Anchorage Music Co-op has a new home

The Anchorage Music Co-op formed a year ago and started the Artist Showcase Series, offering music created by Alaskans to audiences of all ages. "Anchorage has a happening music scene right now" said Laura Oden, a co-founder of the organization, which looks to combine "the best musicians with a small venue to create a listening room unique in Anchorage."

Last year the music was at the Out North Contemporary Art House, which put locals like Evan Phillips, Meg Mackey and Hot Club of Nunaka on stage. After a two-month break, the co-op is moving to a new venue, Fiori D'Italia's Quonset hut (formerly the Garden of Eatin), located at 2502 McRae Road in Spenard, which will accommodate more nights of music. The organization is also looking to start an open mic night and hopes to book musicians from outside of Alaska. (Full Article)
