Rob Sacher, owner of Luna Lounge, writes in to tell us that he’s looking for a new (and third!) location for the concert hall — “After opening the new club in Williamsburg, I was unable to get enough shows on a regular basis. When the Knitting Factory expressed an interest in working out an arrangement with me I decided to accommodate their interest.” Meanwhile, he’s opening a bar, the Satellite Lounge, at 143 Havemeyer Street (between South 1st and South 2nd Streets) in Williamsburg.
The Satellite Lounge will hold about 60-75 people. You’ll be able to hear plenty of current indie rock as well as lots of favorite older stuff from many of the previous music scenes from the last twenty years. It will not have ‘live’ music … We will be doing CD listening parties, birthday events, and be open to the public seven days per week.
We’ll let you know the opening date when it’s locked down.
