Weekly, live performances by experimental musicians.

Alex Sramek

“A common thread among much of my music is the fleeting moment of “wouldn’t it be cool, awesome, horrible, or hilarious if” – moments that might come about when bored, idle, frustrated, or inebriated, and that would give the average musician a quick, short-lived chuckle. The difference with me is that I write them down and act on them (people frequently comment, “wait, you were serious?”). I find that the opposite of a good idea is often an even better idea, and I have a penchant for using the most uninteresting, irritating, even downright inappropriate sources as impetus for music. These are, to me, a vast source of untapped coolness, and have led to such gems as a death metal scam email, a solemn antiphonal chanting of parking receipt legalese, and a disco party in the middle of a clarinet solo.”
