The end of March sees the Riot Jazz express train journey down to London. The nine piece group, who bring the same raucous explosion of brass instrumentation popularised by the likes of Hot 8 Brass Brand, Hackney Colliery Band and the Youngblood Brass Band, will be heading to Crucifix Lane in London for a six hour explosion of music across three rooms.

The group, which blends soul, hip-hop, blues, funk and of course the jazz that adorns their moniker into a brilliantly erratic soundclash, has been a fervent fixture on the Manchester club scene for the past few years, making Wednesday an essential night during their initial residency at the Mint Lounge as well as frequently sold out affairs on the weekend since shifting.

The next of those sees them at Antwerp Mansion on Friday 28th February, but one month later they will be taking this arcane hedonism to the capital. Check the video above of them jamming with Swedish alt pop heroes little Dragon as an indicator of what to expect.

Joining them will be further live music from Honeyfeet, Walk, Tantz and many more, with DJ support coming from Wolverhampton's finest selector Alexander Nut, Mancunian party starter and Riot Jazz benchmark Rich Reason, and Coops all joining the bands. Head here for
