The Box

New venues are always exciting, so it was kind of cool to find out that the location of tonight's NYC Zune launch party (featuring a free show by stoner rock superstars Queens of the Stone Age) is in fact at the now-open 5000 square feet Lower East Side dinner-theatre-club-venue place called the Box (pictured above).

Remember just two weeks ago the NY Times wrote....

Another new Lower East Side club on the horizon is the Box, a 5,000-square-foot room on Christie Street whose owner, Simon Hammerstein — a grandson of Oscar — said he intended to open in the next two months with theater and music performances

Josh HommeDude, Where's My Zune
band: Queens of the Stone Age
venue: The Box (189 Chrystie Street, NYC)
doors: 9pm
show: 10 - 11pm

I have no idea how many tickets they gave out, and comments are temporarily disabled on this site so we can't discuss it (that will be fixed soon - promise). I guess if you have a ticket, get there early for guaranteed admission. Contest winners should have them in their mailboxes today.

This QOTSA show is one of six Zune launch parties happening in the United States tonight. Red Hot Chili Peppers are playing in LA, T.I. in Atlanta, Lupe Fiasco in Chicago, Morgan Heritage Band & Richie Spice in Miami, and The Secret Machines in Seattle.
