A great weekend was had as I reminisce with a very welcomed cup of coffee in Oomo, Smithdown Rd….
This weekend was Threshold Festival, held in the Baltic Triangle of Liverpool. I had the pleasure of performing for Mellowtone on Thursday night for the festival press launch, my artwork prints were on display all weekend in the Blade Factory and I also performed a gig I loved in the cafe of the Nordic Church on Saturday early eve. Both gigs had great audiences and reminded me of the plus points of the Liverpool music scene. Much like last year it was a perfect setting for seeing artists all in the same places, ones that I don’t really see much because everyone is usually out gigging in different places. There’s a great spirit and energy and there’s nothing like having a long list of bands to go see whilst swanning around with beers in hand.
Threshold had to do a quick re-shuffle this year as the arranged venue of the CUC had announced its closing. When all is said and done, to manifest something of this size in such a last minute effort is an acheivement and a half. Hats off to Kaya, Chris and the rest of the festival crew. I hope it returns next year!
As for this week….I will be heading to LSU on Wednesday to perform live in session for Mr Ian D Hall’s radio show on ICON. Good times!
