Gig of the week in Glasgow has to be an evening of cosmic music in Glasgow tonight, at the city's Flying Duck. Headlining is The Space Lady, aka Suzy Soundz, nee Susan Schneider, a legend in underground musical circles. The Space Lady began as a street musician in San Francisco, cutting a distinctive figure with the flashing space helmet and Casio, before giving up her musical career to care for her parents.
Her utterly distinctive, ethereal music has recently been rediscovered, as part of a reevaluation of the groundbreaking work done by women in electronic music. Traditionally regarded as the epitome of an outsider musician, a female Moondog perhaps, the release of her Greatest Hits by Night School Records, and her first ever world tour hitting the age of 70, have revealed the beauty and wonder of her music to a new audience.
Cosmic support will come from Glasgow's own Lo Kindre and Kelora, both of whom are quite psychedelic in their own right.
