Best Non-Educational Use of a Classroom (2009)

Acrobatics Everyday

Not only does Acrobatics Everyday, a concert series at various locations on the campus of UC Irvine, bring unconventional entertainment choices to the university's students, but it also brings obscure artists to Orange County that would otherwise have nowhere else to play. It's as simple as that. Yeah, it's fun to play up the "oh, man, it's so weird to see a band while sitting in a classroom!" angle, but the fact that KUCI music director/Acrobatics Everyday mastermind Sam Farzin has gotten acts such as NYC punkers Japanther and electronica whiz Blevin Blectum to play anywhere, Social Science Trailer 103 or not, is cool. And okay, the novelty of it does make it a little cooler.
