Liverpool International Music Festival is set to explore punk and counter cultural thought with new project From Eric’s To Evol.
The project unites a series of carefully curated events, featuring panels, archive material, and more. The title perhaps offers a clue: Eric’s hosted some of Liverpool’s most vital punk, new wave, and post-punk events, while Evol was a prominent force in the city’s present day scene.
The performances and panels will boast appearances from Clinic, The Lightning Seeds, and more, exploring the impact punk left on Liverpool and how the city’s counter cultural leanings are expressed.
