This is the moment the regulars pop over to see who’s back and when they are playing, and to begin research on the artists we aren’t familiar with. May isn’t far away and logistics need working out.
IPO Liverpool is one of my favourite times of year, it’s right up there with Christmas. It means there’s a large amount of friends in the city and there’s a whole bunch of music to enjoy.
I am ducking out of the Saturday of the event this year, but I do have a note from my mum. This means I’ll miss seeing a few acts I would normally be there for. However the Minty and The Beeb Go Gigging Blog offers fabulous reports on the whole shebang every year.
Looking back over last year’s posts from the event, they ended up a little ramshackle as I tried to “live blog” events. I totally plan on trying this again! Apologies in advance for that! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, take a glance at the posts from May last year. I shall endeavour to be a little more detailed this year. I may even take notes.
