I am very excited to announce I am opening a brand new music venue in Phoenix: the Rebel Lounge.
The Rebel Lounge will be located in the same building which housed Phoenix musical landmark the Mason Jar, which itself was preceded by the fabled Branding Iron bar. The Rebel Lounge will have a brand new sound system and features a down-to-the-studs remodel and redesign. Some of the first national artists I ever booked shows for were at The Mason Jar, and it is great to be starting the next chapter in this great institution.
I also have a number of shows to announce at The Rebel Lounge. Thrice lead singer Dustin Kensrue will perform on Saturday, June 6th to promote his new solo album “Carry The Fire.” Old school punks GBH and Total Chaos will be there on Tuesday May, 26th after their Punk Rock Bowling sets in Las Vegas. Anti- Records’ William Elliot Whitmore will bring his banjo and a bass drum on Saturday, May 30th. The recently mobile monthly hip-hop night The Blunt Club will make its June stop on Friday June 12th. Also on the calendar: Agalloch (6/11), This Century and WLF PCK (6/13), Two Cow Garage (6/29) and The Lonely Biscuits (7/23).
In the coming weeks we will have a lot more information on our exact opening date as well as many more great shows to announce.
I hope you will all be as excited as I am about it.
