It’s been a while since our last gig, but the 265 Quartet will be performing again soon and we can’t wait! Firstly, we’re really excited to have been asked to play at the Harmonic Festival in Birmingham. Run by the Cobweb Collective, it’s in its second year and this year boasts Arve Henriksen and Iain Ballamy amongst it’s other acts. Looking forward to sharing the bill with Splice (featuring PA Tremblay) and Noose (who were great at Mostly Jazz this year).
We’ll also be playing in Manchester the following week for the Raise Your Voice collective at the Anthony Burgess Institute, which is by all accounts a great venue!
September 30th – 4:30pm (sharp!) – Harmonic Festival, Birmingham
October 7th – 7:30pm – Anthony Burgess Institute, Manchester
