Join acclaimed science fiction author Jason Heller as he guides us through the weird and wild world of the space-obsessed music of the ‘70s.
Taking in David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Sun Ra, X-Ray Spex and many, many more acts, his book ‘Strange Stars‘ also examines the films, books and events that defined the rise of space in the collective imagination.
By turns forensically detailed and dazzlingly eclectic, this evening of Strange Stars will contain something for even the most dedicated fan of intergalactic music.
