Leftfoot have announced their autumn and winter programming across a host of Birmingham’s venues — including the Hare and Hounds, Rainbow, Blackbox and Institute — and it’s looking pretty spectacular.
With 16 years in the game, Leftfoot will partner up with many of the region’s leading promoters, which will see the likes of MCDE, Bicep, Joy Orbison, Hunee, Horse Meat Disco, Gilles Peterson, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Move D, Max Graef and Mark E all playing in the city.
On the live side, there’s more from the Ninja Tune label with nu-jazz’s Cinematic Orchestra, Japanese “death-jazz” sextet Soil and Pimp Sessions and the mercurial Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, the Chicago-based band consisting of eight sons of the jazz trumpeter Phil Cohran.
Leftfoot will also embarking on a monthly residency at The Garden Brewery in Zagreb, a brand-new venture from the team behind The Garden Festival, with dates confirmed for Saturday 17th September, Saturday 15th October, Saturday 19th November and Saturday 17th December.
“For our autumn and winter programming, we are utilising four venues across the city which each offer something different,” Leftfoot’s Adam Regan said. “As well as this, we are starting a brand new residency with our friends in Croatia at The Garden Brewery, a fantastic space which has taken the city by storm, and we will be taking Leftfoot there each month, starting in September. It’s a very exciting time for us."
