Gengahr announce art exhibtion

unnamed (1)Gengahr have announced plans for a unique art exhibition featuring themselves and friends to take place for five days at A-Side B-Side gallery in Hackney, London. Hosted by the four piece band after the release of debut album A Dream Outside, the exhibition will include work by Gengahr's bassist Hugh Schulte, Alt-J's Thom Green, Ed Nash from Bombay Bicycle Club and Laurie Vincent of Slaves. Schulte has said, "Ed and I went to college together so it's something we have been thinking about doing for a while. I’m also a massive fan of Thom and Laurie’s art and  felt it was too much of a lovely coincidence that I have gotten to know all these guys who paint alongside their musical careers. I feel their work is under acknowledged and after a few late night conversations we all agreed it'd be a really nice thing to do. I'm looking forward to their artwork being centre stage for a week. "

The event is totally free and on from the 7th August till 11th August. You can also catch the band on their first headline tour at the end of the year. Check out our "in conversation..." with Gengahr here.
