JONES PLAYHOUSE: Sun Ra Tribute Band
4045 University Way NE, Seattle, 7:30pm
from Earshot Jazz: Costumes and processionals in the spirit of Sun Ra are the order of the day for this event along with group vocals and other features of Sun Ra’s music. Pieces to be performed include Call for All Demons; Enlightenment; Space Loneliness; and Somewhere Else. Herman “Sonny” Blount officially became Sun Ra in the early 50s, declaring that he was from the angel race whose mission it was to be a cosmic communicator. This incarnation of the Sun Ra Tribute Band first performed at On the Boards when the Hubble Telescope got its corrective lens, and the images of the universe became forever imprinted on our collective psyches. Show is at 7:30 p.m. at Jones Playhouse, 4045 University Way NE.
