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.

Cj Boyd – Bassist turned vagabond, C.J. Boyd uses bass loops and voices in order to try and stop time. On perpetual tour since March 2008, movement and stasis are both at the center of his music. Weaving together improvisation with a sparse, minimalist aesthetic, Boyd creates waves of sound, worlds of provocative unlived memories through a singular approach to the upright bass and electric bass guitar that makes everything near and far.
Animal | Inside – Downtempo trip-hop twosome Animal|Inside combine electronic drums with roving synth melodies to create the perfect musical setting for delicate and haunting vocals. Cavernous, cerebral, and just plain dark, Animal|Inside’s songs seem made to transport the listener to a swirling landscape of beauty and rawness.
Kole Galbraith (Sea) – Seattle based drone and noise artist, Kole Galbraith explores rock and roll based instruments’ revolutionary affects in various contexts and settings. Utilizing both traditional and extended techniques as well as synthesis, Galbraith combines deep drones and harsh textures to make very cathartic and emotional pieces.
