URB ALT FESTIVAL
7 Hours of Alternative Music Celebrating the Legacy of Sun Ra
The opening concert at the Harlem Stage Gatehouse features the avant-garde bass mastery of Melvin Gibbs (Rollins Band, Harriet Tubman); the soulful alternative hip hop/funk of Atlantan Stacy Epps; the internet "Chocolate Rain" ubiquity of Tay Zonday; the cosmic jazz vocal stylings of Los Angelino, Waberi Jordan; the soul laced proto-rock melodicism of Tenderhead; the electronica infused funk/rock of OMG; the funky blues rock of Devi; the folk/soul of honey voiced crooner Kendal; the Latin rock/punk experimentalism of Millsted; and the futuristic big band exploratory missions of the MuthaWit Orchestra (URB ALT Festival house band). All artists will be performing their original material as well as paying homage to the work of Sun Ra.
