Bloggy Goodness: Bowery In Beantown

The fine folks at Bowery Presents have been a staple of NYC’s live music scene booking shows around town since the mid ’90s. The concert promoters, who own and book the Bowery Ballroom, Mercury Lounge, Terminal 5 and the Music Hall Of Williamsburg, will now expand their empire by opening their first club outside the NYC metropolitan area as they’ve signed a long term deal to be the exclusive presenter of live music at the Royale club in Boston. The 1,000-person space, which was formerly known as the Roxy, “will be outfitted for live music and have about 100 concerts a year” according to the Times with the first shows to take place this April.

Finally, for the second week in a row we’ve got some Ryan Adams news to report, as the singer-songwriter and Facebook enthusiast will release his first album of new material since 2008’s Cardinology next week with Orion. The album, which Adams is describing as “my most legit METAL record” will be issued on vinyl only via his PAXAM Recordings.

  1. Stoked about the Bowery presents news. The Roxy was always a crappy venue that just recently had it’s capacity cut by the city due to a stabbing. When Axis/Avalon were torn down to pave the way for the new House of Blues, The Roxy inherited a few of the acts those venues used to hold, but since the House of Blues has opened they’ve really monopolized things in the Bean. Maybe Bowery will give them a run for their money?
