Beats amongst the Bookshelves

Get it Loud in Libraries is coming to Blackpool, hosting Mush’s debut appearance on the library scene and bringing a touch of punk to the bookshelves of Blackpool. 

Performing tracks from their well-received album, ‘Lines Redacted‘, the leeds-based art-rock trio Mush brings tongue-in-cheek lyrics, memorable guitar riffs and a fresh 2021 perspective to the music scene. Described as “rallying against aggravating, absurd political realities with passion and humour” (Pitchfork), it’s no surprise that Mush has chosen to play such an unexpected venue as Blackpool Library. Get it Loud in Libraries are beyond excited to bring the band’s post-punk sounds to the library scene.

Get it WHAT in libraries?

Think libraries are just for silent reading? Not any more! Live music in local libraries gives audiences of all ages the rare chance to get up close and personal with their favourite acts. Get It Loud in Libraries has previously hosted a number of acclaimed musicians including Adele, Idles, Wolf Alice and Fontaines D.C.

Alongside this, GILIL operated the GILIL Academy which supports young people’s participation and talent development in creative and cultural activities.
