Sun Ra’s ‘Space Is the Place’ at the UAG

On Wednesday, February 12th, the Albany Sonic Arts Collective presents a night of film and music at the UAG. The film portion kicks off at 7 with Sun Ra‘s 1974 sci-fi film Space Is the Place.

The following is the first sentence of the plot of the film:

Sun Ra, who has been reported lost since his European tour in June 1969, lands on a new planet in outerspace with his crew “The Arkestra” and decides to settle African Americans on this planet.


The musical portion of the night kicks off at 9 with crazy synth-dude M. Geddes Gengras. Each portion of the night is a suggested donation of $5 and will be a rad way to enjoy the arts on a random Wednesday in February.
