Alt Citizen, the Brooklyn-based music/culture blog and magazine, is going brick-and-mortar with their new shop, Alt Space, opening tomorrow (May 15) in East Williamsburg. The concept store and gallery is the brainchild of Alt Citizen founder Nasa Hadizadeh who dreamed of opening a storefront.

“I’ve worked in a gallery before, Front Room Gallery in Williamsburg for a couple of years, but when I stumbled across the space I was like, this is a great deal and it made sense right away,” she told Bedford + Bowery. “As soon as I found the location I was like, I can do this and it’s just like making a zine, in a way.”

The store will sell a highly-curated collection of clothing, vinyl, art prints, posters, and magazines in addition to being a gallery space. New York City-based artist Brian Leo will be the first to show at Alt Space with Pancake Ferrari, featuring paintings and floor-to-ceiling installations self-described as “garage pop surrealism.”
