ARTSaha! kicks off its second week of concerts with an evening of experimental music tonight at 7:30 at the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery, 405 South 11th St. at the corner of Harney St., in the Old Market. Tickets are free. “Music from the Underbelly” will weave together the sounds of strings, horns and transmissions, and provide an answer to that burning question: what IS a water-yam? Join us for an exercise in exploring the outer boundaries of music tonight.
