AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts, co-founded by one of the city's most celebrated sons Paul McCartney, is launching The 2Ube, an eclectic showcase of musical talent from across the north west.



Every Friday we'll be sending out a track from a band who is playing the weekly showcase as well as appearing on the live streamed 2Ube Extra festival in spring 2015.

The 2Ube selects the most exciting bands on the north west's music scene.  Some bands have members who attend LIPA, others are scouted by the team behind the project, who are hoping to do justice to the memory of John Peel by choosing the most innovative, diverse and exciting bands in the region.

22 January 2015

Offering an unrivalled opportunity to see discover the most exciting emerging artists active on Liverpool's vibrant music scene right now, we are delighted to present The 2Ube.

Based in LIPA Cafe, Liverpool Insititute for the Performing Arts, Mount Street, Liverpool, The 2Ube's weekly showcase takes place each Friday from 5-7pm. The event features a diverse range of bands from across the north west and takes inspiration from its iconic eighties namesake, the Channel Four Television programme, The Tube.  

Keith Mullin of Liverpool band The Farm is a music lecturer at Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts and the driving force behing The 2Ube.  He says "The 2Ube is a bastion of cultural diversity, a great breeding ground for new acts, in many ways it adopts a John Peel approach to music, not specialist or genre specific, in that, you never know what you’re going to get." 

Media outlets are welcome to attend The 2Ube in order to review and interview any of the artists appearing.  Some of these weekly shows will be live streamed on a designated YouTube channel, attracting viewers from all over the world as we gear up for the main event, the annual 2Ube Extra Festival.  

This year The 2Ube Extra Festival begins in April and for three weeks will feature four bands each evening, together with exclusive interviews and performances with some of the most respected figures in the music industry.

Some of the bands appearing on The 2Ube and The 2Ube Extra have already been featured by regional and national media, others are ready to be discovered; all are incredibly talented, innovative and exciting prospects.

Each week we'll introduce you to a couple of the acts you can look forward to seeing at the weekly Lipa cafe events as well as The 2Ube Extra Festival.  This week we'll start with Tiger Factory, a hip hop/rock band combining smooth melodies, bouncy melodies and high energy live performances.  They play the cafe next week on Friday Jan 30th.
