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.

~AltLib is always ALL AGES~
Beetle Box is a solo artist splitting time between Little Rock, Arkansas and Grand Rapids, Michigan. As an experimental composer and keyboardist, he focuses on creating original, piano-centered electronic music for live performance. His intricate control at the keys triggers a plethora of intertwined acoustic and computer-generated sounds. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of different genres, his music has featured everything from dubstep synthesizers and pop-single samples to orchestral instrumentation’s and Indian temple rhythms. Beetle Box has carved out a niche somewhere between beautiful and strange, and consistently forges a unique and engaging experience for his audience.
Strange electronic sounds emanating from the outer void.
About the debut EP, Music For A Revolution: “A tribute to Takehisa Kosugi, this interdisciplinary EP takes inspiration from Fluxus, musique concrete, and hip-hop sampling. Synthesizer drones, tape loops, vocal samples, mangled soul records, and electronic noise are employed in this sonic assault on the American establishment. Good soundtrack for tossing Molotovs and punching Nazis.”
Ecstatic/Afro-inspired Sci-fi Industrial complete with Modulation Wheel. You might want to dance to this!
