Mt. Tabor Theater

Pioneering German artist Hans-Joachim Roedelius is best known as the co-founder of Krautrock forefathers Cluster and Harmonia, but don't think he stopped there. The visionary force behind the early ambient and electronic movements not only collaborated with some of your favorite artists (Bowie, Eno, and Neu!, for starters), but he also released a whopping 40 solo records. And he's still going. Roedelius might be 76 years old, but his gorgeous kosmische has only gotten better with age. The old man isn't showing any signs of slowing down, either. When Cluster broke up for the third time last year, and original member Conrad Schnitzler passed away, what do you think Roedelius did? Call it a day? No—instead, he mustered together a trilogy of new releases and set off to tour the states with multimedia collective Xambuca. Just make sure you catch this show. You never know, it might be your last chance to see a living legend. CHRIS CANTINO
