Sun Ra Arkestra

When avant-garde band leader Sun Ra departed this planet in 1993, he left behind one of the funkiest bands in the Milky Way. Led by saxophonist Marshall Allen, the Arkestra still plays the intergalactic, big band free jazz favored by its founder (the sequined, Afrofuturist costumes are also still a major part of the show). After performing in Union Park, the group lands at Constellation for this Pitchfork Music Festival aftershow.
