Outpost Performance Space

Welcome to the Outpost

Since 1988, Outpost, Albuquerque’s NONPROFIT, MEMBER-SUPPORTED, Community-Based Performing Arts Center, has been THE PLACE TO BE for live music, jazz, roots, folk, world, education and art. Click HERE to learn more about becoming a MEMBER or DONATING.

Outpost Productions has been a nonprofit arts organization since 1988. Since 1990, we’ve made our home at the Outpost Performance Space, a unique and intimate, non-smoking, non-alcohol, storefront alternative performance venue.

In the spring of 2000, The Space moved to 210 Yale SE just two blocks south of Central in the heart of the University District. An elegant, nonprofit, no-nonsense, community-based, performing arts center.

Scenes from the 2007-2008 Outpost Season

Since our spring and summer seasons had to be cancelled due to the CoVid-19 pandemic and we don’t know when we’ll be able to open again for all the great performances at The Space (& beyond!), we thought this would be a good chance to share some videos from past seasons that we have created over the years for grant applications and such. It’s always fun and amazing to look back and remember the incredible variety of performances we have had the privilege to experience at the Outpost year after year. We thought you would enjoy taking a look back as well! The 2007-2008 Outpost Season alone (see video below) featured Stefon Harris & Blackout; Ingrid Jensen; Chris Calloway; Red, Hot & Red; Kurt Elling; Mose Allison; Wynton Marsalis & the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra; Marie Knight; Kelly Jo Phelps; Po Girl; Carolina Chocolate Drops; Iva Bittova; Nicole Mitchell, Hamid Drake, George Lewis; Habib Koite; Zakir Hussain’s Masters of Percussion; Inpost Artspace Gallery; A.B. Spellman Poetry Reading; La Juerga Flamenco Ensemble; Anat Cohen Clinic w. Outpost Advanced Youth Ensemble; Kids Show w. Anya Lipkowitz (and Stuart); Roust the House Teen Show w. Morgan Laurence & Elena Saavedra Buckley; Laryea Addy’s African Drumming Class Recital; Outpost Youth Ensemble featuring a very young John Maestas; Sonny Rollins; and Cassandra Wilson! Wow Wow and Wow, Right?! You can also go to the New Mexico Jazz Festival page and check out a video from our 2016 Festival!

Educational Programs

All classes are taught by the Outpost team comprising saxophonist Kanoa Kaluhiwa; pianist Jim Ahrend (Jazz Improvisation); trombonist/percussionist César Bauvallet (Latin Music); and vocalist Maryse Lapierre (Music Together). We aim to build positive attitudes, trust, teamwork, cooperation, confidence, compassion, and a sense of humor—everything you could ever want from music. Both Youth and Adults will perform a recital for family and friends at the end of their session. It is expected that students will have their own instruments to bring to class. Outpost will provide a piano, a drumset, and guitar & bass amplifiers.
