Notable: When the band started performing around the city, it played alternative settings like art galleries, Nestor said. They'd bring in artists, spoken-word poets and filmmakers and invite them to show their work at Seldon Plan concerts, he said.

Quotable: "We try to make our shows be about everybody getting together and getting to know one another as much as it is about seeing us play," Nestor said. "I've been really excited because I've had the opportunity to do that more in the club situation."
