It’s been almost two years without any live music and some venues were being forced to close their doors for good. Fortunately, there have been new ones opening up.
In Horseheads, NY, located in Chemung County, a new venue has arisen called The L, and its owner, Adam Bunce who is the organizer of iMatter Festival on September 16th, kicked off a show that did just that. It was only fitting to bring August Burns Red Leveler 10 year anniversary tour to be the first act, they were accompanied by Fit For A King, Erra, and Like Moths To Flame.
This new space has the capacity to fit 300, 500, and 1000 attendees in different rooms, and while this show wasn’t a sell out, attendance was definitely high. The show kicked off with Like Moths To Flames, followed by Erra, Fit For A King, then with heavy hitting August Burns Red.
With an owner who is used to running a festival with more bands and way more attendees, everything felt smooth, from the time you parked, till the last band, and even the food from the cafe was reasonably priced.
The night seemed like a huge success and they already have a line of shows announced. Head over and see what they have in store.
