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.

Cat Valley (BHAM) – https://catvalley.bandcamp.com/
Cat Valley is a feminist surf pop-punky trio that writes songs about cat-calling, misogyny, and trying to get off in our modern day patriarchy. Cat Valley features dreamy/haunting harmonies from Abby Hegge and Whitney Flinn’s vocals with melodic guitar lines and crunchy tones. Melanie Sehmen, Music Department Chair of Whatcom Community College, joined the band after a year or so and added her awesome jazzy percussive prowess to complete the sweet tones of Abby and Whitney’s guitars’.
Cat Valley started when Abby Hegge played some songs at Whitney Flinn’s birthday party and made her cry. They started jamming together and writing songs about all the shit that really pisses them off. Cat Valley’s lyrics use humor and parody to tackle difficult topics and talk about mansplaining, politics and the power of listening to each other.
Cat Valley is: Whitney Flinn on guitar/vox, Abby Hegge on guitar/vox, and Melanie Sehmen on drums.
Supermissive (BHAM) – https://supermissive.bandcamp.com/
Formerly “Avalanchea,” Supermissive is the creative effort of four individuals fusing elements of psychedelic rock, desert rock, and heavy metal into progressive and conceptual music about space, time, justice, injustice, life, and death.
TEO (BHAM) – We don’t have social media or bandcamp so you can tell we’re fresh. Joking aside, we play a mixture of bossa nova and pop with indie rock tendencies. We’re hoping it makes you want to dance and relax. A debut collection of songs is currently working its way through the studio and will, arrive with all that social media, sometime soon.
The Blood Capsules (SOLO) (BHAM) – https://bloodcapsules.bandcamp.com/
Yet another band that for all intensive purposes, is just one person in a bedroom at most times. Sad songs with happy chords.
