Bookworms beware the award winning Get It Loud In Libraries has announced a gig by one of the most exciting British bands around – The Blackout.

They have been confirmed to play at Lancaster Library on Wednesday 20th January with support from Young Guns.

A forward thinking live programme of gigs by fresh, new, emerging acts sprinkled with the odd classic band staged in public libraries across the UK are set to rock and shock stuffy librarians.

The aim is simple: to present the future today in libraries; to connect young people back into libraries through great new music; to place libraries squarely on the pop culture map.

Previous shows include Juliette Lewis, Los Campesinos!, Miike Snow, British Sea Power, Florence & The Machine, Mr Hudson, Bat For Lashes, Noah and the Whale, + many more).

Get It Loud In Libraries encourage young people to front the shows, run all media (film, photography, radio broadcasts), run FOH, shadow sound technicians, oversee lighting, ticket sales, artwork for the shows, stage set up the shows of the future.
