Rockwood Music Hall “Stage 2″ now open (Grace Potter playing there before Poundcake tonight?)
Rockwood Music Hall's rumored new space opened earlier this month with a show by Zach Williams. It's right next door and they call it "Stage 2". Now I've Heard Everything reports that, "Stage 2 will have a capacity of 150 to 200, depending on the configuration, is adjacent to the current Rockwood Music Hall (which will get the retronym Stage 1) but must be entered separately...
"But one note: the name Stage 2, while true and accurate has absolutely no pizazz. Some friends and I decided a while back that this new larger place should be called The Rockwood Colosseum. And to some of us, that is what it will be."
Poundcake (Teddy Thompson, Jeff Hill and Ethan Eubanks) was scheduled to play the Rockwood Colosseum tonight (4/22) at 8pm followed by Teddy playing his own set at 10, but now Rockwood lists Poundcake at 10, and "Special Guest" at 8. Who is the special guest? Rumor says is it's the band that played a free show in Times Square this morning and who stays in town to play another Friday at Grand Central.
