These are some snippets of what was going through the OCCII between 2002 - 2009. The OCCII has a long history of existing as a self-sustainable independent venue. It provides a stage for the underground and radical music acts and its run almost entirely by volunteers. Each volunteer helps the venue in one way or another. In its 20-plus years of existence, OCCII has offered a diverse program while remaining cheap to attend.

Pão is an improvised music trio from Lisbon.
Pedro Sousa, Tiago Sousa, and Travassos play a blend of keyboard drone, mad saxophone, and electronic ambient sounds that straddles the line between jazz and psychedelia. Their first album is somber, occasionally harsh, unforgettable.
"The trio’s music is a sound continuum falling somewhere between the intersection of La Monte Young’s brand of eternal music and the tense interplay and occasional outbursts present in many of European free-improvisation’s landmarks, all the while permeated by a sense of expansion and peaking, and by the constant addition and subtraction of elements over an always present layer of silent crudity."
