Golden Dawn Arkestra brings Sun Ra psychedelia to Fond Object

A year ago, my music editor at Nashville Scene came back to our AirBNB at South by Southwest with news of the wildest thing he was going to see all weekend: a 10-piece psychedelic funk band from Austin, Texas, inspired by the intergalactic afrobeat of Sun Ra — costumes and all. I completely blew every opportunity to see Golden Dawn Arkestra for the entire festival, but they finally came to me on a warm summer night in Nashville.

The Arkestra descended upon Fond Object Records on May 18th, drawing a crowd of sun-worshiping funk fiends into a wild party that couldn’t be denied. (Until it was, when the cops showed up to shut the party down at 9pm.)
