Every month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded presenters and artists offer ten concerts of adventurous music in an informal yet respectful all-ages setting: contemporary classical, free improvisation, the outer limits of jazz, electronic music, microtonal/new instruments, sound art, and other extraordinary sonic experiences.

Passenger Pigeon (Levi Fuller) uses baritone guitar, cheap mic, and looper to make improvised wordless music; guitarist Mark Schlipper creates sounds to cross senses and alter states with influences as disparate as the avant garde, Eastern sacred, and American roots music; Too Tired to Say Anything plays blurry music designed to put us all to sleep with loops, synths, piano, guitar and flickering lights.
