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! We are happy to be partnering with the Flow Shala yoga studio to present many of our events in the coming months ~

This AltLib Popup Series will run through the Fall/Winter, 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.

The Best Intentions are Ani Banani and Pete Irving playing a repertoire that encompasses jazz standards, old blues, contemporary diamonds in the rough, and a surprising amount of classic-sounding original music.

Since 2003, Anna Arvan has been writing and performing lyrically driven pop music as I Love You Avalanche. In addition to myriad four track recordings and random scraps, Fiction, the first full-band I Love You Avalanche record made in the studio, was released in 2013. Since then, Anna Arvan and Nora Hughes have been playing as a two piece focusing on vocal harmonies. They have recently added drums and bass, and are recording in September 2019.

Songwriter, performer, teacher, luthier, and sound engineer – McKain Lakey knows every inch of the musician life. With voice, banjo, fiddle, and her handcrafted guitar, Lakey draws her creative inspiration from the American folk tradition, touring nationally with her patented mix of old-time tunes and new-roots originals. These originals exist wherever the imagination of John Hartford flows into the grit of Hazel Dickens—in the beating heart of contemporary Americana, forever old and new, described by What’s Up Magazine as “a time capsule unearthed, fine-tuned and re-imagined.” Lakey is also an accomplished music educator and audio engineer, exploring the power of sound from every angle and letting that experience shine through her compositions. Following the success of her debut EP “West,” Lakey is currently writing a full-length studio album, expected in 2020.
