Factory Obscura and the So Help Me’s are presenting The March of the Sun King June 21. This will be a psychedelic celebration of the summer solstice, told through the music of the Beatles’ Abbey Road, and it kicks off Factory Obscura’s Summer Solstice weekend block party.
Oklahoma City-based indie band The So Help Me’s have been on hiatus for the past seven months, but they’re coming back for this immersive performance. Some OKC friends may remember The So Help Me’s from their incredible rooftop performance on top of Velvet Monkey Salon in the Plaza District several months back.
The So Help Me’s have been described by the Oklahoma Gazette as “existential bliss” and “existential rock for your soul” by Denver’s Bloderbeat. So it makes sense that they would team up with the always existential Factory Obscura.
The March of the Sun King will feature dancers, actors, and musicians from local bands including OKC’s own DEERPEOPLE, Rousey, The Fervent Route, Bad Jokes, and Nicnos. The show will be Friday, June 21 at Factory Obscura’sMix-Tape at 25 NW 9th St. in the heart of Automobile Alley starting at 7:45 p.m. And what’s even better is that this event is free to the public, followed by the additional Summer Solstice Weekend Block Party celebrations through the weekend.
Summer Solstice events include a roller skating rink, Pride celebrations, live painting, and more on Friday, a performance from Lincka and LTZ in collaboration with Tower Theatre on Saturday as well as spin art, Poetry and Chill OKC, and spin art and then even more fun events on Sunday.
