Getintothis top five #15: most read music, gigs, features and stories of the week


The Getintothis top five stories of the week

It’s been non-stop at Getintothis HQ and as the day of rest is upon us Getintothis Will Whitby brings you the roundup of our top stories of the week.

As we run to the shop a third time to get a Lucozade to ride out the hangover from yesterday’s boss Deeper Cuts Festival, we really just must sit back and appreciate how much good music we have at the moment.

Big love to all the bands, venues, organisers and fans that made it down! My highlights were Buzzard, Buzzard, Buzzard and of course the mighty Teeth Of The Sea!

This week we’ve been getting misty-eyed at The National playing a drizzly Castlefield Bowl in Manchester, pop’s John Newman got intimate at Arts Club and big news as the boss people at EVOL are bringing dance stars BEAK> to Liverpool in December.

All of these wonderful shows can’t happen without the incredible venue network in Liverpool and we’ve been analysing the current situation surrounding our beloved music hideouts.

With Jimmy’s opening next months things are looking up but as Sound looks at threat of closure it could all get a lot darker. We dwelled on what could be done to help.

If you don’t want to leave the house but still fancy treating your eyes dive into our Singles Club #201 with the latest and best ditties from the likes of The Night Cafe, Flyte and Macclesfield’s finest Grimm Twins.

Elsewhere on the silver screen Getintothis’ wonderful film guru Chris Leathley has been celebrating the top films of the year so far.

Check out our guide for some you’ll know and others you might not with Rochrwachr’s Happy As Lazzaro, Denis’ High Life and many more. While you’re there be sure to enter our competition to win tickets to the illustrious music film season at Fact Picturehouse too!
