The following description comes from the event organizer.

Bay Area singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Lindsay Olsen is the brilliant mind behind the warped and magical project Salami Rose Joe Louis. Drawing from her studies in planetary sciences, she creates a unique experience: exploring ideas of multiverses and climate change through the lens of a fictional post-apocalyptic keyboard-toting earthling with a flashlight, a can of cashews and a hopeful optimism. Melding influences from jazz, rock and hip-hop Shuggie Otis, Captain Beefheart, Stereolab, and R. Stevie Moore she creates a unique blend of experimental galaxy sounds with jazz influenced vocals and keys.Her new album Akousmatikous (Ah-coooz-mat-e-koi) features collaborations with Brijean (Ghostly International) and Soccer96 (a project from The Comet is Comings Danalogue and Betamax). It will be released on 19th May 2023 with SRJLs headline North American tour kicking off the following week incorporating ten shows including Elsewhere NYC and Zebulon LA. Summer 2023 festival appearances include Green Man, We Out Here and Womad (UK).The new album follows recent collaborations with Toro y Moi, Alice Phoebe Lou on her Strongboi project, a remix for Brainfeeder labelmates Hiatus Kaiyote, and writing credits on Scapegoat from GRAMMY-winning rapper Baby Keems acclaimed debut album.Lindsay has also had the honor of touring with Flying Lotus, The Cinematic Orchestra, Toro y Moi, TuneYards, Clairo, MNDSGN, Homeshake, The Comet is Coming and Still Woozy.Akousmatikous/Akousmatikoi (or acousmatic) translates to sound where there is no identifiable source. The Akousmatikoi were a sect of Pythagorean mystics from the 5th century BC that were called the listeners as opposed to the Mathematikoi sect that were called the learners. The Akousmatikoi focused on ritual, harmony, and ethical behavior. I am enamored with the concept of listening to a sound when we dont know the source, says Lindsay. The act of listening in this great expanse of the universe, for answers, for questions, or just for something undefinable that we seek. The former climate scientist signed with Flying Lotus Brainfeeder label to release Zdenka 2080 (2019) and Chapters of Zdenka (2020). Both collections were packed with short bursts of experimental pop, abstract beats and bedroom RZdenka 2080 disorientating and fascinating whilst Bandcamp described a sweet journey into a world of pure imagination and charted it in their Best Albums of 2019. The album was also nominated for Album of the Year 2019 at Gilles Petersons Worldwide Awards.
