The noise will set you free!
KAOS 89.3 FM and the Olympia Strange Music Society proudly presents the 18th Annual Olympia Experimental Music Festival
The Olympia Experimental Music Festival is a true return to roots event, avant though their roots may be! This years' event is being held in it's entirety in the classic downtown Oly theater space, The Midnight Sun, where the festival actually began in 1995, @ 113 N Columbia Street, Olympia WA.
It is running Friday June 22nd-Sunday June 24th.
Artists include Amy Denio & Emily Hay, XAMBUCA from North Carolina, Blue Sabbath Black Cheer, Crank Sturgeon, and a one time reunion of Chuck Swaim with the Dead Air Fresheners. 21 mind blowing performances in all!!
Tickets are available at the door for $8 Friday or Saturday @ 8pm, $6 for the Sunday matinee @ 3pm, OR a festival pass for just $18. All shows are open to all ages. For more information call (360) 870-2422.
This kickstarter will be going to pay for the venue, printing costs.This will allow us to pay the artists for their travel expenses with everything we make at the door. All the festival organizers work for free and do not take any funds raised.
Donors of $25 or more will receive a event poster and a program signed by the artist, Aerick Duckhugger! And you never know what kind of goodies I may throw in.
Returning with the space as this year's chief organizer and curator is the festival's founder(or "flounder' as he prefers to be called) L. Jim McAdams, a former KAOS Music Director and DJ from 1993-2003, who now resides in Portland OR. "Olympia is known for being a city of music festivals", says McAdams, "And well it should be. But we are the only music festival to come back EVERY year since 1995 and push the limits of what sound can do beyond all expectations. I'm damn proud of this event, and I look forward to it most as a listener. It makes a very hard year a little bit better to crown it with this."
Our friend Chandra has just added a VERY TANTALIZING reward to our list. It blows me away, folks! Thank you Chandra.
