A genre-bursting mix of Latin jazz, punk rock and pop poetry will take centrestage at The Fridge’s new season.

The latest edition of the performance hub’s Concert Series kicks off on September 19 with an eight-piece jazz band, led by trumpet and flugelhorn player Tonatuit Isidron, who promises to showcase his own “Latin and classical-influenced” compositions.

We go bigger still when 10 artists on the talent agency’s roster perform in a single night, billed as The Fridge Allstars on September 26, promising a pick ‘n’ mix of vocal and instrumental solos and collaborations.

UAE punk rocker Khalifa Thani will then take to the stage on October 3 to launch his debut album, Paper Plane, with support on the night from Upslide.

The season rounds out with a mash-up of poetry and music from local guitar and vocal duet Floetics, who return after a hiatus to present material new and old on October 10.

Tickets for all shows are Dh50. Doors open at 7.30pm each day at The Fridge, which is based in Dubai’s Alserkal Avenue. Check Facebook for more.
