Dirtblonde will be playing a FREE, acoustic gig that’ll coincide with the Brazilica festival in Liverpool. No, this is NOT part of Brazilica festival… not even part of the official fringe events for Brazilica. This is strictly “Off-Brazilica”. This is… the “fringe of the fringe”, and you can’t miss it!
It’s great that there’s a Brazilian festival in Liverpool. Brazil is cool! But as Dirtblonde’s very own Ivan can show, Brazil is not just about Samba and football, so we decided to give a Brazilian spin to our next gig (at Tabac on Bold st.) when we found out it’d coincide with the Brazilica Festival in Liverpool.
Dirtblonde (the only guitar band in Liverpool with a Brazilian person, btw) will be playing a rare, acoustic set, full of songs we don’t normally play live, such as Broken Glass:
We also decided to invite our friends Bird to play. This up-and-coming Liverpool band are returning with a new lineup and are sounding better than ever, so they’re well worth watching! And, to keep up with the Brazilian spirit of the weekend, we decided to give a Brazilian flavour to the proceedings:
- On the big screen, we’ll be showing Brazilian ‘Cinema Novo’ films from the 60s – the Brazilian equivalent of the French and English ‘New Wave’ of the time, which rarely get a showing in Britain!
- There’ll be a 5-minute Portuguese lesson, so you can pretend to be a real native from Rio!
- And during the whole event, we’ll be playing relaxing sounds from the rainforest…
- Also, there’ll be FREE mix CDs compiled by Ivan, with a ‘Best Of ‘ the Brazilian music from the past 50 years, for the first 20 persons to arrive.
Space is limited so make sure to get there early and guarantee your place and free CD!
