According to Billboard.biz:

New York-based independent concert promotion company the Bowery Presents has extended its presence to Boston. The principals of the Bowery Presents have signed a long term agreement with the recently renovated Royale Nightclub to book approximately 100 nights a year with live music. Josh Bhatti will head the new Boston office. The Bowery Presents Boston is the company’s first long term venture outside of the New York metropolitan are

And…

“It’s a natural step for Bowery Presents to go to Boston because usually groups play both markets,” Bower Presents partner Jim Glancy tells Billboard.biz. “The type of music we book lends its self to Boston crowd—not only indie rock but also a broad cross section of music.”

Here’s hoping music stays in the Lower East Side.
