THE DOME AT ALCHEMY
$10 dollar donation
Poetic, theatric, chaotic, humorous... all of these things joyfully spill out of Fountainsun's composed vessels of song. Their performance is a celebration of this life's beauty, but also it's absurdity. Very weird and quite enlightening!
Fountainsun is the duo of Daniel Higgs and Fumie Ishii performing with a variety of instruments, singing, and reciting of verse. Their hand-made music is offered in the spirit of community & friendship as a tool for peaceful obliteration of corporate mass-media mind (body, soul) control, and its relentless program to pollute & pervert even the human imagination with the spores of its insane GREED.
Dance to the words. Interpret the beat. Vanish into melody. Reappear in gladness. All are welcome in the Fountainsound. https://fountainsun.com/

The Space Lady
Tuesday, July 16th, 8pm
The Dome at Alchemy
$10 - $15 dollar donation
Alchemy Art Center is thrilled to host living outsider music legend, Susan Dietrich, AKA The Space Lady!
"Transcendentally beautiful, The Space Lady's music is returning to Earth. Transmitting messages of peace and harmony, The Space Lady began her odyssey on the streets of Boston in the late 70s, then San Francisco ten years later, playing versions of contemporary pop music with an accordion and dressed flamboyantly. Following the theft and destruction of her accordion, The Space Lady invested in a then-new Casio keyboard, complete with a phase shifter and headset mic, birthing an otherworldly new dimension to popular song that has captured the imaginations of the underground and its leading exponents ever since." -Bandcamp
This rare musical treat is not to be missed!
