Presented by Capital Fringe + Bill Warrell
In conjunction with A Body Politic, Bill Warrell :: FRINGE ART Capital Fringe is thrilled to welcome the Arkestra to our intimate Trindad Theatre for what will be a truly memorable night.
There’s a Sun Ra recording that triggers a particular memory for a certain generation of Washington music lovers. “Space is the Place” was the soundtrack to radio spots for d.c. space.
Though the iconic Sun Ra left our planet in 1993, his cosmic legacy is proudly maintained by the interstellar sounds of the Arkestra, which operates under the direction of alto saxophonist Marshall Allen. With such a massive, joyous songbook and organized chaos that rolls to their legendary grooves, sing-along chants and atonal blasts of mischievous brass, the Arkestra remain one of the most unmissable live acts today.
