Electric Palms is bringing you the first installment of The Legacy Series! A unique series of concerts showcasing some of the greatest pioneers of electronic dance music! Volume 1 will feature English electronic music legends The Orb! Join us on Saturday, April 12th at The Republik for a night of surreal ambient house, colorful light shows and psychedelic imagery! The Orb - It started with a Joke, audacious dub science and some cassettes of New York radio's revolutionary master mixes of the late 70s early 80s. Killing Joke marked Dr Alex Paterson's entry into the rock 'n' roll world, as both roadie and encore vocalist haranguing his way through the Stooges' 'No Fun' & ' bodies', while golden age dub reggae and New York sound shifters such as Shep Pettibone and Tony Humphries fueled his desire to take sound to realms only previously glimpsed in dreams.
