Teach Me Equals and their compelling collaborations

There was once a show called Duets - please, lord, let this show actually be canceled, because I can't be bothered to look it up - where young performers from around the country were tasked to perform duets with professionals. What made this shitty show interesting was the unstated premise

Wednesday, Sept. 3 & Saturday, Sept. 6: Electrisad

You have to hand it to Electrisad for giving themselves a name that encapsulates what they're about better than I ever could.
