The Honey Brothers
Even though BOMA hosted several smashing events last month (Trauma, Sleigh Bells, Steve Aoki), it seems the club is changing hands and identities next weekend. Now under the supervision of former Columbus Destroyers president Dave Whinham, the century-old church-turned-nightclub reopens Friday, Nov. 19 as The Bluestone.
The Honey Brothers, a rock band featuring "Entourage" star Adrien Grenier (Vincent Chase) on drums, will headline The Bluestone's opening night, which also features ex-Saturday Night Live comedian Garrett Morris as emcee. In addition, a press release promises "a very special surprise guest" at 583 E. Broad St.
Also according to the press release: "The Bluestone’s vision for ticketed events involves intimate settings with popular artists from all musical genres, comedy and specialty programming that place an emphasis on creating entertainment history by combining these artists with special surprise guests on stage and many other unexpected elements."
They're also aiming to become the world's largest gallery of concert posters, and they're trying to rent the place out for weddings and other private events between those ambitious variety shows. I guess this means Columbus won't be getting BOMA's steady stream of big-name DJs anymore?
In the meantime, BOMA remains open. Tonight's Pretty Lights show is still a go, as are the other two events on BOMA's calendar.
The Bluestone website is still under construction.
