Two errors in this announcement -- profound apologies!

FIRST: both shows are SUNDAY the 20th

SECOND: due to a fire, the Cinema Soloriens show will not be in Eliot 
Chapel. The new venue on the Reed campus is still being confirmed, and 
I'll send that information as soon as I get it!

Sorry about that . . .  stay tuned . . .


Two fantastic concerts on the same night: How to choose?

reason to go home, after the Spare Room reading in the early evening . . .)

Cinema Soloriens and the Cosmo-Drama

A multimedia collaboration between filmmaker James Harrar and legendary
musician Marshall Allen (longtime associate of Sun Ra). The performance
consists of James and Marshall, as well as various guest musicians,
providing a musical accompaniment to James' short films, which are
"often meditations on beauty, perception, allegory, sensuality, and
visual phenomena." This time, James and Marshall will be joined by
drummer Matt Hannafin and electric bassist Adam Reese. The performance
will also include rare Sun Ra footage from the 60's and 70's. All of the
films will be making their West Coast premiere. A brief Q & A will follow.
