Punctum and second stage
This space in Žižkov is not only arguably the cosiest venue in Prague, but Punctum - Krásovka is more importantly a community platform providing space to contemporary music under the banner of sustainable growth. Be it via the resident concert series Sonitus, Punctum Tapes Label, Punctum Scene Live Recordings, or the resonant waves of Radio Punctum. The fellowship has risen to the concept of DIY more than anyone else on the local scene. For many the significance of Punctum might form a sort of lighthouse on Žižkov’s hills. However everyone can agree that the uncompromising programming makes it a sanctuary. “I would say that Punctum is more than a community,” says Šárka Pivodová one of the core members of Punctum, in an interview for Full Moon Magazine. The public might have read about Punctum a lot in the past months in connection with the Vinyla prize, which they were awarded. Festival Alterantiva will let Punctum curate the second stage of MeetFactory, on Saturday the 14th of November. One question remains: will kimchi be served?
