It’s sumptuous the way these grooves rock. Hedonistic, even. The dazzling extra-terrestrial ensembles of ATX outfit Golden Dawn Arkestra may amp the vibe up several notches, but let there be no doubt about the electro-funky grooves of these Sun Ra disciples. Unleash “Phenomenal” into the skate rink.“Golden Limousine” is the sexiest backseat party on the planet. And the resplendent adventures continue on GDA’s Midas touch release, The Gold Album, out this week on Space Flight Records.

Don your Ray Bans for this brilliance, and switch on that disco ball in your altar space. Golden Dawn Arkestra’s interstellar celebratory ritual honoring their new LP is tomorrow night, Friday August 12, at Stubb’s indoor venue on Red River. Doors at 7 p.m., and Walker Lukens and Sir Woman are on the bill. A whole night of superstars.
