Now in its fifth year, Outpost’s Annual Gala Fundraiser at the Albuquerque Museum has become one of the most anticipated events of the spring season. The evening features a concert in the Museum’s Amphitheater at 8:30pm (open to the general public) preceded by a dinner (catered by Slate Street Café), silent auction and raffle for 220 patrons in the museum at 6:30pm. All proceeds go to support Outpost's programs which include presenting world class and local artists at the Outpost Performance Space, jaz classes for youth and adults, art exhibits and much more. Outpost is now in it's 29th year and has become one of the premiere arts presenters in the southwest. After decades bringing raw soul to the stage for The Rolling Stones, Sting, Tina Turner and Nine Inch Nails, Lisa Fischer (who was featured in the Oscar winning 2013 film, Twenty Feet From Stardom) and who performed in a memorable concert at the 2016 NM Jazz Festival, is emerging as the most inventive and heartfelt interpreter of classic rock songs working today. Her band, Grand Baton is an organic gumbo of progressive rock, psychedelic soul, and African, Middle Eastern, Caribbean rhythms and classical influences and together they continue to bring audiences to their feet.
