Santa Fe, New Mexico — September 21-22
September 21: Steve Roach with Michael Stearns and Rob Thomas
September 22: Steve Roach (solo)
Ambient-electronic music pioneer Steve Roach returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico at Paradiso, the site of last year’s epic and completely sold-out Dreamtime Return 30th Anniversary show. The full spectrum of Steve’s works will be experienced, including material from his upcoming new releases. For Saturday’s show, for the first time ever, Steve will be joined by fellow electronic innovator and collaborator Michael Stearns (Desert Solitaire) and didgeridoo master Rob Thomas (Inlakesh and Monuments of Ecstasy). Sunday’s solo concert will move towards the deep end of pure sonic immersion and sacred spaces.
Tucson, Arizona — November 2-3
November 2: Night of the Living Fest
November 3: 30th Annual All Souls Procession and Grand Finale
The All Souls Procession is perhaps one of the most important, inclusive and authentic public ceremonies in North America today, gathering well over 150,000 participants on the streets of downtown Tucson for a two-mile long human-powered procession that ends in the ceremonial burning of a large Urn filled with the hopes, offerings and wishes of the public for those who have passed. Myriad altars, performers, installation art, and creatives of all kinds collaborate for almost half the year to prepare their offerings for this amazing event. The All Souls Procession, and now the entire All Souls Weekend, is a celebration and mourning of the lives of our loved ones and ancestors. On Saturday the 2nd, Steve will be featured as a headlining artist at Night of the Living Fest at the MSA Annex, with a special two-hour set and album release party. On Sunday the 3rd, Steve has created an amazing, bespoke soundscape for the finale of this 30th Annual Ceremony, which is free to attend.
