COTFG is a volunteer-run arts organization supporting creative expression and counter-culture community.  We present and host occasions for experimental music performers and listeners to engage in safe,  ADA compliant, comfortable spaces.

Our annual New Media Art and Sound Summit® is a multi-day summer festival dedicated to diversifying Austin’s musical ecosystem.

The group originally formed at an old church on the east side in 2003 and over the years has included rotating casts of volunteers, artists, local audience and long distance pen-pals. We have presented over one hundred events to date including concerts, art exhibitions, workshops, film screenings and other adventurous excursions.

In 2007 COTFG became a sponsored project of Salvage Vanguard Theater and held monthly events at their former Manor Rd home until June of 2016. We continue to present interesting forward-thinking experimental music all over Austin.

In 2023 COTFG finally became a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

In 2024 we decided to take a break and will resume with this event in 2025.
