ABOUT THE 2UBE:
“There is still a shortage of live music on our terrestrial screens so
something like The 2Ube live from LIPA is a fabulous idea, not only does
it give the students real industry skills in producing live Television
but also offers a platform for emerging music to get seen by a wider
audience." Dave Monks, BBC Radio Merseyside
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 describes the event as "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."
On February 6th and March 20th, the show 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 which
is set to attract viewers to its live stream from all over the world.
This year The 2Ube Extra Festival begins on April 15th and runs until
April 23rd, featuring four bands each night, 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

The Hazel Empire - Colours
Inspired by everything from Balkan beats to African choirs, The Hazel
Empire writes world infused folk/pop layered with harmonies.

Hazel Empire are remarkably tight live. Bringing in different vocal
identities from their three separate countries they merge into one,
creating a unique sound.

and northern soul. With an extraordinary five piece band, she has found
her own unique sound.

From hypnotic drumbeats to innocent piano pop, everyone can find
something personal and intimate in her music.

guitars and new recruit Mr. Torben John Plumstead Schmidt-Hansen on the

These guys like a mistress will have you begging for more." Shabhoc Music and Media
