I'd like to discribe it as being like, The Arseniol Hall Show, rated. NC-17, and shot in someone basement in an unknown location. The show is not for everyone, but then again nothing really is! The Basement Show however, is a place where an artist can been seen when everyone else has show you "the door" If you are a talented artist, we would like to hear from you.
