Be Part of ‘The Beat Goes On’

Exhibition Myspace page launch

Local bands get the chance to be part of The Beat Goes On
National Museums Liverpool is inviting bands from Merseyside to join its new Myspace page at: for the upcoming The Beat Goes On exhibition at World Museum Liverpool, running from 12 July 2008 until 1 November 2009.

The Merseyside bands that join the exhibition’s Myspace friends will be in with a chance to become part of the exhibition, alongside bands such as The Zutons, The Wombats, Echo and The Bunnymen and OMD.

This massive exhibition is inspired by Liverpool’s love for and contribution to music for the past 60 years, celebrating the city’s venues, bands and creativity.

On the Myspace page each month, National Museums Liverpool will choose ten tracks from bands on their friends list. These tracks will be featured on the Myspace page as a monthly top ten chart, where the public will be able to vote for their favourite online.

Top ten bands will have their band and track name displayed on a wall in the exhibition to show the top ten for each month. The number one track at the end of each month will be added to a ‘digital jukebox’ in the exhibition and will become part of The Beat Goes On, giving bands great exposure for their music and the chance to reach a larger audience.

Voting will begin at the start of June when the first top ten chart will be displayed on the exhibition’s Myspace page.

If you’re not in band, but you love Liverpool music, you can still join The Beat Goes On as a Myspace friend to get the latest updates from regular news bulletins.
