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.

INDIRA VALEY is a queer Latina multi-disciplinary performance artist and avant-garde musician. She channels powerful songs that reverberate with the voices of her ancestors and speak directly to modern audiences. Her ancient-sounding, resonant voice is a force of nature, and she utilizes a unique palette of instruments (flugelhorn, timpani, kalimba, bike wheel, and electric guitar) with effects pedals to create mesmerizing and memorable live performances that are ever-changing due to her spontaneous improvisational magic.
A STICK AND A STONE crafts haunting, minimalist, choral-ridden song-spells on electric bass laced with improvised strings, ambient field recordings, and poetic imagery. Led by an openly trans and disabled vocalist-composer, A Stick And A Stone is devoted to shedding light on the unseen and unheard. A Stick And A Stone uses music to converse with nonhuman life forms, fallen friends, and mysterious forces with reverent inquiries into surviving and restoring our fractured world. A Stick And A Stone has been found touring across this continent for the past 11 sun cycles.
PORCH CAT Porch Cat is a queer, feminist, power-pop dream-punk trio making music about dreams, illness and pain, colonization, trauma, and love. Porch Cat weaves melody and poetry with upbeat pop-punk songs and sludgy ballads – characterized by the tones of custom-built guitar pedals, punchy – yet nuanced – drums, and vocals that range from poppy harmonies to raw screams. As a band of all queer women, and individuals living with chronic health conditions, Porch Cat strives to push the boundaries of representation in music, as well as fight for feminism, queer rights, and disability rights.
CAT VALLEY – “Love thy cat as thyself”
