(Wed 21st / 7.30pm / £10 advance, £12 door)
The Cube is honoured to present a very special night. This is an extremely rare chance to see the legendary saxophonist and Sun-Ra Arkestra band-leader play in a small intimate setting.
Marshall Allen joins forces with acclaimed film-maker James Harrar for this incredible collaboration featuring rare 1960s and 1970s Arkestra film footage reassembled by Harrar and sliced through live on stage with Allen's
extraordinary music. Accompanied by Ed Wilcox (Temple of Bon Matin), Kamil Kruta (Koonda Hoolaa) and James Harrar. This ensemble creates music reminiscent of Sun Ra recordings like The Magic City and Strange Strings - passionate, driving, and haunting.
Artfully deconstructed Space Chants to celebrate Sun Ra and his legacy.
