Getintothis top five #18: most read music, gigs, features and stories of the week


The Getintothis top five stories of the week

Lots of festivals and new venues galore in this week’s round-up from Getintothis’ Will Whitby. 

Getintothis have been getting their wellies on this week as we’ve been up and down the country getting our fest-on. We’ve been to Kendal Calling and Deer Shed as this writer has been to Truck Festival.

This writer went to Truck and avoided all the rain that washed out the North.

Foals were boss at their Oxford homecoming and be sure to check out our review with the top 9 acts- find your new favourite band, mine was Swimming Girls.

We’re entering the tidal wave of announcements as bands announce big autumn and winter the second they step off their festival stage.

This week we’ve seen tours revealed from South Korea’s Say Sue Me, the twirly and wonky Black Country, New Road and a return to Liverpool for Jonathan Wilson with a special gig via Harvest Sun. Can someone hide my wallet away from me, please?

And of course, for all these shows we’re going to need a roof to play them under. This week has seen history celebrated, new ideas revealed and artistic creative communities strengthened within Liverpool.

The great Florrie in Dingle has revealed plans to celebrate its mighty 130th birthday with a street party later this month with some big acts on the bill- only a tenner to support a Scouse creative icon.

The new bar on the block Jimmy’s opened their doors at the bottom of Bold Street as we gained exclusive access to their opening parties with an intimate show from The Coral.

Liverpool Arts Bar also launched this week for a place for creatives to rub shoulders, make connections and put the next big plans in place. An exciting new venture just over the road from the Everyman.

We’re really spoilt for choice in Liverpool aren’t we?
