SANDY BULL: NO DEPOSIT, NO RETURN BLUES - Friday, January 21 @ Burton Theatre
*** HOTT LAVA and Dark Matter proudly present KC Bull's documentary about psychedelic folk musician SANDY BULL. Dazed & Confused sez: “Bull’s legendary performances, blending elements of American folk with jazz, classical, Indian and Arabic-influenced modes, and later rock n’ roll, made him a cult hero to a generation of musicians and artists.” All attendees will receive a free DARK MATTER mix -- a 50 minute psychedelic tapestry weaved by "disc jocks" Aaron Lindell & Forest Juziuk. Perfect for the opium den or dune buggy!
