The Looking Glass Workshop (LGW) is an indie/underground music label and art collective. The Looking Glass Workshop has put out underground acts, mainly in the Philadelphia area, including Echo Orbiter.[1][2]

At the Looking Glass Workshop

The Workshop assembled gatherings throughout the Northeast United States, and has worked with aspiring artists promoting an experimental intelligentsia. As a sort of art movement, the Looking Glass Workshop embodied no particular style, but rather comprised a multitude of eclectic, self-promoting, and talented artists, poets, writers, filmmakers and musicians throughout the Philadelphia area. Some include: Echo Orbiter, The Shiver Bones group (artists), Alka, Trouble Everyday, the Flying People, and NetWT.[3] In addition, the Looking Glass Workshop also houses the recording studio of the same name.[4]

The Looking Glass Workshop was able to elaborate on the early years of the 2000s (decade) music/art scene already building in the Philadelphia underground. Such events as First Friday art gallery exhibitions and music festivals were regular hang outs for members of this diverse subterranean culture.[5]
