Bowery Presents has easily cemented themselves as the premiere concert promoter in the New York City area, booking shows in their fully-owned and operated venues as well as places like the Beacon and Radio City. After recently expanding their empire to both Boston and Maine, Bowery Presents has now announced that they will be opening a new music venue in Philadelphia to be called Union Transfer. The 600-person venue, which was once home to a train depot, will host about 200 shows a year and will open with a show from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah on September 21.

Finally, last fall, uber-producer T. Bone Burnett assembled an all-star roster of talent for a pair of shows in New York and Boston. Dubbed the Speaking Clock Revue, the shows featured the likes of Elvis Costello, Gregg Allman, Neko Case, Jim James, Elton John and Leon Russell. On October 18, Shout Factory will release an 11-track benefit album culled from the Beacon Theatre performance, with the proceeds going to The Participant Foundation, which supports the inclusion of music and arts education in public school systems.
