For this event he sets all those hats aside to don the one with which he has the most expertise. Join in as he shares with you his true passion of building and operating personal flying saucers. Welcome to your introduction to Flying Saucer Inc.®️
Jacoti Sommes is THE electro-funk producer from Columbus, Ohio
More about Wex[EP]
As today’s vocabulary has expanded to include “social distancing” and “essential businesses,” the Wex has entered into a conversation with some of our favorite local artists to bring you Essential Performances. With a nod to the short-form, often experimental nature of extended-play records, the Wex[EP] series seeks to document a facet of each artist’s practice and explore innovative ways of communing with one another during this rupture of routine.
Join us on Thursdays as we chart a better tomorrow with the thinkers, players, movers, and makers to whom we continue to look for joy and inspiration. If you are able, please consider supporting each artist by using the links located on this page.
