Following the announcement that the band is recording their first full-length album, progressive jazz quartet [ Q ] have now been added to the third annual Austin Instrumental Music Festival, which will be held at Empire Control Room & Garage on February 25th, 2017. The San Antonio-based outfit will share the bill with Fermata Playa, Rattletree, Verisimilitude, and the popular post-rock duo El Ten Eleven.

Early Bird tickets can be purchased below and on [Eventbrite]. A minimum of two can be bought at a time, and they are $15 each, so bring a friend!

Having recently coalesced from jam sessions between four TIMEWHEEL artists, the new band flirts with the experimental boundaries of free-form music and leaves the audiences of their live performances stunned with their casual, but complex talent.

Involved in the project are Raul Rodriguez, the lead guitarist and co-producer of Something Fiction, the often-coupled multi-instrumentalists Arkeologist and 40.Hands who play bass and keys, respectively, and locally-renown beatmaker Jonah Conrad who plays drums.

Together, the band has created a laid-back fusion of contemporary free-jazz which is powered by the creative expanses of each member’s own inner ascendancy, making for an invigorating live performance that will leave spectators in awe.
