ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A new-mid-sized concert hall is opening today in the Delmar Loop, right next to the Pageant.
Co-Owner Joe Edwards says the Loop is fast becoming the city’s music hot spot.
“It’s kinda the live music center of St. Louis…there’s eight different stages now to hear music in the Loop,” he says.
The Delmar Hall is meant to create a stepping stone for artists. A band could potentially start out in the Duck Room at Blueberry Hill, which holds 340; move up to the Delmar Hall, which holds 800; and then arrive at the Pageant which holds 2,000.
“It’s going to be very meaningful for all of St. Louis’ reputation around the country, not just for the Loop,” Edwards says.
More than 20 shows are booked already for October, including the rock band Stir, the hop-hop act Hippie Sabotage, and a group called Here Come the MummiesHippie Sabotage.
