Been a busy couple of months. Look out for upcoming releases from Stay Fast, Parking Lots, Zeke Clemons, Petty Crime, Parsec, dUble U, Mellow Out and new audiobook by Lawrence Earle Johnson.

Did you know that Studio Anatomy is a great place to hold your private event or meeting? We've got a versatile event room with excellent sound and lighting options as well as a digital projection system that is available to use for your presentations or videos. Our rental rates are unbeatable given our great downtown location and multimedia capabilities. Come by for a tour!


For 2016, Studio Anatomy is introducing a new concept for our events to allow bands to have complete control over how they are run. Bands will have the ability to customize their show by selecting the bands they want, booking a date, setting a ticket price, gathering a crew and keeping all revenue made during the show minus a small venue rental fee. As the event host, we will design a flyer for the show, provide our sound and lighting equipment as well as a live sound engineer, sell snacks and drinks and assist with selling band merch throughout the event.

Our ALL-AGES and ORIGINAL MUSIC show philosophy will continue with all future music events which are advantageous to the growth of the local music scene. Whether you're a 52-year-old Deadhead or a 14-year-old aspiring drummer, you are entitled to enjoy a fun and safe event in downtown Traverse City.

We are now booking events for March and beyond. Give us a shout for more details.
