From a press release:

Synaesthesia Social combines live music, drawing, poetry, and theatre: the performers are the subjects for the artists as well as the entertainment for the audience. Every week presents a different ensemble of progressive and experimental musicians in a venue allowing them to perform uncompromised to an all-ages crowd, with expectations extending beyond the current Top 40.

The music ranges from and merges rock, classical, jazz, hip-hop, gypsy, folk, country, blues, electronic, and the experimental and avant-garde. The Olde Brick Theatre (126 W. Market St., Scranton) fosters the interchange of art forms, valuing the development of culture within community over commodity.

Make art to the music, or make a space in the audience. All ages and skill levels are welcome. The non-artistic are most welcome to simply enjoy the show.

Synaesthesia Social is held every Sunday from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. It is $5 general admission and $2 with valid student ID.

The schedule of performers through July was just recently released.
