The first Solid Sound was held at the museum last August, and featured performances by the Nels Cline Singers, the John Stirratt/Pat Sansone project Autumn Defense, Mike Jorgensen's Pronto, and Glen Kotche's On Fillmore. Solid Sound also features comedy acts, DJs, and video and art exhibits and installations.
