Getintothis top five #40: most read music, gigs, features and stories of the week


The Getintothis top five stories of the week

At the climax of yet another week, GetintothisWill Whitby brings you the roundup of the top stories and gigs.

First things first, Happy New Year from all of us here at Getintothis. We hope you have a brilliant 2020 filled with lots of boss music and good times. We hope you can stick around for the ride with us here as well. 

What did everyone get up to this New Year? Did you manage to get down to Jimmys on NYE to see Red Rum Club bring the noise into 2020? We did and it was spectacular! 

We’ve been enjoying ourselves over the festive period.

Plenty of mince pies have been eaten, beers have been drank and plenty of boss music has been consumed as well.

But what happens when the latter two meet? Bands love putting out their own beer and it pains us to say that we had the very hard job (trust me) of tasting them all.

Our go-to beer baron Will Neville has done all the hard work so you don’t have to here

Dr Who was back on our screens as the Time Lord is back to mystify our weekends. Did you see it?

We’ll save you the spoilers for now but check out our review and see what you think. Elsewhere on the big screen, we dove into our collection of film reviews over the last 12 months to find out our film of 2019.

New Year can be considered a time for reflection and I’m sure we’ve all been debating our best albums and moments of 2019 before the new decade. We compiled a number of lists asking the highlights of the year from people across Liverpool music and beyond. Check them out here:
