The Outpost Jazz Performance Space

Albuquerque's Non-Profit, Member-Supported, Community-Based Performing Arts Center

Who we are

Outpost Productions has been a non-profit 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.

Where we are:

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.

What we do:

We present a wide variety of music and more - over 100 shows a year plus Classes and Educational Programs - all kinds of jazz (dixie to bop to modern to avant-garde); folk, blues & roots music; experimental music; classical music; international music; kids's programs; poetry & spoken word; theater and performance art; puppets; visual art exhibits; and many other unique events.We're proud to present and support the work of local as well as touring artists - recognized as well as emerging artists.

How we do it:

Outpost Productions is a member-supported organization, also funded by grants (government & foundation), by donations, by corporate sponsorships, by advertising, as well as by ticket sales.IT'S A TEAM EFFORT!

Why we do it:

We do it because we love it. And because we believe that performers and audiences deserve a place to meet and experience each other, up close, in a casual, but mutually respectful environment.
