Where do you find great local music? Look in the STACKS.

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh presents STACKS as an ongoing document of the region’s vital, evolving music scene. Using your Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh card, you can hear sounds from all over this incredible community of diverse creators.

As an organization committed to engaging the community through literacy and learning, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh seeks to expand on the definition of what a library can be. One way of doing this is by giving a platform to artists to publish work as it is being created – without waiting for traditional publishing methods to keep up. We hope to support the local creative community in many ways – by providing instruction and resources, by exposing finished work to a larger audience, and by compensating creators for using their creations.

Open Source

Stacks is built on the open source MUSICat platform, developed by Rabble. Anyone can contribute to the project and/or use the code to develop another version of the project. Contact Rabble for more details about how you can get involved.

Share Your Music

Would you like to be a part of the STACKS collection? We’d love to help you join our community of artists. Curation of STACKS occurs roughly twice a year through a selection process involving a jury of CLP staff and local music community members. Email stacks@carnegielibrary.org to be alerted on the next call for submissions.
