Another Bowery

NYC’s The Bowery Presents will open its 550-capacity Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn September 4th with a concert by Patti Smith and Her Band.

As The Bowery’s Jim Glancy previously told Pollstar, his company secured the lease for the Northsix nightclub with the goal "to do for the Brooklyn music scene what the Bowery Ballroom did for the Manhattan scene."

The three-floor venue’s layout and design is similar to NYC’s 500-capacity Bowery Ballroom. Amenities include three bars, side balconies and a back mezzanine, state-of-the-art sound, lighting, and broadcasting and recording systems that can be used for radio, TV and Internet broadcasts.

Josh Moore, formerly with AEG Live’s Nokia Theatre Times Square, will handle booking duties.

The Music Hall is the first Brooklyn music venue The Bowery Presents will operate and manage.
