From the press release:
One of the founding fathers of progressive space rock, Nik Turner (sax, flute, vocals) will psychedelicize the Seaprog stage with a specially assembled cast of Seattle creative music luminaries, including electric violinist Alicia DeJoie (Moraine), legendary Seattle musician/producer Jack Endino (Earthworm, Skinyard), synthesist Ffej (Tempered Steel), drummer Jack Gold-Molina (Spectral Waves), guitarist Dennis Rea (Moraine), musician/producer Steve Fisk (Pell Mell, Pigeonhed) on Mellotron, and bassist Paul "PK" Kemmish (Rockin' Teenage Combo). This cosmic collective will perform tracks from throughout Nik's career, including classics by Hawkwind, Space Ritual, Inner City Unit, Sphynx, and Space Fusion Odyssey. Nik Turner & Flame Tree will headline the Sunday 8/9 roster.
The festival, now in its third year, takes place at the historic Columbia City Theater, with a free kickoff event at the nearby Royal Room on Friday 7 August.
Update: Due to logistical difficulties, I Know You Well Miss Clara has dropped off the bill.
