The Fire Museum presents: “The Last Hurrah at the Highwire Gallery” with Marshall Allen and Sonic Sphere (happening on 12/14)
We knew this day was coming, but it still pulls at our heart strings. Following last month’s announcement that Fishtown’s Highwire Gallery would be closing and halting The Fire Museum Presents residency indefinitely, The Fire Museum has announced the Gallery’s final event, appropriately named “The Last Hurrah” happening on December 14th.
Sun Ra Arkestra director and famed alto saxophonist / multi-instrumentalist Marshall Allen will be gracing Highwire Gallery with jazz, world-fusion, and afro-futuristic compositions with the support of Sonic Sphere, a group consisting of members from Sonic Liberation Front. The highly talented and multi-faceted Keir Neuringer will also be performing at the event, providing solo saxophone improvisation with acoustic and electronic inclinations that aim to bring socio-political concerns to the forefront in an artistic and meaningful way.
The event takes place at Highwire Gallery on December 14th at 8:00p.m.; tickets and information can be found here. Watch Marshall Allen (center) perform with Milford Graves and Henry Grimes below.
