National music event in Liverpool next week

SOME of Merseyside’s most talented young musicians will take part in a national music event this Thursday (March 30) at Liverpool’s Art’s Club on Seel Street. Noise Live is part of Youth Music’s Give a Gig Week, a national initiative to raise money to provide music activities for young people in challenging circumstances. It will feature some of the best new music talent coming out of the Merseyside Youth Association’s Noise project, featuring Liverpool grime star C-Two, bands Filthy Janes and Blackstar, and Bootle-based singer-songwriter Charlotte Jones. Headliner C-Two has recently had radio airplay on BBC 1xtra as well as winning a prestigious place on BBC 1xtra’s playlist panel, thanks to his involvement with Noise. Project coordinator Garth Jones says: “The nature of working with young musicians is that they grow up and move on. The worry sometimes is who will take their place. “Thankfully, in Merseyside there is never a problem finding new musical talent – there’s just something in the water. “This event presents the best young musicians coming through the Noise project right now. Each act has been selected for their talent, dedication and readiness to raise the roof. “From rock to grime, with loads in between, this event gives Merseyside’s most promising new artists a chance to steal the stage at one of Liverpool’s best music venues. “The event also gives our young musicians a chance to raise money for the project, and for young musicians across the country, as part of Youth Music’s national Give A Gig Week.” Tickets cost £4, with half the proceeds going to Youth Music and half going to Noise.   Show details; What: Noise Live When: Thursday March 30th Where: Arts Club, Seel Street Liverpool Who: C-Two, Filthy Janes, Blackstar, Charlotte Jones What time: 7pm doors, curfew 10pm How much: £4 Age: 16+
