For three summer Saturdays of experimental music and art, Long Island City is the place to be. Tomorrow is the second installment of HOLDING SPACE, the outdoor event series which is one of the many facets of SculptureCenter’s 2016 summer program. The concerts are organized by Sam Hillmer, who is the co-founder and director at Trans-Pecos, as well as the creator of ZS, a Brooklyn-based chamber ensemble and noise band. Hillmer, who is also known as Diamond Terrifier, is a visual artist in addition to being a producer and musician.

SculptureCenter’s 2016 summer program also includes a public art project at Hunter’s Point South Park, a conversation between artists Leslie Hewitt and Leah Meisterlin, the fifth annual LIC Block party, and a 'first Saturdays' family art workshop series. The artists performing at HOLDING SPACE all reflect SculptureCenter's zeal for experimental and interdisciplinary creativity. Tomorrow's show begins at 5 PM tomorrow—the lineup includes Abdu Ali, Das Audit, Cayman, and Gooddroid B2B Quest?onmarc. Tickets are $10 and include a drink.
