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~
You can choose to donate directly to the benefit, which supports Bellingham Suicide Prevention & Awareness services. This event is all about the celebration of life and acceptance & appreciation of one another and ourselves!
Contributing to this benefit, there will be a licensed massage therapist set up and taking donations to give 5-10 minute upper body massage. Touch is something we need as humans, and since we are often very isolated, the simple act of personal massage can be incredibly beneficial to both mental and physical health.
In honor of the benefit, there will also be a raffle drawing for a 60-minute Empowerment and Wellness Coaching Session with Victoria Mantzoros of Inspiration Unleashed Coaching. Oftentimes, the help we need can be as simple as setting a plan and following reminders for ourselves, or just having a cheerleader by your side to help you keep to your commitments. Her sessions are impactful, compassionate, and full of wisdom.
To keep us dancing all night, we have the following featured artists:
DJ Tru-ah [Joshua Hale]
Multigenre Dance / Dub & Bass
With a potent sense of grace and fluidity, DJ Tru-ah travels through a nuanced landscape of posture, strength, and balance. Rolling in the vast ocean between stimulation and relaxation, it evokes an undulating vibe of undeniable pleasure with fresh tribal beats and vibrant global sounds. The sound waves inhabit a world where the spiritual connects to the sensual, an inspiring realm of music and bliss.
MetaPhysical [Ben Towers]
PsyDub / PsyBass
Metaphysical is an American DJ and producer from Snohomish whose outlook on electronic music has changed profoundly over the last couple of years. His intention has changed in the way of making music that focuses on the frequencies and harnessing the raw power that music is medicine. His otherworldly musical flow will have you feeling like you’re in a spiritual experience, meditation through movement can be expressed beautifully to his sounds.
winzlo [Phillip Nguyen]
Chill Dance / Electronic
Winzlo is an American DJ and producer from Bellingham whose subdued charm shines through in his vibrant mixes that embody the upbeat rhythms of house and grimey bass drops of trap that come together in harmony through his endless flow. Alongside his passion for performances, Winzo deeply enjoys music production as well and plans to unveil more original music all in due time. With things looking up for the young and upcoming producer, he’s ready to bring his season onto the night wherever he roams.
