Spaceworks Tacoma is a project to activate empty storefronts in downtown Tacoma with art and creative enterprise.
Spaceworks recently awarded Goldfinch—one of Tacoma’s finest local bands—a three-month artists’ residency in a Hill Top practice space next to Fulcrum Gallery.
Goldfinch plans to nest down and begin recording their new album during this time as well as open up their space to live shows and Art Walk events.
In this most recent episode (above), we have a christening of the space—headlined by one of our favorite 2011 Doe Bay Fest bands OK Sweetheart and also including live painting by Tacoma artist Briton Sukys, a hilarious bit of storytelling from his wife Megan Sukys (of KUOW) and some lovely pickin’ and whistlin’ by Grrr Animals‘ Mike Weller.
Click through, take a peep at the photos and previous video:
In the prologue—a first visit to the space and a rehearsal of Nick Cave’s “The Ship Song” for their Feb 4. show with headliners OK Sweetheart in the very same space. (More info on the show here.)
