Bowery Presents opening 2000 capacity venue ‘Brooklyn Classic’ in East Williamsburg?

Brooklyn Classic

The Daily News seems to think so:

One of the partners behind the Bowery Ballroom, Terminal 5 and a string of popular music venues plans to open a massive 2,000-capacity venue in Brooklyn’s hipster haven.

The gigantic live music space would open as Brooklyn Classic, taking over a red brick factory building currently home to a steel fabricator at 319 Frost St., according a liquor license application to the local community board.

The application from Frobo LLC ties back to Jim Glancy, a veteran of promotional giant Live Nation and partner in The Bowery Presents, a powerhouse in the indie music scene.

If this happens, that would give Bowery Presents Mercury Lounge—> Bowery Ballroom—>Webster Hall (sort of)—>Terminal 5 in Manhattan, and Rough Trade–>Music Hall of Williamsburg—>Brooklyn Classic in North Brooklyn.
