About


Welcome to Odd Salon in the quarantine times. 
Odd Salon is an independent community project dedicated to finding and sharing stories from the odd corners of history, science, art, and adventure. We bring experts and enthusiastic amateurs together to tell strange-but-true tales live on stage, 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.

But, right now our stage is dark, city streets are empty, and our speakers are lockdown their their various corners of their various cities.  As we hunker down in these odd and uncertain times, we'll be doing our best to keep the weird flowing. 

SO:

If a story on our stage ever ignited your curiosity to learn more….
If you’ve joined us as a speaker or as part of our rowdy audience…
If you’ve ever learned something weird…
If we’ve brought a little bit of odd joy into your life…
If you want to find out what's next... 
If you are bored out of your mind and want some weird in your apocalypse... 

Please consider joining us as a patron.

We need to buy a lot more tea. 


“Odd Salon is one of the last great vestiges of Bay Area curiosity culture. They have found exactly the right blend of avid amateurs, appropriate production values, and fantastic research. We need more institutions like this.”
-Alexander Rose, Executive Director, The Long Now Foundation
