DJ Alf spinning a set off of 45rpm records joined by different local musicians who perform live along with their selected 45.
I played with a newer release of the theme music from Raumpatrouille Orion, (Space Patrol Orion in English) the first German science fiction television series that premiered in 1966. The theme was written by Peter Thomas.

Welcome to the Second Edition of Zodiak Free Arts Lab West!
Krautrock was born at the Zodiak Free Arts Lab, Berlin in 1968. Groups like Tangerine Dream played epic shows and anyone could experiment with futuristic sounds between sets, sparking new projects.
We are recreating that scene. Local avant garde acts will bring instruments like synthesizers, keytars, circuit bent toys, and banjoes to try out between the bands.

I'll be playing solo theremin at the opening at Valkarie Gallery and Studio on December 14, 2019. I will be playing sometime between 6 and 9 pm with breaks.
Valkarie is located in Belmar at 445 S Saulsbury St, Lakewood, Colorado 80226.
Inspiration for this show comes from the multitude of amazing creatures on our planet, the importance of their lives and their deaths. We celebrate the mystery, whimsy, intelligence, companionship and invaluable presence of these boundless creatures. We acknowledge our similarities and differences, understanding that without them our lives wouldn’t be the same.
Creepy, crawly, scaly, warm & fuzzy - join us in honoring the BEASTS and how they enhance our world!

The Little Fyodor Band
DJ Frank Bell
When the Denver Art Rock Collective was established in 2005, it was designed to help misfit musicians band together in support and celebration of the different, the original, and the weird. Outnumbered in a disinterested rock music scene, the DARC sought refuge in the strange.
Since those halcyon days, the DARC has seen guitar sales decline, CD sales decline, even MP3 sales decline. Clubs have all but abandoned material support for the musically wayward. While the DARC set itself apart from the mainstream, the mainstream has dried up or moved away entirely. Once the court jester to a larger kingdom, the DARC is now one of the few survivors. There is no need to point out the feet of clay, as the once indomitable genre has now withered to dust. Much like Vaughn Meader in the wake of the JFK assassination, the DARC is adrift, a rebel without a cause. Over the past 14 years, many of the bands have disbanded and rebranded before shuffling off to the great gig in the sky. Newer bands, like Bolonium and Gort vs. Goom have taken their place, fighting to keep the spirits alive.
On Saturday, August 17th, 2019 at Streets Denver, in what will either be a reunion of old or a celebration of continuation, the DARC will be hosting their All-Star event. (Hey now, you’re an art-rock star!) Expect to see active DARC bands, The Plastic Rakes, Gort v. Goom, and the Cattle Axe as well as host/MC DJ Frank Bell. And all-star members of such seminal bands as The Mourning Sickness, New Ancient Astronauts, Yerkish, the Skivvies, Amphibious Jones, and the Inactivists. Maybe we’ll even coax Little Fyodor and/or Babushka out of quasi-retirement. These are artists that have not been forgotten… mostly because people weren’t aware of them in the first place. But the few who did see them (mostly because they were dating one or more of the band members at the time) will never forget them. Maybe not in a good way, but the DARC will not go gentle into that dark night. Art Rock may smell funny, but it’s alive!
