Yo La Arkestra!

Dear Saturnites,

If any of you were planning to go to Maxwell's on Monday to hear the Arkestra, sorry to say the tickets are all sold out ~ great for Harvard University, but not so good for you. Too bad nobody posted this concert listing to the Saturn list sooner! Well, at any rate, I thought you'd enjoy reading the little blurb in the magazine "Time Out New York" that accompanies the listing (it doesn't say which listings editor wrote it, but it's from page 13O in the issue dated Nov. 28~Dec. 5, 2OO2):

"The world owes a great cosmic debt to time~traveling bandleader Sun Ra. He went back to Saturn nearly a decade ago and left the funkiest, swingingest band in the Milky Way back here on Earth. This is your opportunity to travel the spaceways."

<< >> << >> << >> << >> << >>

Budding Arkestra publicists, you've got a head start with that one!

Dear Saturnites,

I was checking out a Roy Campbell, Jr. concert entry on the Yo La Tengo site when what to my wondering eyes should appear, but...
