Our special Scouse night for Independent Venue Week features three brilliant new acts from Liverpool:

Kangaroos This year the band have really taken Liverpool by storm with spots at Sound City & Skeleton Coast Festival and supporting acts like The Coral & Peach Fuzz.

The band are somewhat of a Scouse supergroup with members of the band also lending hands to Tramp Attack, The Hushtones & The Blurred Sun Band and are currently recording in the legendary Parr Street Studios with the help of Skeleton Key Records. For fans of The Coral, Tramp Attack, Edgar Jones & The Zutons.

Katie Mac is a singer-songwriter from Huyton, Liverpool. Taking influence from Laura Marling, Joni Mitchell and Regina Spektor, she has also been compared to the likes of Patti Smith, PJ Harvey and Kate Bush.

Katie Mac released her first EP 'Believe' in August 2018. A second EP 'The Drive' is released in December 2019. Both EP’s have been produced by Sam Duckworth of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. Katie’s full band join her tonight.

Joe Slater Hailing from Croxteth, Liverpool and at just 23, Joe Slater delivers a smooth saturating blend of rock, blues and soul that is beyond his years. Joe’s songwriting and unique vocals take listeners on a journey comprised of energetic sing-alongs and anthemic ballads, full of interior and reflective moments that only the greats could inspire.

Line Up

Kangaroos are an English Merseybeat vocal harmony group based in Liverpool whose influences include elements of Doo Wop, Rock n Roll, Jazz and Surf Rock.

Their songwriting pedigree harks back to the golden age of pop music, when singles needed to concisely fit on a 7” vinyl record; to a time when radio was king.

Their songs will tug at your heartstrings, make you smile and run to the dance floor.
