might go to this depending on who's opening, a lot of shows happening in the same week.

Might hit up that show at that strange new long island venue if it doesn't sell out.

I'm curious as to who's in charge of that venue, because they are getting a lot of bigger acts for pretty much just coming out of nowhere.

Phew, so I'm not crazy. I was wondering if it was a brand new venue or I had just been missing something for years.

My thoughts are that it's either someone relevant in the "scene" opened it OR it could just be booking a lot of shows because it's FINALLY a mid-sized venue for Long Island. Especially after the Bay Stage and Jones Beach didn't take off... Your choices for a show out there basically go from bar-sized to amphitheater-sized. Whoever opened it knew just what Long Island needed.

yea I was like wtf. It's opening in September, apparently Livenation is one of the forces behind it. If they run things right, this could be great for LI. This article has a picture and some info, they're definitely off to a good start with who they're booking.
