LIJF 2024: Mutant Jazz LIJF After PartyFriday, 23 February 2024 Time: 8.30pm
NB: This event takes place at Metrocola, Leece Street, Liverpool.
The third Mutant Jazz event is the official after party for the Liverpool International Jazz Festival.
Mutant Jazz is a collaboration between promoters Parrjazz and You & I Presents at Metrocola’s Metro Loft, on Leece Street, Liverpool. They have teamed up with the LIJF to offer a late-night extension to Friday 23rd February’s jazz activities.
The idea is to bring new artists who are part of the Northwest jazz spectrum and present them as key players in our rapidly mutating jazz scene, hosted and herded by the lovely MC Motormouf.
The first Mutant Jazz event in September 2023 sold out and is still being talked about. The artists included Bonk! with their weaponised and entertaining brand of heavy funk rock, Bop Kaballa building their chilled new jazz into a hypnotic drum and bass crescendo, Sweet Beans delivering their throbbing riot jazz and Ranga and the Easy Tigers, a beautiful collaboration of all types of instrumentation, held together by an electronic framework of modular synths covering a large dinner table. The closing hop-hop jam took the event into the small hours.
Mutant Jazz #3 is scheduled for Friday 23rd February, again, upstairs at Metrocola’s Metro Loft, Leece Street Liverpool L1 2TR. Bands include: Bonk!, Bop Kaballa, Ask My Bull and Lydia Reece. MC Motormouf will be in the house and a jam will conclude the evening.
LIJF Festival Pass holders will receive complementary admission. Doors are at 8pm and the first artist will start at 8:30pm.
