[Note - due to the current Covid-19 situation, the band's management has pushed this gig back to 202! - over a year from now - which is pretty stunning, but par for the course at the moment. So, the longest lead-up to any meetup I've ever run.]
Come and join me and meetup members at the O2 in Brixton for this hip-to-the-max, but brilliant UK group. They combine jazz with electronica, trip-hop and strong anthemic melodies. Check out some of their many videos on YouTube for inspiration.
I've not seen them before live but they've come highly recommended from a number of Meetup members who've seen them. They're definitely in the EST/Portico Quartet part of the jazz venn diagram - won't be to everyone's taste, but they're very much at the cutting edge of new European jazz. Indeed, Portico Quartet's a support act.
Tickets are reasonable, £29 for standing or unreserved seating (which I've got) in the balcony, though they stiff you a little on the additional charges (natch). Members are free to choose standing/sitting, but it would be great if either group of members could stand/sit together, and we should all meetup ahead of time.
