Crescent Ballroom - Whatchu Know 'Bout It? No, Seriously.

And today on Mystery Venue Theatre, Crescent Ballroom -- a mystical name that almost rivals the mystery surrounding the new downtown Phoenix venue.

Formerly home to Bentley's Nightclub, whose former website now leads to the sultry, kind of NSFW, specific details about the venue at 308 N. 2nd Avenue, which will be keeping fresh downtown venue Foundry on First company,  remain unknown. 

What we know for sure is that show listings from Stateside Presents,  Songkick and band websites place The Album Leaf, CSS with MEN, St. Vincent, Liam Finn, M83, Gang Gang Dance and We Were Promised Jetpacks at the site come October. 

Based on the scope of bands being booked at the venue, (and what we saw when we peaked in the window), expect a Rhythm Room-sized venue that hosts mid-level rock and indie names.

Then again, the space doesn't even look close to being finished, so we won't really know until Gang Gang Dance plays the inaugural show on October 5. Or until someone decides to leak a little information about the place. Nudge, nudge. Hint, hint.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
