Alchemy Art Center will host living outsider music legend Susan Dietrich, known by most as The Space Lady, for an unforgettable performance on Tuesday, July 16 at 8 p.m. The show will take place in the Dome at Alchemy Art Center located at 1255 Wold Rd, Friday Harbor. A $10-15 donation is requested at the door.

Dietrich’s musical journey has taken many twists and turns, ultimately resulting in a well-loved catalog and dedicated international following.

From her Bandcamp-

“Transcendentally beautiful, The Space Lady’s music is returning to Earth. Transmitting messages of peace and harmony, The Space Lady began her odyssey on the streets of Boston in the late 70s, then San Francisco ten years later, playing versions of contemporary pop music with an accordion and dressed flamboyantly. Following the theft and destruction of her accordion, The Space Lady invested in a then-new Casio keyboard, complete with a phase shifter and headset mic, birthing an otherworldly new dimension to popular song that has captured the imaginations of the underground and its leading exponents ever since.”

This rare musical treat is not to be missed!
