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 2011-2012 Outpost Season

Since our spring, summer and fall 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! Here, we take you back a ways to 2011-2012 Outpost Season Highlights with PERFORMANCES AT OUTPOST featuring NEA Jazz Master Jimmy Cobb with Javon Jackson; Grammy award winning Jazz Vocalist, Kurt Elling; Preservation Hall Jazz Band; Rene Marie; SuperSax New Mexico; Jesus Muñoz Flamenco Ensemble featuring Ileana Gomez; Sarod Maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan; Cuban Rumba masters, Los Muñequitos de Matanzas; Experimental words & sound Lisa Gill, J.A.

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.
