Pat Troxell of the Phonographic Arts Philadelphia booking collective (and drummer of Creepoid) just dropped us a line to let us know that Phonographic Arts’ time at Little Bar has come to an end, and they’ll immediately be moving over to The Level Room in Center City. According to Phonographic Arts’ website, all shows previously scheduled to take place at Little Bar (beginning with Thursday’s performance by Boogiewitch and Spacin, as well as the New Year’s Eve showcase featuring Bleeding Rainbow, Eternal Summers, Creepoid, Slutever, Fire In The Hearts And Minds, Pink Skull, and Exploding World) will now be held at The Level Room. From Pat:
The Level Room will provide Philadelphia with three floors of live entertainment. This will feature DJ events, and performing arts. The much anticipated New Years Eve’s performances by Bleeding Rainbow, Eternal Summers, Creepoid and many more through the Jan 20th Art Exhibit opening from Philadelphia Photographer Matthew Gallagher
We would like to express our out most appreciation for all the support which we have received and look forward to the future.
See ya in 2012 on the up and up.
It’s definitely an interesting (and sudden) development, given that Little Bar has been hosting Phonographic Arts shows—including last Saturday night’s Bands In The Backyard Episode 5 party (featuring Break It Up and Psychic Teens)—until, well, just now. It’s made even more interesting by the opening lines in the email (which has since been posted to Phonographic Arts Facebook page), in which Troxell states, “On Tuesday, Dec. 20th, 2011, with the intention of pursuing to become a dance club, the owner of Little Bar terminated all management. This also included Phonographic Arts Booking. In turn, Phonographic Arts and the entire Little Bar Staff have lifted their roots to plant them firmly in Center City Philadelphia.”
More details to come soon. You can listen to our Key Studio Session with Creepoid here; our interview with Troxell can be found here. Phonographic Arts Philadelphia’s upcoming schedule is posted below.
