Infinity Knives x Brian Ennals @ Future Yard, Birkenhead
20 March @ 7:00 pm£8.80
We’re hyped beyond belief to be hosting an Infinity Knives x Brian Ennals show here at Future Yard on 20th March. The experimental hip hop producer (Infinity Knives, aka Tariq Ravelomanana) and rapper (Ennals) are best friends and Maryland natives, who pooled their prodigious talents on the fierce 2020 album Rhino XXL. The pair have just wrapped a new album, King Cobra, which, based on advanced word is an early contender for album of the year, any genre. They’re not revolutionaries, but both hope revolutionaries are playing this album while knocking the windows out of police vehicles.
Tickets on sale now.
Infinity Knives is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer from Baltimore, MD by way of Madagascar, Tanzania, and South Africa. His most recent solo album Dear Sudan was released to acclaim in November 2020 on Phantom Limb records. The LP led to an enthusiastic write up in the legendary Spin magazine and a position as the musical director of popular NPR podcast Invisibillia. One of Tariq’s favorite albums is Candy Cigarettes, a 2013 release by MD rapper/singer Brian Ennals. This led to three collaborations between the two on the aforementioned Dear Sudan, which then led to their joint album Rhino XXL.
Last November, Mind on Fire – an orchestral group based out of Baltimore – put on a two night show highlighting Knives’ work. Brian performed several songs and both nights sold-out. The pair are out on a European tour this March and hope to keep performing to increasingly packed venues for the near future.
