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



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.


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.

Wish Pop's wasn't so damn far away, cuz it's a pretty cool venue. Guess I'll be making the drive to Milwaukee.

When did they sell out MSG 2 nights in a row? I remember them playing in the side venue of MSG where the NBA draft is hosted but I don't remember them headlining MSG

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.

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.

Pretty. Odd happened and they lost a large amount of their fanbase, even if they were just casual listeners. And a part of it has to do with the fact that Emo/Alternative/Rock bands (whatever you want to call it) aren't what's really 'in' right now. Compared to 2007, a lot more people are more interested in Pop and Dance music. Just look at Cobra Starship. Even though they pretty much sold themselves out, they're trying to stay relevant with the switch into Dance Pop. I'm sure in a couple of years, some bands are gonna re surge again

Yeah, same here. For them to basically compete with Club Loaded they've got to have some pretty solid people behind the whole thing.
