The Bowery Presents Expands with New Boston Venue

Posted on: March 26th, 2019 at 5:07 am by

The Bowery Presents is extending its venue reach in Boston. The concert promoting behemoth has been on the scene for several years now, competing with local favorite and Boston-bred Crossroads Presents.

Last week, the New York based company unveiled its latest live musical endeavor for Brighton – more specifically at New Balance’s new mixed-use complex, Boston Landing. At 3,500 capacity, it’ll be the the largest Boston venue under their belt. Only time will tell what the parking situation is, as public transportation in this part of Brighton is skint at best.

“We are proud to be part of the fabric of the Boston music community, and we are excited to continue our growth as part of New Balance’s new development at Boston Landing,” said Bowery Presents partners Jim Glancy and John Moore in a press release. “We take great pride in the business our team has developed in Boston, and this new venue will be an exciting new addition to the Bowery Boston family.”

The yet-to-be-named venue will join the ranks of other Boston clubs in the Bowery Presents portfolio, including Great Scott, Royale, and The Sinclair. Ground break is set to commence April 1, and the venue is expected to open in the fall of 2021.

We’re still partial to Brighton Music Hall, though.

Bowery Presents is no longer independent. The well-regarded promoter was acquired three years ago by AEG.
