My Philadelphia music fam, King Britt and his partner-in-deed Rucyl has started SATURN NEVER SLEEPS a highly successful event series that has been growing into a movement dedicated to spreading vibrations to further the ongoing spiritual evolution. Their first performance in New York City back in July honoring intergalactic key-holder SUN RA was an incredible success drawing over 2700 attendees. They are back for the new season hosting the next installment of SATURN NEVER SLEEPS called FREQUENCY HOLDERS. Here is the word from their site:

Saturn Never Sleeps is a celebration of the electric sound phenomenon. King Britt and interactive artist Rucyl Mills invite today’s most innovative artists to stretch the boundaries of genre, rhythm, and concept in musical conversation. Each month live musicians of acoustic and electronic inventions step outside of their usual performance format to come together in a fusion of electro-beats, oscillations, rhythms, and ethereal drones, immersing audiences in a provocative, intimate, thought altering world of sight and sound. Guests can expect multimedia installations, futuristic instruments and mind-bending visuals.
September’s theme: Frequency Holders “Their function is to anchor the frequency of the new consciousness on this planet.” – Eckhart Tolle
