One of Denton's larger and beloved venues, Boiler Room has decided to stop having large shows that require a cover. The rumors were confirmed today on the Boiler Room facebook profile that the venue will rebrand itself as a happy hour bar named "Abbey Underground". After speaking with the owner, Tim Trawick, he reassured me that smaller shows that don't require a cover would still happen, but that the large shows will be a thing of the past. To clear up any confusion they posted this comment:
For clarification, the Boiler Room is not closing down, we are just reformatting and getting rid of covers. So now we will be a free bar every night of the week. In addition to our dance nights we will still be doing live music, it will just be in a different format than we currently have. We are moving towards an Iris...h Pub feel and away from the industrial feel of the Boiler Room. We will remain open the entire time
The final show as The Boiler Room will be this Thursday with Foe Destroyer, Fatty Lumpkin and Boxcar Bandits. RSVP here
So luckily we can still expect music to be apart of Abbey Underground, but not to the scale that brought amazing acts like Electric Six, Health, Fair To Midland and other big acts to Denton. Stay with My Denton Music for updates on the venue transition.
