AVANT-JAZZ | The Sun Ra Arkestra 

The Sun Ra Arkestra's sonic attack has redefined atonal hijinks for years. Its varied music runs the course between linear and linear-as-a-busted spring.

The Sun Ra Arkestra plays Monday, October 15, 8 p.m. at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. $30-$35. 292-9940. lovincup.com; sunraarkestra.com.
