CONTRIBUTE! PARTICIPATE! YOU ARE THE SUN! WE ARE THE SUN!
In collaboration with Ed. Varie, THE SUN invites you to a record release listening party of THE SUN song recorded at Kala, alongside a gallery installation of videos from past performances, a film Bay Area artist Paul Clipson, and images collected for THE SUN archive. As the evening carries on, THE SUN will return to its beginnings. In the spirit of the first gatherings at Kala, we invite guests to stay late for an improvisational jam session. Everyone is encouraged to bring any type of instrument, and most importantly, bring you. THE SUN has conducted gatherings at Berkeley Art Museum, Southern Exposure, and Kala Institute.
THE SUN at Ed. Varie will be the first gathering on the East Coast.
We welcome THE SUN.
