New Downtown Phoenix Music Venue Valley Bar to Open in May

Local concert guru Charlie Levy has something cool in the works for downtown Phoenix -- and, no, its not an attention-grabbing festival à la Viva PHX or Los Dias de la Crescent. Instead, its a brand new music venue.

Levy, who co-owns the Crescent Ballroom and runs concert promotions company Stateside Presents, is opening a second live music spot in downtown Phoenix called Valley Bar sometime next month.
