Twist will feature six short stories with turns for the unexpected, from legends of the Arabian Nights to airborne badasses of WWII, wild west ne'erdowells to jazz age darlings, and ill fated attempts to control nature to the progression of up-close dance moves.

Expert talks on odd topics; odd talks on everything else. Odd Salon is a series of cocktail hour lectures, featuring short talks illuminating extraordinary and unusual chapters from history, science, art, and adventure. We invite experts and amateurs alike to have a drink with us and share inspiring and strange tales so we can all learn something new -- from legends of lost cities to masters of art forgery, engineering failures to murderous sideshow performers, daring heists, questionable taxidermy, and tales of epic revenge. Twice monthly at DNA Lounge!
