Oakland’s ActiveMusic Series Provides Relaxed Atmosphere for Strange Sounds 

Source: East Bay Express.

Composer and saxophonist Aram Shelton founded ActiveMusic Series in 2008, at first as a recurring event at the Ivy Room in Albany. It then moved to the Uptown and, when the club closed in 2014, occurred at the Omni Commons in Temescal. Shelton eventually bowed out, leaving things to co-organizers Jacob Felix Heule and Crystal Pascucci, who today helm Active at the reopened Uptown with Robert Lopez.
