Each show from May through July features a trio of eclectic electronic-based musicians performing individual sets. At the final show in August, dubbed Current -- An Open Air Workshop and Performance, all the musicians featured return to hold an open house style workshop. After a meet and greet with the audience, they will perform improvisational, collaborative sets together in three separate groups.

"If you go each month, you'll see that it actually builds toward something," says McAnally. "You can get familiar with the artists and see how they evolve and collaborate together."

The corresponding modular visual installation comes from artist Josh Welker, with his piece summer flat (she wore hot pants) 1,2,3,and 4 which consists of 80 to 100 individual painted wooden objects that Luminary cofounders James and Brea McAnally will arrange around the plaza like building blocks for each show.

"This is an opportunity for us to continue to do music programming even while we're renovating, " says McAnally, who took a break from monitoring ongoing renovations at the new space located at 2701-7 Cherokee to chat with RFT Music. Since the Luminary's relocation, the dynamic husband-and-wife duo have continued to host art programming in a temporary space at 2644 Cherokee (more info on that on the Luminary website). They are hoping to hold their first visual exhibitions at the new space in July or August.

Each show is free, all ages and open to the public. Bringing food, drink and seating is encouraged, and each performance runs from 7 to 9 p.m. Full schedule below.
