I’ve been curating experimental music concerts under the name Popcorn Youth since 2008. I have organized events in Ithaca, NY, San Diego, CA, Portland, OR. Musicians have traveled from Finland, Germany, England, Spain, New York City, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Baltimore to perform at Popcorn Youth shows. Eclecticism of venues is a must; private homes, rock clubs, concert halls and record stores have all housed a Popcorn Youth lineup. If you are interested in working together, please get in touch with me at natasha.pickowicz AT gmail.com.
