First Thursday: Stratos Felix Plays the Record Exchange

The band releases its first album June 4


Trevor McCleskey, Maxwell Reading and Justin Tam met in jazz choir at Capital High School and although they left high-school behind last spring, the three of them still jam together. They formed the band Stratos Felix and despite only graduating high school in 2014, the band's complex, alt-rock melodies sound more mature than the members' years. The trio will celebrate the release of Stratos Felix's debut studio album, Are We Live?, with a performance at the Record Exchange (1105 W. Idaho St.). Are We Live? was recorded at AudioLab Recording Studio and produced by longtime local musician Rocci Johnson.

The show opens at 6 p.m. with Bri Ortiz, a 20-year-old local singer/songwriter featured on the album. Stratos Felix will then take to Record Exchange's cool, new permanent stage.

Record Exchange will have buy-two-get-one-free specials throughout the store, as well as prizes and giveaways for show goers.
