The illest music

Denied: Fishtown residents put the kibosh on Grasso’s proposed venue

Well god damn.

Fishtown residents voted 57 to 38 against the venue. Seems like they’re mostly afraid of what drunk concert goers will do to their properties after the show, which I have to say is a somewhat legitimate concern, but I fail to see how drunken college students and kids from the burbs going to shows will be any more dangerous than all the drunks that already roam Fishtown.

Check out those links to see a video of Grasso talking about his venue and the totally sweet floor plans. Grasso, apparently, isn’t giving up, and I hope this works out. Seriously, go check out those floor plans. This place would kick the ever-loving shit out of The Electric Factory.

    Thanks very much. I am committed to bringing better live music experience to Philly. However, much respect to the Electric Factory and Larry M. Here’s hoping we can both do our fair share of business. Philly needs more than one venue of this size.
