Kiran Leonard plays a fundraiser gig for Partisan! A collectively owned, not-for-profit arts and community space in Manchester. Kiran’s a pal of ours and we’re really excited to be putting him on as our first big in-house gig! This is Kiran’s first full-band tour in two years and tickets on sale RIGHT NOW!
Your name will be on the door. We do not issue physical tickets.
Members tickets may only be purchased by Partisan members. Anyone attending with a member’s ticket must hold an individual valid Partisan membership.
Disabled attendees may have a free ticket for a Personal Assistant if required. We are not currently wheelchair accessible – see our accessibility page for more information.
Memberships must be bought prior to purchasing members-only tickets. If membership cards are needed in time for an event, please purchase at least 48 hours in advance to allow for processing.
Membership cards may be collected whilst events are on during the week from a co-ordinator (check our calendar), from the shop during opening hours (12-8pm, Thus-Sat), or on the door at larger events.
Kiran Leonard is a mercurially talented 21 year old musician from Saddleworth, Greater Manchester. He takes inspiration from artists such as Mothers of Invention, Sufjan Stevens, Deerhoof, Albert Ayler, the Residents, Krzysztof Penderecki, the Beach Boys, Don Caballero, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Adrian Belew.
After releasing countless digital-only releases via Bandcamp, Kiran garnered much acclaim for his debut album Bowler Hat Soup, and later signed to Moshi Moshi to release second album proper Grapefruit. Both of these records featured x3 BBC Radio 6 Music-playlisted singles, and were crowned Album Of The Day upon their release. His 2017 record Derevaun Seraun is in five movements, each inspired by a different piece of literature, arranged for piano, strings and voice, and he’s just announced his new album ‘Western Culture’, released on 19th October, but this Partisan gig will be one of the first places you can hear those songs!
The first single, Paralysed Force, has just been released, and we’re really looking forward to this and more being played live! (we’re only the second non-festival date on the tour!)
