Project X Presents

Project X by Marc ReckFor anyone who didn’t attend Project X Presents at the Rainbow Warehouse, well… I’m sorry, but you really missed out.

It was part of the feast of events on offer as part of Gigbeth and I don’t think I’ve been to anything quite like it before. It mixed so many styles and performances and in a way that just worked really well.

Highlights included comedian Reginald D Hunter, Qawwal singers Aashiq al-Rasul and pianist Rich Batsford with accompanying strings battling it out with the amazing wall of sound created by krautrock group Einstellung. My ears are still ringing!

In fact, the night summed up what Birmingham is capable of when it pulls its cultures and its talent together. It’s something we need to do much more of and it’s great to see people in the city trying to make it happen.

The picture above by Marc Reck is from the dress rehearsal on Friday. There were a lot of pictures being taken on the night. I’ll link to them when I find them.

Here’s looking forward to the next performance!
