Cleverly named venue announces first set of bookings
Tue Jul 10 2007
Few surprises on the just-announced calendar for the Music Hall of Williamsburg, though a new venue getting out of the gate sure-footed would certainly involve keeping risks to a minimum (and besides, there are few surprises anywhere on the NYC live-music horizon). The opening night with Patti Smith is already sold-out, but tickets will go on sale either this Friday at noon or next week for: Joseph Arthur (Sept 7); the fast-rising local act Vampire Weekend (Sept 8); Clap Your Hands and Impeach the Vice President (Sept 10); the Walkmen (Sept 14); Bonde Do Role (Sept 15); the Black Lips (Sept 19); Les Savy Fav (Sept 21); Medeski, Martin & Wood (Sept 27); Fujiya & Miyagi (Sept 28); Jose Gonzalez (Sept 29); Boris + Damon & Naomi + Michio Kurihara—now that's a bill (Oct 3); Sunset Rubdown (Oct 8); and High on Fire + Mono + Panthers, also a killer show, on Oct 9 (tix on sale Jul 20).
