Bowery Presents

NYC-based concert promoter Bowery Presents, who have expanded over the years to NJ, Boston, Philadelphia and across the Northeast, are getting bigger again. This press release recently went out:

Tim Sweetwood has been hired by The Bowery Presents to promote concerts in his home city, Atlanta, as well as other available opportunities throughout that region as part of the newly launched The Bowery Presents: South. Sweetwood has been the talent buyer at the Masquerade and has produced shows in and around Atlanta for the past seven years. Tim has worked with artists to grow them beyond the Masquerade, culminating in the recently completed Shaky Knees Festival. The launch of The Bowery Presents: South continues the independent promoter's commitment to embracing regional and local music industry professionals, when they expand into new markets.

"I am thrilled to say that I am now part of The Bowery Presents," says Tim. "I think this marriage comes at the perfect time. My business and relationships have been rapidly expanding, and I believe being part of The Bowery Presents will help move everything to the next level. Regional expansion has been a goal of mine, and I am looking forward to the new relationships that will come from this move.

Look for more details soon, with shows beginning this fall.
As mentioned above, Bowery Presents: South will start out with Tim in Atlanta with plans to promote shows "throughout that region". That would include Athens, Georgia, Birmingham, Alabama, and rumor is that Bowery will be doing shows at an old theater in New Orleans (The Civic Theater). Stay tuned for more details, and watch out Live Nation!

evil, shmevil. New Orleans gets about 5% of the shows NYC does, so I for one am happy SOMEBODY wants to bring some shows down here (and at the Civic too!)

5:00 is full of shit. 5%? How many handgrenades were you drinking when you posted this? New Orleans gets almost all of the shows that NYC gets ontop of all the local shit that doesn't leave the city as often. Enjoy your House of Blues 2!

1030 is polluted and she obviously hasn't been in New Orleans much. NO gets Vampire Weekend type acts every 7 or 8 months. The rest of the year it's tourist-jazz-zydeco for the baby boomers ( obviously the same demo as 1030)
