Get Live Get Spooky@the Library

Time To Get Spooky

The silence was broken at Slough Library on Saturday when bands took over the venue for a Halloween gig.

The spooky library event was organised by Swipe Music charity volunteers and the library, following on from the success of another library gig earlier this year.

Bands on the line-up included Fried Squirrel, Drew Black, Cyanide River, girl band Already Blonde, Windsor busker Mark Handley and the Bone Idols, girl band Bus Stop to Nowhere, teen band The Pedal Pushers, former Maidenhead Battle of the Bands winners Skadilly and Nasca Lines.

Teenage Swipe volunteer Marcus Connolly was the MC for the night dressed as The Invisible Man/black morph.

Helping with sound on the night was Diamond Bevell, who performed rap/poetry at the last library gig and accomplished musician Drew Black also helped as sound technician.

Gaby from Slough Library was thrilled with the turnout after more than three times the number normally expected at library events turned up for “Get Live Get Spooky” the Halloween Library Gig
She said: “The audience took a little while to get into it – they were a bit shy at first. It is still a different space for them to be in from usual, but by the end of the night they were all jumping around like crazy things.”
