The Bowery Presents Heads to Philadelphia

July 12th, 2011

Despite being the fifth biggest city in the country, Philadelphia has some gaps in its music scene. So The Bowery Presents has teamed up with Sean Agnew of R5 Productions, and Avram Hornik and Mark Fichera of Four Corners Management to open Union Transfer this fall. The name comes from the original train station that occupied the building, and the venue will have flexible capacity, accommodating between 600 and 1,000 people. There should be about 200 shows a year, and you should expect a diverse cross section of bands. The Bowery Presents’ Jim Glancy tells the Philadelphia Inquirer that “hopefully, Union Transfer fills a void and energizes the whole scene.” And that begins with Philly’s Clap Your Hands Say Yeah on Wednesday, 9/21. So now you’ll have another reason to visit the City of Brotherly Love other than to get a cheesesteak. Hope to see you there.
