New live music club to open Aug. 2

Posted By on Fri, Jul 5, 2013 at 10:30 AM

The Brick & Mortar Live Music Lounge will open Aug. 2 at 307 W. River St., the site of the old Live Wire Music Hall.

Tim and Jennifer Strickland, owners of the Warehouse Bar & Grill, have taken over the venue and refurbished it. "We want to offer a steady stream of regional, national and even international artists year-round," says Tim Strickland. "And we want to present them in a way that's geared more toward respectful listening as opposed to a loud bar. It's a whole different attitude and idea than what you normally find on the riverfront."

Jim Reed, who's booking Brick & Mortar for the Stricklands, says the new club will have, among other innovations, a live multi-camera video feed from the stages to large TV monitors located in the various rooms of the club.

Thursday will be "all local" night, Monday will be music-related trivia, and, perhaps most significant of all, live performances will begin as early as 8 p.m.

Band announcements are forthcoming.

The Brick & Mortar website should go live in a few weeks.
