Space IS the Place, and that is where Movie Loft and Shadowbox Studio are heading in May. Two days on the heels of Sun Ra's 104th birthday, celebrate & journey with us into the gloriously weird cosmos.
From 1974, 'Space is the Place' is an Afrofuturist sci-fi apocalyptic free-jazz excursion, where Sun Ra & his Arkestra return to earth on a music-fueled spaceship to battle for the future of the black race. With wild costumes, a pimp Overseer, Oakland locations, NASA and amazing music, this is a scene like no other!
There will be lots of Sun Ra records spinning starting at 7, along with hot dogs on the grill. Movie takes off around 8, more spaceway sounds following.
Free, donations appreciated. BYO or sample what's on-hand!
