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.

Body Conference // Arrington de Dionyso // K. Kunkel
March 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Three artists join us this March 26th for a night of ‘sound, song and elegiac trance’, centered thematically around loss, elegy, release and letting go. Eclectic artist K. Kunkel offers us the vocal channeling of grief and surreal, unedited prose with sparse musical accompaniment. Body Conference, the project of writer, artist and theologian Ashley Chambers, will present a live sonographic iteration of her new book The Exquisite Buoyancies — described as an elegy for a departed spirit. Lastly, we are joined by experimental musician Arrington de Dionyso, who uses the voice and bass clarinet to pulverize your atoms with a 3million gigabyte download from the cosmic serpent.
This intense show wraps up the first month of the Alt Lib Radio Hour and marks the second in-person installment of the series. RAIN OR SHINE. To RSVP for space in our backyard, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alt Lib Radio Hour is a new livestream performance initiative broadcast every Friday out of the Alternative Library. ALRH understands live-streaming as not merely a response to COVID-19 but a site of indeterminate possibility: where the internet is available, so too is an entire world of art and culture.
While intended to transition into (coterminous) live programming as weather permits, Alt Lib Radio Hour commits to exploring the emancipatory potential of live-streaming technology, which enables and engenders DIY relationships across borders and encourages collective innovation in an otherwise stratified reality.
We’ll be hosting new music and art each week, accessible to all via Instagram Live. Expect satellite shows in remote cities, audio-visual installations from artists across the globe, new and exciting local music — all rendered audio-visually with utmost care.
