Liverpool Acoustic Afternoon


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.
