Walker’s Point Music Hall Opening Soon
New place for local music opens Nov. 17 with DJ Avets, The Atomic Spins and Blood Red Boots.
Walker’s Point Music Hall (538 W. National Ave.), as the new place will be called, will have its grand opening on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 6 p.m. to bar close. The event will have music beginning at 8 p.m., with performances from DJ Avets, Whiskey of the Damned, The Atomic Spins and Blood Red Boots.
Walker’s Point Music Hall will specialize in live music, but owner Jim Rice emphasizes that it is really a place local artists can showcase any type of original work, no matter the medium.
“Our aim isn’t to make money off of artists, but to promote and support them,” Rice says in a recent press release.
Working at the Rebel Stage, “the first independent stage at Summerfest,” helped inspired the concept behind the music hall. Rice served as the stage’s operations manager for 12 years, and has managed bands independently as well.
Walker’s Point Music Hall will launch its social media and official website “soon,” according to the press release.
