My KUTX: Golden Dawn Arkestra

There are a lot of great national and international acts appearing at Fun Fun Fun Fest this weekend, but don’t sleep on Golden Dawn Arkestra. The Austin band can stand up to any at the Fest, thanks to their incredible live show. The costumes and dancers are one thing; the Arkestra’s blend of Afrobeat, psychedelia, and jazz is as booty-shaking-good as Big Freedia.

Catch Golden Dawn Arkestra on Sunday, November 8 at 1:20 p.m. on the Orange Stage, and to get you tuned into the band’s wonderful, weird wavelength, saxophonist/keyboardist/shaman Topaz McGarrigle is our guest DJ this week. Tune in Saturday at 6 p.m. or listen anytime below the playlist.
