Ventura New Music Festival
Curated by Jeff Kaiser
Saturday, May 6, 2006 at
12 noon to 10 p.m.
11 bands for 10 bucks
This year the Ventura New Music Festival will be using two rooms at
City Hall for an all-day, non-stop series of new creative music.
Well, O.K., we will break for dinner.
Our Festival features a combination of composed, improvised, acoustic and electronic music
being created by living artists. One of the longest lasting "underground" festivals in Ventura,
(maybe even the longest, but hey, there might be something so underground that even we don't know about it)
we have a history that goes back to 1987...more to come on that.
