While we are in transition and continuing our search for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners!
This AltLib Popup Series will run through the summer, presenting roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges, while we search for a new space to ground our collective. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

Crystal Beth: Unleashing her first full-length studio record, PUSH THRU, a solo incarnation using wailing vocals, amplified clarinet, beat-boxing and electronics, she weaves a sonic universe all her own. Known for crafting aural rituals that encompass industrial chants, alien disco breaks, heart gushings, improvisations, and robot love songs, Crystal Beth redefines the possibilities of the voice and clarinet in tight experimental pop songs and undulating, cathartic noise cries. Crafting moments that ricochet between meditation and a full body purge, she is an electric, adrenaline inducing performer voted Seattle’s Best Classical Musician and nominated for NW Vocalist of the Year.
The Censors: Four humans, one larynx, multiple strings, several blunt objects, and a smattering of electronic devices. Influences include no wave, krautrock, free jazz, distant children crying out in what could equally well be anguish or mirth, etc.
