Tying in with Soda_Jerk's Astro Black installation, cosmic jazz musician Sun Ra's influence seeps further into GSFF19 to form the basis for this late night programme. We're screening Points On A Space Age, the 2007 free-form Arkestra documentary by artist-filmmaker Ephraim Asili, alongside As Told To G/D Thyself, the brand new Kamasi Washington short film, directed by The Ummah Chroma (Bradford Young, Terence Nance, Jenn Nkiru, Marc Thomas and Washington himself), which just premiered at Sundance and features music from his latest record Heaven and Earth.

The screening will be followed by a live set by Orion, a 5-piece hip-hop and funk collective based in Glasgow, playing original work as well as music from artists ranging from Sun Ra to Childish Gambino. Having performed many times around central Scotland, they are known for creating a powerful atmosphere fit for a GSFF party. 

Orion are: Harry Weir (sax), Cameron Thomson-Duncan (trumpet/fx), John Patton (guitar), Mark Hendry (bass), Greg Irons (drums).

And following that, expect excellent tunes from Glasgow’s own DJ-Producer Rebecca Vasmant, bringing a fresh new twist to dance music with her love of jazz. Rebecca has promoted her own parties and record fair, toured with Ghanaian outfit Kakatsitsi, hosts a radio show on Worldwide FM, and works on her own live project Glasgow Jazz Experiment, featuring musicians from the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra. Alongside that she's often seen behind the decks at Sub Club, and regularly appears on BBC Radio Scotland and at jazz events and clubs around the globe.

Free drink for ticket holders, courtesy of our friends at Celtic Marches.
