Into:Music – Gig of the Week
The Comet is Coming at Stereo, Glasgow
Thursday 28 February 2019
Space-jazz superheroes – King Shabaka, Danalogue The Conquerer and Betamax Killer – are keyboard wizard, Dan Leavers, heavy beats and percussion provider, Max Hallet and ace saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings (of Mercury shoulda-wons, Sons of Kemet) and together they are Sun Ra-channeling bringers of the funky sonic newness!
Nu-Jazz, as spearheaded by Kamasai Washington and LA’s Brainfeeder record label, is pushing popular music into directions hitherto only bought by aficianados and weirdos! Now the kids are getting down to it and Yorkshire’s genre defying Leaf Label are pushing the envelope of fresh grooves in the UK.
This gig is sure to be a euphoric event, full of moments where your music tastes are melted down and thrown into new orbits.
Go boldly, if you dare!
