Welcome to an otherworldly state of bliss, a harmonic gathering good vibes and great beats, brought to you by way of a funk-ified flying saucer. Sun Ra would be proud. For these are the striking individuals and talented minds that together form The Golden Dawn Arkestra. They truly do create an endless flow of mystical grooves opening the gateway to the cosmos.
The avant-garde music collective is widely heralded for its excellent live performances paired with extravagant, colorful visual experiences filled with dance and ornate costuming. The dance floor is their temple, and they’re here to elevate your consciousness.
Join The Golden Dawn Arkestra for their tremendous vinyl release celebration tonight at the Mohawk, 912 Red River, on the outside stage. The bill is so gargantuan that it’s overwhelming: Hard Proof Afrobeat, the Minor Mishap Marching Band, Lo Phi, Keeper, Bali Yaaah and Fort Worth-based collaborative Wire Nest. Doors open at 8 p.m. Very recommended.
Do not resist the cosmic dance.
