked earlier on Twitter what I meant by saying it was going to enage an online audience so I'll go into those details now.  
The whole gig is going to be Live Streamed across the internet, the video will be streamed using Ustream and the audio will also be streamed, but that's not the bit that makes it exciting for me. What makes it truly engaging is that you can respond to the performances as you hear them via twitter and via the IRC or Internet Chat Room - nothing new there either really. But if you connect the twiiter stream to a couple of little gadgets one called @bubblino and the other simply called Audiencebot then this is something else, @bubblino will blow bubbles everytime he reads the hashtag #RR2012 in the Twitter Streeam and then the Audiencebot will bang his drum adding to the general applause giving the band direct feedback about how their performance is from the online audience. NOW THAT'S ENGAGEMENT FOR YOU
Over the forthcoming weeks in Liverpool there are loads of gigs laid on for Sound City and even a Conference of some sort but the one thing we won't see is a live video stream and the opportunity to give direct feedback. 

You can read the press release below about Rathole Radio.


Liverpool music legend Ian McCulloch has revealed plans to play two intimate acoustic shows in Liverpool on 10 and 11 May, and becoming the first official act to perform at the newEpstein Theatre (formerly The Neptune).

The shows lead up to the release of Ian McCulloch’s fourth solo album called “Pro Patria Mori”.  McCulloch will be showcasing songs like ’Different Trees’, ‘Lift Me Up’ and ‘Watch Me Land’ from his forthcoming album, along with classic Echo and the Bunnymen songs and other solo tracks from the albums ‘Candleland’, ‘Mysterio’ and ‘Slidling’”.
