After Boheme Collectif’s shuttering, Tyler Walker and Mike Kluge began transforming a small East Nashville storefront into their own art gallery, community center, and performance space. They’ve already thrown a few shows at Queen Ave Art Collective, but none as ambitious as Mike Kluge’s continuing series Future Night, which is making its Queen Ave debut tonight at 8 p.m. It’s the perfect time to check out the digs and enjoy experimental and electronic art installations by Tyler Blankenship, David Wright Lagrone, Mike Kluge, and Taylor O’Connor. Performers include Linear Downfall, sugar sk*-*lls, Black Cat Sylvester, Zorch (Austin), and Ava Luna (Brooklyn).

METH DAD‘s Tyler Walker is throwing a “Bring Your Own Projector” party at Boheme Collectif on Wednesday, January 22nd, and he wants you to participate! BYOP is a variation of Bring Your Own Beamer (beamer being slang for projector in Europe), a concept by Rafaël Rozendaal. As the BYOB site says, the idea is simple: Find a place, invite many artists, ask them to bring their projectors. Adan De La Garza threw the first Nashville BYOB in April 2013. Inspired by Adan’s show, I threw another one in September 2013.

Tyler is looking for visual artists to bring their projectors and cover Boheme’s walls, ceilings and floors with unique visual media. The sound on the videos will be muted, so your footage needs to be able to work without a soundtrack. If you’d like to participate, e-mail Tyler at tyler.walker.awesome@gmail.com.

In addition to the projection show, there will be performances by METH DADFine PeduncleChiffonCrayons and Antidotes and The Prophet Nathan.

Doors open at 9 p.m., music at 9:30 p.m. If you’re a Facebook user, you can find out more on the Facebook event page.

Robbie Lynn Hunsinger is a Nashville-based musician, multimedia artist, hacker, coder, and all-around amazing person. She collaborated with architect Douglas Garofalo on a Museum of Contemporary Art installation. She’s also a Grammy-winning oboist with the Chicago Symphony. We’re extremely fortunate to have her in Nashville.

On Sunday, November 10th, Robbie is teaching a class on creative coding at Boheme Collectif. If you’ve ever wanted to integrate an Xbox Kinect or Wiimote into your project or learn the software programs Processing and Pure Data, this class is for you.  No prior experience is necessary. This class is part two in a series. If you missed the first class, don’t worry. It’s not a prerequisite. Robbie will do a brief review.

Here are the details:
