St. Dirt Elementary School is a little bigband; it's a salon orchestra; it's a cabaret pitband; it's a New School concert band half-remembering oldschool psychedelics in a district West of Weimar and North of San Antonio. It is both public and private. It can swing like a Kollektief or shamble like a seaside sinfonia. St. Dirt Elementary School plays compositions: rubberband exotica, bouncing like bamboo windchimes dangling from the hood of a springloaded pram. St. Dirt Elementary School is Wes Cheang -- guitalele, Ryan Driver -- analog synth/thumb reeds, Myk Freedman -- lap steel, Tania Gill --piano/melodica, Julia Hambleton -- clarinet, Kai Koschmider -- alto sax, Jake Oelrichs -- drums/glockenspiel, and Mike Overton -- bass.
