• Sun Ra

For the latest installment in the Homeroom series, scholar, gallerist, and occasional Reader contributor John Corbett will present Sun Ra 101: Man From Saturn. The event happens at 9 PM on Tuesday night at the Hungry Brain, with a five-dollar suggested donation. Corbett has been deeply invested in the music of onetime Chicagoan Sun Ra for decades, writing about his work at length in his book, Extended Play; releasing previously unheard Ra music on his Unheard Music Series imprint; and helping to curate a traveling exhibition of artwork, music, and rare Sun Ra ephemera called Pathways to Unknown Worlds: Sun Ra, El Saturn & Chicago’s Afro-Futurist Underground, 1954-1968.
